Most impressed, sir - that's going to be one heck of a ride!

Would be glad to offer some moral support on some of your way through Fife, but attending my monkeys' school sports day probably ought to take priority... :-)

Hope you manage to dodge all the rain, and only have tailwinds to speed ye on yer way.
