Ha ha.  I see what you mean.

How can I train for swimming? outside ?

I don't get in the lakes until mid-end of May.  Way too cold for me at end of April usually.  I have tried, but 200m was the max, just couldn't breathe or swim properly as limbs were so stiff.  I figured I may as well focus on technique in the pool with a quality session, than 200m freezing my nuts off in a lake.

I have a Boardman Air 9.2.  Absolutely love it, and I am definitely faster on this than my Specialized road bike.

Thanks everyone.  I have contacted Freespeed with a few questions.

Thanks again.  Was planning to get them soon so that my body can get used to the aero position on the turbo.  Off to look for some bargains.

That's helpful Cheerful Dave.  I've had a proper bike fit for my road bike, so looks like I just need to experiment with some bars and will look on ebay and in the sales.  Being clueless, I thought I might need another bike fit to accommodate somewhere between the 2 positions.

Thanks Cougie.  I would hope to be on the bars for 70% of the time, but not sure I could be in that same position for around 6 hours.  Maybe I will find it comfortable though, so who knows.  Not a serious tiafleet, but like doing the endurance stuff. Hoping that by going aero (and of course with training) I will improve my bike times.

I'm looking to get some aero bars fitted onto my bike.  I have no idea where to start.  I know I will need to have a bike fit to accommodate somewhere in between standard bars and using the aero bars.  I will not be on the aero bars all the time for long distance.  Can anyone a) recommend some bars, b) recommend a shop/person that knows their stuff in the Guildford or Surrey area?  Getting frustrated at my indecisiveness, as I just don't know what I'm doing.

Any recommendations for accommodation?  Not camping.  Will drive down on Friday and travel back on Tuesday probably so 4 nights somewhere close by.
