Prior to touring, I had done a whole lot of long distance cycling events and even more rides of various lengths.

I get nervous before long distance cycling events ... but not before heading out on a tour. Heading out on a tour is like going on a casual day ride somewhere.

Plus, I've usually been spending so much time wrapping up things at work, packing, etc. etc., I'm actually rather exhausted when I set off on a tour.
