I hadn't thought about first aid kit. If someone's got one and doesn't mind bringing it, that'd be great

Thank you to everyone for volunteering to help out on Sunday, thank you to Schmunkee for organising all the admin with OSB

Camping – If you are confirmed for free camping, your name will be on the OSB list at the campsite office, turn up, give your name, there will be nothing to pay (pirate camping area is shown on the map on previous page)

Free swims – For those that have entered the free swim, you need to register at OSB Race HQ (registration tent),  open Friday/Saturday
No Volunteer Registration - I will register for and collect all volunteer items on Saturday, I will also attend the marshals briefing.  No need for feedstation volunteers to register, except for free swims as above)


Sunday –

Timing - Race start is 06.00 I will be leading a convoy from the campsite 05.00 sharp.  We need a core of a dozen to set up and be ready for the first riders due about 08.00
Location - we’re at the same feedstation as last few years (Feedstation 1, about 2 miles after Car Colston on the South Loop) – approx. 15 min drive campsite

Volunteer Briefing - 07.00, I will do a briefing at 07.00 at the feedstation, unless you are coming post swim/or part of day could you aim to arrive before 07.00

Feedstation Parking – No vehicles at the feedstation please, park on the verge (all wheels off the road).  The verge is on the left hand side 1/3 mile before the feedstation (do not obscure the feedstation ahead sign)
Transport - you will have to organise your own transport, arrange lifts, lots of people will be driving, if you aren’t able to arrange anything please come and see me and ill resolve

Lunches/t-shirts/good bag? – I shall collect all the volunteer items on Saturday, these will be available at the feedstation on Sunday

Bacon Butties/Tea/Coffee – I believe T-Pot/Button Mushroom will be providing their usual fantastic support to the volunteers – thank you

Weather - consider the weather and bring water proofs, sun cream as appropriate, last year was very wet and we had some very shivery volunteers

Post Bike – join us at HPP to cheer the runners and final finishers

Any questions please ask here, alternatively I will be at HPP from Friday evening, come and speak to me if you need anything/have any questions.

Agree with many of the comments above, to be strong over half distance you need to be regularly riding 5-6+ hours total a week in my opinion.  Also challenge yourself to ride harder:

Stay in a gear longer before stepping down
Maintain a target pace
Challenge yourself every week or two around a local 25 mile loop

Above all, riding with others who will push you is a big plus.

The times ive had strong half distance rides have been at the peek on IM training, i.e. lots of road miles. 

I do rate spin classes if you work at them, but depends on the class, instructor and how hard you work.  A couple of years ago I attended a great series of classes (great class leader), everyone was up for it and were hard sessions, even did a few double spins (90 mins).
