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

they are lovely and gentle, with marshmallows at every bend in case you do fall off

I am liking the sound of that

Re apartments, they sent me an e-mail too, so you should get one Pingu. 

I am imagining you both riding down the hills with marshmallows between your bottom cheeks.

Yup, got an email to cheers, though forgot to pay today, doh...

As to the marshmallows and bum cheeks, what a lovely way to keep your arse warm

Not sure if there is any other conversation on any other tri-based forum that would suggest marshmallows between bottom cheeks 

Although on slowtwitch they'd probably debate whether the pink or white ones were heaviest, obviously pink

Cupcake, what is this slowtwitch you speak of?

Ahaaaa ... but which ones are the quickest??

Who is going to be daft enough to venture outside for the long bike tomorrow then ???

Planning a long in, whether it happens or not is a different matter...

Looking pretty inviting out there today, non stop rain but tropically warm at 7C, better suck it up and get out there I suppose 


Edit: bailed after 60-ish, nothing in quads at all, try again tomorrow, but not for that far!

5.5hrs in the bank

Boy that was that hard work

Erm....responsibility for sorting this trip was left in the hands of someone else and now I am worrying cos you lot is talking about final payments for instalments and he is not currently in the country. Should I be booting someone up the arse in case we end up sleeping on the beach :/
