Due to the impending weather and potential safety risks of 3600 skating up and down now cop it's been postponed. Unfortunately the new date is outlaw- 7th July Hope to transfer my entry to something else instead Just wait - it'll be 20 degrees by Sunday!

Probably inevitable given the forecast - lots of snow and sub-zero all weekend so even if  it melts there'll be lots of ice on the lanes.   

How about asking if they'll transfer to Flat out in the Fens - that's a good one and I think there are already some off here doing it - couple of weeks before Outlaw and it's flat so you could do it on a TT bike as a warm up.

Right. Ill sign up for it too then. 112 still seems like a bloody long way.

112 flat - it's only worth 80 or so in the hills - easy!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

(unless it is windy)

Having ridden this for the last 3 years, if that course is windy it becomes worse than a hilly course of a very hilly day

I was on it last year and found the 112 ok ( much to my suprise) but it gave me massive confidence for my first ironman at Outlaw.  I now need  a bigger challenge prior to another crack at the Outlaw, What's the worst that could happen , I fail to do the full distance? That is a challenge worth taking, see you there... whatever the weather there will be no snow!

Anyone had it confirmed if you are allowed to transfer entries, K2G are suspiciously quiet at the moment. If it is allowed, think I will opt for Tour of the Peaks. If transfers are not allowed, quite frankly they can f##k off and never get a penny out of me again

Yes. We normally stay at a travelodge just down the road. I'm hoping I can blag a lift with Kilotogo there and back. Ill just help out with anything they need before and after the ride.
Shall I see if I can get us all in the same wave / group to start?

I will be travelling down early and hopefully will see you all in blinding black and gold, if your on for the 112 we can at least play around for the first 50 miles or so until the route splits.

I can then play around with next century and try not to get lost!

Booked into a travelodge but not the one thats 1 mile away, this one is 3 miles away (cheaper and don't have to pay for parking)
