I am soooo looking forward to this!
28/03/2013 at 19:02

me too...although starting to get race nerves as this will be my first tri. I'm not at all concerned with the distance as I was with all my previous first time races, just about the other 'stuff' - transition/what to bring with me on the day/whether to change fully at transition or not...basically sounding like a big girl(no offenceto the female population understand)

During transition I'm going to take the opportunity to work out what to do and what mistakes to avoid on the 'real' day - we'll be amongst friends, so I guess we can muck up with no major humiliation !!!
30/03/2013 at 09:15

I just want to finish the whole thing without cutting anything short for a bit of confidence. Doesn't matter how long it takes me (within reason lol). 

Transition is a little rest isn't it? I may have got that wrong.

i'm trying to remeber to pack from the caravan what i need for camping.........as i will be camping here and at outlaw before the summer

hubby has 3 more weeks running before he can get on the bike........he has a posh new bike for 18 months and hasn't done more that 100 miles in total on it........

no doubt he will still beat my time

Cheers guys, I think it's just usual pre race not having done it before nerves, might have a cycle over to macc next week and potter around the route. Just for familiarity.

Any chance of a link to the bike route, SA?

BIKE ROUTE MAP

 

 

On my way home today I passed by Macc so went for a look at the leisure center and found the rear car park where T1 needs to be has a locked barrier across it's entrance/exit.

 This could be a problem.

If it has to stay locked then that means we could stick the racking up anywhere as there will be no ther traffic to worry about

but the bike exit becomes a bit more tricky then.

 The mount line would need to be over the speed bump.

The leisure centre have told us that the gate will open, they close it round the bank holidays as they get loads of gypos, turning up and making the car park their home for a bit

Cool, that puts my mind at ease, although the patch I thought would make a good T1 area is very rough and gravely, might have to re think that positioning.
