Good morning! The buffs are being given out by OSB at competitor registration. It appears they are being very well received

Post code for feed station is NG13 9PH.

Take A46 towards Bingham, then A52 towards Grantham. After passing through Elton-On-The-Hill turn left immediately after The Little India (former pub, now Indian restaurant). Follow the road for 4 or 5 miles through Alfreton and then you will see the feed station signs. If you have gone through Kilvington you have missed it

Morning all. Just a quick catch-up now I'm back home to say what a fab day it was at the feed station yesterday. It ran like clockwork and was so much fun. Thanks to Schmunkee for doing such a good job - you worked like a trooper. Gutted I'm not able to go to the party today so I'll raise a cup of tea to everyone at 1pm today thinking of everyone.

Morning from me too, and a big thank you for an excellent day! Schmunkee did indeed do a fabulous job marshalling the troops, and I hope everyone who did the race enjoyed it as much as we did. Fab day all round (although I can barely walk today and I didn't even do the race!)

BIG well done to all the Piratey Outlaws, SO much fun to stand and cheer you all over the line (and a special well done to Podds - knew you could do it!)

Party at 1pm you say? Will raise a cup of tea here too

thank you to everyone on the feed station, I had the quickest pee stop ever and  my bike was fully loaded for me by the time I got out of the loo! Now that is called SUPPORT!

Thanks to Schmunks for doing a sterling job of organising us in conditions that were not ideal.

The cup cakes were fab too.  Thanks to all the bakers.

My left tricep is rather sore and I keep having the urge to shout out 'Water...Water'

Many thanks to all feedstationers and supporters. Loved the upflat sign, I actually expected one!

Thanks pirates from my relay bike man Steve wearing a harlequin jersey, he thought you were all very efficient, organised and pleased to get a cheer when he threw his bottle in the trolley.

I had NEVER been so pleased to see you lot in my life as I was yesterday!

But as I wasn't in kit I don't think I was recognised.

But it didn't matter - you gave everyone the same excellent support. Thank you so much.

I won't be racing long next year (ha ha) but will be on the list to marshal if we do the aid station again (I hope we do!).

Thanks for the support folks. Much appreciated and kept me going when I was slogging into the wind at the top of the loop.

Thank you to all the pirate supporters. The feedstation was without doubt tthe highlight of the bike course and many non pirates I spoke to reallly apprecaited the humour and energy.

The cheers and encouragement on the run lifted the soul when most needed. You really did give my shuffle a lift.

Massive thank you to all of you on the Feed Station. You were fab, and the feed station was Rockin , best support you could wish for.

Loved the not a knitting club sign, made me laugh out loud

And special thanks to Schmunkee for organising it all

A massive massive thank you to Schmunkee and all the volunteers, I know how much work went into planning the feedstation and supplying the cyclists all day long.  Even though the spot wasnt ideal you all did a fantastic job.

It was great to see you all on the two laps id been looking forward to it all ride, thanks for being there for us.

I can only echo Barley's sentiments above.

The pirate feedstation was THE highlight of the bike, if not the whole race,

I can't thank you all enough for your support.

I was looking forward to seeing the signs again! Forgot about the "Bike Sale" one, so chuckled all over again.

Thanks to all the Pirates, brilliant job as usual supporting everyone ... even us TriTalkers!
