no worries, will nice to have the company.

Last year I cycled from Middlewich - Chester - Corwen - Bala, think it only worked out around 70 miles with a bit of climbing!!

That'll do nicely. Might have to drive to yours though!

Considering entering the standard in September.  Is the bike course fairly flat then, as it says its a fast course?

I'm doing it in June, testing the tent out before IMCH in July

Pudge, from what I understand it's a hilly course on the bike, but I could be wrong!!

Pudge, i'm afraid the bike route is anything but flat!!  That said, some folk don't find it too bad.  The course can be a bit windy sometimes too.

Thanks guys.  I will probably go ahead and enter anyway.  If I start avoiding events on the basis that they sound too hard or hilly etc, then I've failed at the first hurdle!

Pudge, the year I did Bala, I came last, hahaha, but I still made it round the bike course.  I'm shit on hills, but got round, so if I managed, you'll definitely manage!!!  There is only one 10%-er, and it isn't very long; the rest of the hills are a lot less steep.  It is a lovely course.  The run is a bit hilly too, but do-able.

Great attitude Pudge its a tough course but with hills you get some great screaming descents It really is a great race

Pudge is talking about the Oly in September, which is a very different bike & run course to the Middle in June
