Outlaw website says that there are 19 feed stations on rum, no mention of thebik route though.

So what does an Iron distance feed station supply. A guess from the website that it is High5 drinks, but do they have food and if so, what, or do I need to attach a basket to my bike.

No food was supplied at the Outlaw bike feedstations last year, we were just giving out High 5 drinks and water.  Assume it will be the same this year (suggest you check the race pack).

I have already been in touch with One Step Beyond and we are pencilled in to run Bike Feedstation 2 again the same as last year.

Barlos ... I contacted them as well, lets hope they dont think we are running two of them



CD, whatever they promise at aid stations on the bike I would always take everything you need with you on the bike in the event that may well have run out of something that you were banking on

Meldy get your thinking cap on, we made an impact last year but this years got to be bigger and better.  We need bunting, balloons, cheesy tunes.  Think we should all do it in pirate kit this year to.

CD - get a bento box for the top tube of your bike and cram it with nice stuff that you like to eat.  You will need to take on fluid - but I'd rather be self sufficient on the fuel thing - so you have what you want and dont need to collect it. Less to go wrong.

........because CD there is always the chance that someone will drop the water butt and there will be no water to mix the High5 with

Cougie, is a bento box a modern day basket then?

Saffy, you seem to be referencing something, bit cryptic for me or is it a 'need to know'' thing.

Seriously though thanks for your answers. the term FEED STATION makes it sound like food so I am really glad I asked.

 We had a 'little incident' at the feed station last year.....all got sorted though.

The Pirate feed station was absolutely brilliant last year - probably knocked 15 mins off my bike time!

I reckon the cheesy tune should be the Captain Pugwash theme (thats for all us old uns that can remember that far back)

DTB, which travelodge are you staying at for £9=.

Lol Melds, good plan!

CD - Nottingham EM airport. About 20 mins drive away, but the quietest nights sleep last year. We got the room in the Jan sale though, not sure what price they would be now.

Thanks for the info everyone,

Never had a 'food'station on a run. Will have to start practicing eating and running, especially the jaffa cakes (yum yum)

DTB, Looks like I missed the boat on Travellodge as they all seem to be about £30 or more now.

Cake, have toyed  with camping as other threads say the closeness to the start makes life so easy.

However, as i have never really camped, and dont have a tent not sure about it. Have looked at tents though and seems one can be bought for £25/£30 so cost won't be much different 

This from a man whose never really ironmaned before!!!!

ps who is Dave
