Post Henley / Wales  late September sounds good for me! And no,

Engineer, you can't. Unless you can do it on a unicycle. No man who needs a triple in the Surrey Hills is allowed!

dustboy.don't agree re marathons..........you can get such variety in marathons.......London, beachy head, snowdon, the sandwell one where you run through the longest canal tunnel in pitch black for ages.........

 so many to choose from and all so different

Noticed they hire bikes as well for those that don't want to bring their pride and joy

How about making it a 'handicap' type event where everyone hires and races on a 'Boris bike'?!!

I'll hold the stop watch!

Oh and I *need* a triple in Surrey!  It's a power to weight ratio thing!  In that I'm too heavy for my legs!!

If it ends up a hill, the triple will soon be leaving you for dust, Aird. Not so certain if it goes to a bunch sprint...

Sounds like 'handbags' to me!  And in that scenario, I know who my money will be on!!  ;)

But you have to cart eight tons of triple up the hill.

Sounds awesome. Would be great to meet some pirates. Sadly I'm doing a sea swim last weekend of Sep - trying to work out if I can hack iron distance sea swims. :-S

Prince S - Barlos and I once pondered the logistics of doing a PSOF bike ride on Boris Bikes. Or a TT round Hyde Park on them.

Well, I'll only be any good against The Ingenieur and Gladys if we go around the 2km 75 times approx. And even then, I'm not sure I'd beat The Ingenieur.  Gladys would be a piece of piss obvs.

A party at your house Mr Foo?  Are you quite, quite mad?

We' d let Gladys do the early work - that's one hell of a draft.
