most of the pirate kit we buy is in mens sizes......or unisex as they prefer to call i wear mens sizes most of the time........

Is there a specific reason you want womens kit....are they cut much differently to the mens......

Men's sizes are usually equivalent to a size up on women's sizes. Men's 2XL or 3XL is equivalent to Women's 3XL or 4XL.

for the pirate kit is 2 up so a medium man equates to an XL ladies...........doesn't matter what the label says as long as it fits

Hello Trinolonger, feel free to PM me, think you do it by clicking on to my name and will get a drop down menu. Hope you've had some success with your kit queries.

Know what you mean about the sizing Seren, my OH current fave cycling bottoms are a pair of ladies large 2XU compression leggings! (From T K Maxx bargain bin!)

buttercup, OH did the 100 miler last October and said the course had been designed by a sadist! I did the short route and that was a really nice ride. We are both doing the 100k this weekend - I think the routes been reversed from last October so up Nanpanton Hill to start (yay!)

I will be in a pirate top see you out there!

Will look out for you! I'll be the one frantically jabbing my strava app. (Very sad, I know)

Hi Buttercup, saw you there (at least pretty sure it was you, only person I saw in a pirate top!) on Charley Rd just after the Iveshead Rd descent. I would have said hello but it looked like you'd stopped to help another rider so didn't want to but in.

Hope you had a good ride, Beacon Hill up was a bit yuk at mile 55!

Hahaha yeah I was with SuperCaz - I had a wee bit of a detour after the second feed station the silly sign was pointing the wrong way  but all good was a nice day out and my legs coped quite well with the hills.  I have been doing Beacon Hill/Dean's lane loops so I felt okay with that bit of it

What's your next event?

That must have been annoying about the sign - must admit, I had to do a double take to make sure I was on the right route. I did Action Medical warwickshire 100k the weekend before and the three routes were colour coded which really helped, you really couldn't go wrong!

I need to start heading out to Charnwood side and get on the hills a bit more frequently, currently just doing one hill session a week and dodging off to lovely flat Bosworth area the rest of the time. Also just started the track sessions at Mallory Park.

hope you managed to sort Supercaz out, was it mechanical?

and after saying I'm going to get more hill work in, next event is likely to be the Arrow ( pretty flat!) on 1st June, but I'll go for the 100 mile option and try for a decent time. I've also signed up for the womens Rapha 100k challenge at end of July which you can do anywhere, just need to upload your gps stats when you've completed your ride. That's got to be a good one seeing as it's free! 

What events have you got planned? and I'm going to try and get over to watch Bosworth sprint tri!
