So, who's in?!

It's a perfect Pirate winter event (even if the Tripetalkers try and muscle in with a support station on the hill that we really should challenge big time... - looking at JJ, Goose etc here!), to give you something to focus on post the IM season.

AND it's a doddle to do but you get lots of cred, and you can impress your non Pirate mates by telling them you did the biggest hill on the Olympic Road Race course a whole FIVE times!

Go on then, sounds like a bit of a laff

Lol Jaffa, I was just about to object to being on that list, and then the list took a turn for the better! I'm definitely up for supporting this one - might MTB over from home and pretend it's 'training'!

Mmmmm.....cake......

Count me in for supporting.

I might even cycle over there, if I can manage to stay on a bike and not injure self before then.

And the gazillion pounds we save on the relatively steep entry fee will buy a LOT of cakes.

Big cakes.

Maybe even hot chocs to go with them!

mmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

Ali, were you drinking last night mate?

Unfortunately, having been really keen to do this one finally after hearing so much from Gladys and Henny, I have just found out it is the same day as the Mens Health Survival of the Fittest in Battersea Power Station.  Entered it ages ago with some mates from work and can't really back out of it now so am gonna have to wait till the Spring BB now.

I'm looking forward to doing the Spring one afterwards to see how unfit and lazy I have become over the winter... is it the exact same course?
