Help with Equipment for Cycle trip please.
Dec 17, 2012


I currently have a EP-3 and various lenses and a phone that can take picture ( although not that well) I NEED some help. do I take the EP-3 and say the 20mm, buy something else smaller lighter? I also was looking at uploading pictures to my blogsite at the end of each day. now I don't intend to take a laptop as will be carrying everything myself and can't see that I can connect the camera to the phone? do I go for a good phone camera? is there one? do I go for the new Samsung that has it's own internet link? HELP! Below is the reasons why this is so important.

At the end of September 2012 I cycled from Portsmouth 2 Penzance (Lands End) solo and unsupported. My intention, to raise as much money as possible for Children In Need and to complete the journey in a week. This was also be a personal challenge for me as before I created this site I haven't been a cycling in years, have a prolapsed disc, am 47 years old and a bit over weight ! well a lot really. Well I  raised over £800.In preparation for this l also did the Randonee (round the IOW in a day, cycled 70 miles )

Well this has encouraged me to do the big one in early May 2013 John O'Groats 2 Lands End !! This will also include taking in the Northerly most point on the mainland Dunnet Head and the Southerly , The Lizard. Total miles approximately 950. This time Colin, a friend is coming along for the ride !!
Due to the sad and unexpected news that my mum has terminal Bowel Cancer the Charities for this fund raising event will now be switched to support these charities: please follow me here and spread the word for me please
