Durhambiker, one of the best reports ive read for a long time.  Your determination will get you through next time if nothing else will.

So many times as I was reading I was expecting the next sentence to say that youd stopped, yet you kept going.

I DNFd my first long distance, I know it wont hold you back.

Well done and good luck.

Laying Good Foundations - Pre Plan Training

Posted: 30/07/2015 at 08:10

Enter an event at the 31 week point, something to target, could be a half marathon, duathlon, winter sportive and focus on training for that, then have a week off before starting the 30 weeks?

Agreed work on your weaknesses, strength training, core work, flexibility, get out on your bike (more miles = more smiles).

Triathlon tribelts

Ive seen pro's using knicker elastic with numbers stapled to them, maybe that's more stretchy (or they just forgot their tri-belt).

I step in, I think its quicker than fiddling to fasten.

961, I hope you got your special needs bag back.  It was me who spoke to you just before Car Colston.  I took the bag back to transition and was allowed to put it into your post race bag.

Outlaw Bike Feedstation 26 July 2015

Glad to read all the positive feedback and everyone enjoyed themselves.  It really is a big team effort, everyone making contributions in different ways, from sorting mechanicals, holding bikes, volunteering to man far flung marshal points, cooking, mixing drinks etc.  The children excelled in card board box flattening and trash compacting and glad they enjoyed themselves

OSB have previously asked us not to use the ""High 5 £3 per bottle" sign, a few years ago someone else thought it was serious.  On a number of times walking back to the car I saw people chucking at the signs, specifically that one.  I think it should stay, you cant cater for idiots.

A bit more feedback.  I knocked on the door of the house nearest to us to sort of oil the wheels/offer an apology for the noise.  They don't mind the noise but did ask us not to use whistles, apparently in previous years whistles are more of a disturbance.  Fair comment in my opinion, one to remember for next year.

I did a final walk both sides of the feedstation, massive credit to everyone, it was tidier when we left than when we arrived

If anyone has any suggestions or feedback for OSB let me know, ill send them an email later this week.

I have been to race HQ, just to confirm there is no individual registration or briefing for feedstation volunteers.

All volunteer tshirts, mugs, food and drink, wristbands are in the vans. The will be driven to the Hawksworth by OSB. Nothing for us to do apart. From turn up in the morning.

Thanks again.

Just been down to recce the feedstation, could I make a request re parking tomorrow.

250 meters before the feedstation there is a sign "FEED STATION 250 METRES"

Please park all cars off the road on the grass verge from 50 metres before this sign I.e. So cars are not blocking riders from seeing the sign.

I've checked the verge, although the grass is a bit long it's firm and offers the best place to park and room for 20 cars.

Thank you

As per previos message I'll be leaving campsite 05.45 if anyone want to follow me over.
