So in true Pirate fashion, I should start with a rest day then and just go to the pub?

Pirates dont run, it is perceived as cowardly. Pirates are like glaciers, they ominously keep moving forward by sheer pressure.

Not sure if this would help, but we're staying at CLS and rather than using taxis have hired a car out - the cost was only £71.00 for the full week. Don't know whether that would work out cheaper than hiring taxis.

it might be freezing but it makes beautiful patterns on the road where it looks like dry ice being blown around on the surface........such a magical look that is better witnessed from the inside of a warm car.not from the saddle of a bike

Schmunkee - I've sent you a response, but not sure whether I've done it right.   Any problems, let me know.

If nothing else we will be as tough as old boots come May

Quite warm on the bike commute this morning, well, it was +1C so relatively warm I guess. Hoping to get 80+ miles in the bag on Saturday, may well be a touch damp out there, joy!

They send me a email.... but that might be as I've had bank cards re-issued since I originally booked (thanks to little internet tinkers!!)

Does anyone know ... probably OC ... (and I'm sure this info is on here somewhere but haven't the time (can't be bothered) to rummage!)

The bike route ... what are the descents like.  Are they long sweeping descents or are they the bum clenching ones where I'd probably be happier getting off and pushing my bike down!

I don't mind whooshing down hills as long as the road surface is good and you can see a fair way ahead.  Some of the lovely Welsh mountain descents scare the crap out of me.

I think they are bottom clenching
