Yep .. I spoke to Barlos too ... via a text tho, its safer!!

Talking of which, at the risk of repeating myself, mountain biking this weekend ???!!

I wish I could get away with the text approach

No MTB for me this time I'm afraid as Project Schmunks is now in it's second week and is going well and I don't want to affect the mojo by missing a session .

Soz to make you the Community Worker this time

Just reading the small print for the Monarch bike luggage - max 20kg allowance. Now the bike box weighs 13kg and the bike weigh 8.5kg, which totals 21.5kg! So is that an good enough excuse to buy a new, lighter bike?

Sounds good to me Raf!

I've just had a call from a lovely woman at the company confirming the booking.  I mentioned to her that Barley had mailed and that she'd received a rash of bookings yesterday and that we were all friends.  She said that if I contact her nearer the time with all our details, they can place us all in close proximity to each other.  I said we don't need apartments with the joining doors but to be near to each other might be nice.

Had to pull my name from this, sorry folks.  Going through a divorce, my marriage being my one and only DNF to date, and my life is all over the place at the moment. 

My dodgy calf/achilles has plagued me since May and I broke three ribs about a month ago.  I have felt better in my life, but I'm a pretty resilient amoeba and I just need a couple of extra months to get the monkeys off my back.

Instead of cancelling my entry, I took the recently introduced option of transferring it to IM Switzerland, which I'm hoping will give me that bit more time to clear my head and get down to some decent work.

I'll miss the craic as I think this is going to be an exceptional trip, it already has that feel about it.  Good luck to those going, I hope you'll all have a ball.

VT .. very sorry not to have you aboard but it sounds a sensible option

11/10/2012 at 21:35
Awww VT'd, sorry to hear that but you have to do what's right for you

I hope everything sorts itself out for IMCH
