Ironman Vichy 2015

Another recommendation from here - I did it in 2013.  Lovely town to spend a few days in, well-organised & had the feeling of a small race although that might slip now that M dot have taken over.

We went by train which was easy enough & there are direct ones (or there were) from Lyon.

Most (if not all) races in France will ask for something but as long as there is a stamp from some sort of health place & a signature I don't think they check too much.  I also read a while ago about Italy asking for something similar but haven't raced over there so don't know how fussy they will be.

Panniers.  Work clothes don't get creased & puts the weight on the bike not the back.  Can't speak for your lockers at the gym but mine are fine.

Leave the shoes (run & work shoes) at work if you can to save space.

I have a turbo-related question.  I plan to buy a spare wheel for turbo but to swap it between 2 10-speed bikes with different cassette ratios.

Does it matter if I switch the wheel between the 2 bikes given that I won't be changing gears very often?

Abingdon Marathon 2014

Well done to the organisers - a few things might be nice to improve (narrow paths & I'm glad we didn't get any rain as that off-road stuff could have been tricky) but overall it was a good race.

Good to see Mick & Phil supporting today (dad wheeling his son in a wheelchair) & nice to chat to runners all the way around without anyone zoning out with their headphones.

Nice report IGIT - hope the event continues to attract more pirates next year.

Congrats on finishing but how did you add 0.4m to that swim?!

I was vaguely thinking of staying in West Bridgford but I don’t know the Nottingham area at all.  Google maps seems to indicate that the Premier Inn is around 2.5m from the race HQ which should be OK for those of us without cars.

Presumably there’s already a bit of demand for this though as the Sat night is coming up as £98.

Couldn't be bothered with the faff of IM Austria so have entered this.  Sigh.
