Copenhagen, Denmark
Since writing last, I've made the decision to do some extended cycle touring in Europe as soon as possible. It feels good to be planning a whole new type of adventure as I've never done anything like this before. So, on Wednesday, after hiking into Bristol centre with my 21kg pack and catching the coach, I spent 4 hours rushing around all the cycle shops I could find in London to get the parts I need for my bike. Then it was off to Heathrow on the tube to catch a flight to Brussels and my connection to Copenhagen. Nina picked me up at the airport there, and it was great to see her again after being away for a month. After dropping my bags off at the flat we collected my bike from her parents garage so that I could sort it up.

Yesterday, however, when I started to clean it up, I discovered that my rear derailleur hanger was bent and the derailleur had somehow got broken. I was not very happy, especially as everything in Denmark is closed for about 5 days over Easter! Apparently shops are going to be open tomorrow for about 3 hours, so I'm going to try to find a cycle shop that can straighten it out, but nothing really happens fast here, so I don't expect it to be easy.
