cake have you manage to fit a bike computer to your bike yet?

I was hoping to do this one, this time around, but haven't made the progress that I wanted. I think I could have blagged the Oly swimming distance, with some extra work, but I'm miles away from the bike and run distances at the moment. Hope you all have a great time. I may pop down to watch.

cake, you can pick up a profile design computer mounting bracket from wiggles

thats cool to have a friendly bike shop as i feel some of the descent bike shops in manchester are slightly up their butts at times...

SA I think that means you can smoke at the lights and get the time taken off?

Must remember to pack them in the bento box

Perhaps I should turn up with a set of temporary traffic lights, an official looking clipboard and a stopwatch... I could then set them to red for everyone but pirates and pretend to be noting down wasted time.

They are also looking for marshals. You receive a goody bag, £10 for travel, T-shirt and pair of sunglasses.

Look on website for details and contact, believe they are desperate for help.

Just read the cut offs - think I might be struggling to make the bike   but i guess I'll be so  dizzy after lap after lap after lap it won't make thst much difference

I think Liverbird is marshalling.

I would help out but I'm trying to take photos so people will benefit in other ways.

decided against it, have enough on and don't need a bad race at the moment so concentrating on Cardiff Half and Nantwich on the way. Calfie is doing the Oly,.

*just passing by, honest* 

I was on the way to see the in-laws for Sunday lunch, driving up the Eccleshall Rd (A519), and saw a couple of pirates, mid-cycle. Gave a wave and a shout - hope it all went well guys

Hi Frodo

It must have been me that you passed as on the last lap, someone leaned out of a car and shouted "GO PIRATES"

Think Richard123 would have been he other one as he was just behind me.

Thanks for the shout

my race report can be found at the IMUK training thread

Nam, can you send me some pictures, don't have acces to arsebook

Thanks, SA - my first ever Pirate spot, yay!*

It looked like one hell of a hill you guys were cycling up - awesome

*Edited to add - first ever Pirate spot in Pirate kit (apologies to Cake who was spotted with bike last week )

Yep, that was me Frodo; startled at the horn blowing thinking it was going to be some miserable fecker moaning about all the bikes but when I saw a happy smiley face and someone waving it gave me a real boost - good one!

Good report SA and good to meet you at last. I'm feeling tired today and struggled on the last lap of the run so not the great confidence boost I was hoping for but I thought the bike and run courses were good let down by a really poor swim - having run around the lake now I think it would have been better to have extended the swim course and had less laps which would have stopped some of the bunching.

At the second turn I saw two guys(?) have a head on collision as they were both slighlty off line

Certainly.  Pics should be up later tonight and I'll mail a link here.  You can mail me if you want any jpgs.

Wow!   Great news.  I don't think he knows that yet.  Will drop him a text.
