Blue sky here in Haverfordwest (only a matter of miles from Tenby) and sun is shining. Forecast has been for rain here a lot lately but mostly had sunshine instead

Very glad to report that my kit arrived today so will head home after work and see if I can fit into it after all the excessive food consumption over Xmas.

many, many thanks to The Kit Fairy for all your hard work.

I would be interested in riding the course whenever people make it down and as I only live a few miles from the route i can make most weekends. If agnyone needs tents, camping gear or even somewhere to stay just let me know

My typing skills are worse than my cycling ! Cassette is 12-26T

Sorry to hijack this thread but it seems to be a good place to ask this question in view of the discussion above.

my current bike has a 52/39 standard double chainset with 52/38T cassette. I am struggling on some of the hills and although my priority is to reduce a few lbs from my waistline I am wondering what difference difference gearing would make. 

Would it be sensible (and relatively easy) to change the cassette and / or chainset to make it easier to tackle the hills. 

Current bike is Carrera TDF and will be looking to upgrade next year but want to make the best of this one for the time being. I don't want to spend too much so would it be money well spend changing cassette and / or chai set.

£90 for the three (or £30 each) not sure if there is a booking fee on top.

much cheaper than Ironman at almost £400.

any mentors out there fancy helping me out. I have got a very busy year planned for 2014 and would love to have someone who can offer a little help and advice occasionally. 

I am already entered in Outlaw half and full and have a number of other races I am about to enter. I am sure most people will think I am mad for the number of races I am considering but it's not supposed to be easy as it's a challenge and will be raising money for some very worthwhile causes. 

If anyone thinks they can help please email me. My email is tattooedwelshman @ yahoo . Co . Uk but obviously without the spaces

Many thanks


Pirate outing to Bala 2014

just checked race info and looks like I can register on the Sunday morning so although I will try to get the Saturday off work it's not a disaster if I don't as I did not want to enter if I was unable to get to registration. That's a long winded and very poorly written  way of saying I'm in
