wait till the bike route is actually up then. I think the 'hill' you are talking about is Oxton - now, it isn't particularly bad. OK, I haven't cycled up it, but I have driven up it loads and it isn't bad or long. A little steep bit, but not enough to matter much
I've driven up loads of hills. None were any problem whatsoever!
what doesnt kill you ..... (probably wasnt hard enough)
very well marketed. bit of TV coverage for a niche audience. bit of good press. a few technical issues to get the crowds circuling .open and publish the takeup rate. event full, job done!
only thing they missed is emailing everyone whod ever entered before with a special early bird offer. ( might have closed before opening then ), everyone who'd ever done one of their other events ( might have closed before opening )
still. cant wait to get wet in June and hoping for the waitlist ot move on the full event...
Outlaw have just tweeted that there's some more places now available
more places for what ? the full monty ?
no, darn it, it's for the half......
I have entered this and just booked onto the Caravan park, £18 per night, very cheap which means the family can come and laugh at me plodding around
Aha thanksf or posting Chris I tried to book last year but they said the wouldn't take bookings until January, your post has just reminded me about it. Email sent.
I mailed them and got a reply today with this phone number 0115 9824721 and got booked in, no deposit just pay when I turn up
There is always an opportunity for a list.
I havevn't reallly got a plan at the moment, trying to get myself back into running after a knee injury, but the running isn't going too well, so been doing quite a bit of turboing. I need to actually bike outside though
I am starting my plan on 14 Jan, but doing a week of a little bit of everything to get in the habit. My running is limited at the moment, under physio orders but can swim and cycle OK. Only been turboing for a short while, so I do 30 - 40 mins at a time. I donot plan on cycling outside anytime soon. Maybe in Feb depending on the weather. Consistency needs to be my mantra to get me to June injury free and fit.I have cobbled together a plan using a 20 week plan off the web and bits of Fink, which I used for relay Outlaw last year.
