Spot of bother

It's that time again. Three weeks before I set off on a bike tour, something has to rear up and appear to be a problem. Here is the list so far:

2000 Queensland tour: hit by a car three weeks beforehand - continued riding without even a twitch.
2001 Queensland tour: nasty crash on a wet roundabout three weeks beforehand - back on the bike in two days
2002 Victoria tour: old knee injury flared up three weeks beforehand - gone the next day.
2003 Tasmania tour: hit by a car in a hailstorm three weeks beforehand - continued riding without even a twitch.
2004 Victoria tour: stupid peak-hour crash on the sundale bridge - got up and fixed my brakes before the gridlock even moved.
2006 New Zealand tour: A wisdom tooth decided on a change of direction and had to be removed.

Now in 2007, I have another sunspot that has appeared on my face. It should be removed easily enough, but I'm going to do it tomorrow rather than let it potentially develop into a skin cancer. It does mean I won't be able to get away for the long weekend, but there are plenty of local rides to keep me entertained in the meantime. It just means the Crows Nest/Lake Perseverance tour will need to be put off once again, but I can live with that for now. I guess it will just keep me on my toes when I get to Scotland.
