At least it's not snowing
its ok - skin's waterproof!! (I won't be that positive after 80 miles in the pissing rain I can tell you!! This is why I'm doing Lanza next year)
At least the route is nice and flat
Ever tried cycling in a wetsuit & snorkel? I'd give it some serious thought.
yes - there's only 2000m of climbs!!
Oohh cycling in a wetsuit - imagine the chaffing!!
Plenty of lard here in The Holy Land to stop the chaffing.
2550m of climbing, it'll be the 550m that will f*ck you up
Ah thanks for more gentle words of encouragement there Holgs!
I've puimped my tyres up really really really high - so hopefully the bike will float!! Supersprint is next Sat, followed by Thames swim the next morning!
Hows the calf - ready for Edinburgh?
You're busy! Good on you. Do you want some antibiotics before you get in the Thames?
Oh I'm sure I've drunk worse than good ole Thames water
Always happy to inspire RafikiD
Good luck for the tri and the Thames swim.
Nice blog Mr Tank. I love the different ways you can view it
I see you've done the Mighty Deerstalker, gastank. How stinky was your kit afterwards? I did it last year, and came to the conclusion that it maybe wasn't the best choice for someone who's scared of the dark and heights.
Raf, all the best for the etape.
That's the first time I have ever seen that asked, "How stinky was your kit afterwards?" Memories of Kim Cattral in the boys changing room in Porkys.... Oooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!
