I watched some rowing at Henley years ago. Actually that is a lie, I drank Pimms and didn't see any rowing.

Did see some ridiucllous picninc action. Live lobsters in a tank in the back of a Range Rover was a sight  I will never forget.

Will be at henley in 2013 in some capacity

If we're allowed to be half-arsed can I come and play?

At the moment Henley dosent seem to have fired the level of interest as a pirate gathering as this years Outlaw did

Was tempted to come along for this as a gentle outing after IMCH, but at £340 I might decide to come and support!!

to be honest, it might be cheaper for me to do than dam thing than support as I'm sure my bar bill at Outlaw was more than that

thanks HappyChap, am looking forward to the half now

If Henley is on for next year I think I'll join in, assuming the other half gives me permission  I'm doing a weeks cyccling in the alps in early June so would be a shame to waste the training

I was planning to wait until 2014 and do Austria, if anyone has any thoughts for that the following year?

Hi Avalaf, long time no see, how are you?

My name change is because I now have a titanium hip joint.

13/08/2012 at 09:20

I'm good thanks, Titanium hip?  isn't that cheating?

I did Roth last year, was fun  Got my medal given to me by Chrissie Wellington.

Me too, the year before.

 Prior to the op I literally couldn't run for almost 2 years and have been told my long distance days are over, the joint will not cope with running a marathon. Still not allowed to try to run until December. So I'm looking at doing HIMs instead.

Well good luck with it after December, you cycling at all ?

Just had an email from Philippa Morgan, one of the organisers - they are looking for volunteers to help at this year's event.

We had a great day marshalling out on the bike course last year, but can't help this time as it clashes with IM Wales.

If you're entering next year, you could get the feel for it by volunteering this time around. They looked after us well last time!

Avalaf - I was cleared just this Tuesday to start cycling again. And driving - so am no longer marooned at home!

Joddly -  is the bike course tough? I need to find a course that doesn't have huge steep hills on it for my first race back after hip surgery.

IW - we were at the top of a fairly steep but fairly short hill, which I think competitors had to do twice, and there was one other like this. Nothing too terrible, though - certainly not like IM Wales.

you have to do the two big hills 3 times for the full distance. the only thing I'd beware of IW is the road surface. it's very rough and bumpy, not like a nce smooth road at all! I've got titanium nuts and bolts holding my back together, and find that the vibration from the road can make it all ache a lot - not sure if your new bionic hip joint would behave the same??
