The big day's getting closer!

Getting quite excited as the Bikeathon approaches. Sadly, my training hasn't been as strong as last year due to greater work commitments.  Nevertheless, I've still been able to do a few extended weekend rides in addition to my daily 20-mile commute.  These culminated in the Stratford Tempest Sportive at the beginning of June, which was a 65 mile ride covered some parts of the 100-mile Bikeathon route.
To avoid some of the physical pain that I experienced last year, I've taken time to improve the fit of my bike to my anatomy.  This has included a correctly sized saddle and slightly raised handlebar.  These improvements should reduce fatigue levels and hopefully help me to improve my ride time to below 8 hours this year.
I'm hoping and praying for good weather for the sake of everyone's enjoyment - not just for sunshine but also for no headwinds!
