CD spotted at the Wokingham Half-mara today. Romping home easily to a great finish.

I also saw someone in a Cofides Pirate t-shirt towards the BOP. I Arrghd but no reponse. Certainly didn't recognise him.

Dammit Cat, I was just about to post that I'd spotted you!  To be fair, you were easier to spot - it's morning like this that the Pirate bike jacket is made for!

I was getting very cold very quickly after the finish, or I'd have gone back down the line to say hi.  As it was, the baggage tents were across in a field which was getting muddier by the minute.

Cat - T'was me. I did hear the arrrrgghh but was too late to arrgggh back! Got a few "Go Pirates" on the way round which always makes a huge difference. 

rain and mud made it an interesting half......still haven't really dried out and warmed yet.

Anyone doing the Reading Half in March? If so I am running the 1:55 pace team so feel free to come and join me at the party end of the pack. Can't wear the yellow and black as we are sponsored but even so should be fun.

Oh! Apart from the very fast bit yes that was probably me.  If it was heading back to Aber then there was a fab tail wind .  Were you in a group?  There were so many cyclist out today, packs, singles, bikes everywhere!

Pirate who looked suspiciously like Hollywood passed heading the other way along Lodgbottom Lane on Sunday afternoon.  He had the old style pirate jacket with black arms.

CD- that'd be me (if said Pirate was on a hybrid).  Low sun made riding that road an absolute squint-fest.

Sorry FF - I didn't get a great look as you sped by and H was the first that popped into my head.  The sun was very low by then!

Lovely to see the Funkins and Ferret - largely incognito - at Spitfire/Tempest today plus an unknown to me pirate in black and yellow who looked a bit bemused by the 'go pirate' shouts his monaco attracted

Spotted 2 pirates on bikes going through Oxshott yesterday. Was in car, not sure whom they were.

TB, that was probably me and Flatfooted? I think we went through around lunchtime? 

The one at the back was me most likely, I was done by then. We'd done 50 mile loop covering a few too many upflats for someone who hasn't done enough outdoor biking recently. Slow Engineer was further still up the road, but unless you saw the Pirate/Outlaw Buff you might not have noticed. 

He was riding a triple, so probably just as well he wasn't in full pirate kit. 

Don't want the world thinking we are all granny gear riders!

Pirate spotted on the A25 heading towards Dorking at 12.30ish today...might have been Ferret?

My friend got an "argh" from a pirate at Wilmslow yesterday, l was so sad that i didn't see one. Pirate spotting has added a whole new level of distraction therapy at events. Well down all who battled the winds training or racing this weekend.

Went back to my home town of Looe in Cornwall to run the "hillish and hellish" Looe 10 miler on the 10th of March and was suprised to see a fully kitted out pirate while out on the run? Was it any of you? I am not an official pirate yet and have no kit but I'm on the Fink plan training for Outlaw this year.
