Anyone know if there is a campsite handy for IM France (suitable for motorhomes)?
WW - there aren't any campsites handy at all. we looked into this when we went down in 2008 - the nearest campsite is about 20km out of the city centre and we worked out that to get to the start we'd need to be up at stupid o'clock and have to rely on a taxi turning up at some silly arse hour to get us there. add in all the faff to get back after the race; getting racked the day before, it was too much hassle so we flew and stayed in the Ibis with the rest of the pirates instead.
Mouse- I don't think it's quite got to that level yet. I guess I'm thinking aloud. As Seren says a team of four is roughly the equivalent of a typical long bike (although you'd probably want to ride in smaller intervals) and I can do that much cheaper at a sportif. The solo sounds exciting but you'd really need support.
yes, it does rather look like Summer's been turned off. Probably my fault as I'm running part of the way home tonight.
I assume the cat owners have seen the BBC news 'catwatch' feature today.
In other news I've been sent details of the 24 hour cycle race round Silverstone- I haven't immediately deleted it, but it's rather expensive and I wouldn't fancy driving (anywhere) immediately afterwards. You can do it in teams up to 4 strong...
Although it might be a bit of a fringe pursuit, it's my understanding that you can't get spare parts for the Shimano shifters (as in the lever/actuator bit that sits on the handlebars), but you can for Campag and SRAM.
