*pretends he didn't answer Daniela's questions*
Are there some moments, where it's very hard to be a pirate? Yes...when I can't keep up with the drinking.

so who else has had the email with the contenders for the finish line performance..............was it me or did they all seem really lame.....................
why wasn't the pirate congo up there.............................probably because they were worried that they would have to give them all a place......................
anyway my votes for the pirates
The only thing I would say about the dorm rooms is they were pretty small - one of the girls rooms had four bikes in it, and there wasn't really any room left to stand! They all knew each other, but if you were with strangers and they also had bikes, it might be a little stressful...
Apparently they had a bike storage area as well, but I didn't see that - I think most people kept them in their rooms.
Oh, and Barley came back one night and sat on someone who had moved into his bed.... apparently the bed bookings specify which bunk etc, and this bloke was determined to have his booked bunk - even if it had been unknowlingly slept in by Barley for four nights!
I was in a double - no complaints there at all, it was fab.
Good luck with it!
I bought that box from Wiggle, my bike fitted ok but it is a tight fit. Be careful with the side catches though as when they are new they can be very difficult to undo. I sanded the plastic bits down a bit to get them to work better.
I also flew with BA as they didn't charge extra for bike carriage, I didn't have any problems except on the return flight when the check in people were threatening to charge £25 extra if the box weighed over 23kg even though nothing was mentioned about this in my ticket or at Heathrow. Just weigh your full box before you go so you know what you can carry in it.
BA have changed their baggage policy bikes are not free anymore
I think we were lucky with the hostel because we were mainly sharing with our pirates even if they were stangers pre IMCH........One of our bikes lived in the shower and another kept on visiting another room for peace and quiet............also we had bike bags in the rooms not boxes so easier to store under beds..........not sure how we would have manged with 4 bikes and 4 bike boxes
good luck and enjoy .. the race was great
