Don't think so Scuba - their websire still says they are in discussions etc etc

And I think there's about a dozen or so Pirates entered so far.

The good ol' Henley Standard were stirring things up again a couple of days ago re: bike course. Hopefully they'll get it all sorted soon.

can you imagine if it is cancelled.there would be a mad rush to get the remaining places for IMW

I think that I would be slightly annoyed. Or larger.

I'm sure they will get it sorted.even if its just for this year and then look for somewhere else a bit friendlier

Blisters - I'd be more than annoyed, even livid may not be strong enough, and if it was cancelled after IMW was full then it would be a nightmare.

Just read the article, they are stirring it up and the parish council makes it sound as if the event happens without notice and the residents aren't able to plan round it.

I just cycled past the teddy bear shop and 'unclogged my nose in his general direction' as I did so, to quote Python!!

Any more in the local press?

Anyone else planning to follow Fink for this one? Only about a month to go before it starts.

Which warm races have others entered? I'm planning to enter Marlow HIM and an Olympic at Grafham Water.

12/01/2013 at 19:16

I'll be following Fink. Is it only a month before it has to start? Oh heck.

As warm ups I'm doing Stratford upon Avon marathon (cos I want to know I can do a marathon beforehand), a couple of sportives and Marlow HIM. Also taking the bike to the Alps in August so I might find a mountain or two to pedal up

Couldn't find the Henley Times today at the in-laws. I'll keep an eye out.

I'll be Finking (intermediate) but will add more bike and a little less run I think. Will be posting here as I go. Finkettes be ready for Monday 11th February.

Events wise I've booked two sportives and two HIM's (I'm skipping the Olympic as I don't really see me gaining much from that)

Will be up for some recce'ing too if anyone else is - nearer the time and once they've sorted out this bleedin' bike route!

Oh sweet bejesus. The debate still rages:

Though from what I can gather, the town council don't actually have much of a say in the matter. It's the district council that call the shots with road closures.

With so much oppossition form the villages how many will come out to support the cyclists going past..

At IMW the villages have parties and are out cheering the cyclist on

Maybe because they know the economy needs it.....maybe henley area is just too rich with commuters that the economy doesn't need it

13/01/2013 at 09:22

Yes, I'm not expecting much support along the route.

At the moment we've got to be content with not getting pelted with quails egg's (with rosemary, sea salt and pepper dip) along the way!
