I'm in too and I too have a hybrid road bike at the mo'. I will be getting a Scott in April so I'm training on the Watt bikes at the gym. I like to think I will do it in around 6-7 hours - I may of course be delusional one never knows
I've just got a place for this... not sure I can be @rsed though... it's the week after IMCH. :/
Sounds like a decent taper!
JFDI. It's not a race so chill about the time (even if you wanted to go fast I fear the business might count against that) but will be an occasion to remember I think?
I still remember getting taken to watch the first London marathon when I was 10. Really want to be part of the first London cycle "marathon". Think it will be definitely something to remember and regret if you got a place and cba'd.
If you were lucky enough to get a place, please make sure you have payed by this thursday (7th March) or you will miss out.
I am all paid up
I'm in... I don't own a bike yet. Looking for some advice actually. I have signed up for a duathlon, 2 x tris (sprint and challenge distance) and I have the Ride 100. I want to buy a road bike and want to get a reasonable spec, what would you advise?
So far I have been recommended to look at bikes with a carbon frame, aluminium forks, a shimano 105 group set and to make sure I get a ladies bike. Also, it seems a bike fit is key. I've also been told that Merida are worth looking at. Are there any useful guides out there as right now I am relying on google.
Thanks M...eldy. Heading to a bike shop that has been recommended to me. Just wanted to go armed with some facts. Right now all of the above is just words! I'll see what they say
My OH has a Merida and he loves it but as Meldy says the right bike will be the one that fits you and "feels" right - sorry not to be more specific!
i'm in, but just about to sell road bike, don't fancy it on TT bike, and think box hill could be a challenge on the singlespeed.... might have to rethink equipment use again.
not even married yet and the bikes are being sold!! Sad, sad day
only to make room for a carbon based ultegra.... don't tell her....
Not Dura ace???
nope.... actually that might change i've just seen a basso astra athena @ 50% off which looks like it will fit me like a glove - pmmpf, might have to slum on campag athena 11 speed
I'm only going so that I can see Podds again
