Hi Seren, I couldn't log on yesterday for some reason, but that's what I was going to say, the web pages says they'll be signs up, and so there bloody well had better be!!

Happy to cycle together if you want company or just see how it goes, looks like BBT is going to do it too.

Looks like it's gonna be a rainy one though

I think with the amount of cycling you've been doing recently I'll be drafting behind you!

I was planning a training weekned in Tenby around late April. I cannot now however do this on the weekend of the 27th as I have family coming over impromptu.

I can however do the next weekend as I have only a 2 week taper to IM Lanzarote.

Anyone up for some training rides in Tenby on the IMW course?

Looks like your the guide on Sunday Seren

I will be up for doing a ride down Tenby sometime, but my schedule looks pretty busy for a while so I may not be doing it until after Outlaw.

So, 5 weeks to go and I'm started to think about getting the things I need. 

Bike box or bike bag.  Don't trust a bag so am hoping to borrow a box.  What's everyone else doing?  I can't believe how much they cost!

I got a bike box from this lot last week - was the cheapest I could find and seems strong enough (I hope) and my Pirate stickers for it have just arrived - although it does look a bit like I'll be carrying a huge case with 'Poison' stickers all over it through customs....maybe not my brightest idea!

Box for me too, a dhb one, just under £100 if I remember. Had a bag for the first trip abroad but spent the whole of the journey wondering if all the pipe lagging would be sufficient to protect the frame (it did).

I've managed to borrow one, If I thought I'd be going abroad again with the bike I'd probably think about buying one, but no .plans atm  It's all very expensive this IM malarky!

Sure is, the key thing though of course, is to ensure on the bike that at the final drinks station you make sure you pick up as many bottles as will fit on your bike as souvenirs, coz after all the £££ spent getting there, a couple of £2 bottles makes all the difference

Great idea, I'm going to take a giant backpack so I can get as many as possible

Be aware of the weight withregards the bike & box, no sneaking in heavy extras

13/04/2013 at 21:18

re bike bottles...

They gave OC crap ones on the bike last year - they were trully rubbish and you dont want to keep them.

However they sell nice printed IM Lanza ones for 3 euros... we have a couple and I am sure we will get a couple more this year

From a supporters perspective

  1. Is there an agreed wording for the T-shirts or are we doing our own thing
  2. Is anyone looking to pop out onto the bike course and support.  Whilst sitting on a sun lounger for 8 hours sounds appealing, I am sure I will get fidgety if I sit still for that long and I will want a change of scenery and some company would be good
