Bike is on its way, being shipped with Nirvana.  That means I have a bike box to borrow if you want, Trogs.  Packing the wetsuit but suspect I won't be needing it.

Many thanks Dave. I was out at my lovely LBS hiring one of theirs when you posted.  Benefits of being a regular customer meant they gave me a good deal. It's now all packed up and ready to go - except for the need to open and check that assorted bits (tri bars/skewers/bottles etc) are in there several times between now and Tuesday evening.

Hopefully getting all the pre-race hiccups out of the way now. 

Got bike box out yesterday to check it fits in car of friend who's kindly taking me to the airport on Wednesday; it does, phew.  Tried to open it and couldn't. One of the combination lock dials is jammed so lock would release.  Much swearing followed by gentle application of crow bar and I got the box open but now it either wont close properly again or closes and need crow bar to open it again.  Fortunately my lovely LBS has a box I can hire for a fairly reasonable rate so that's sorted.

This morning I had a little sprint tri. Switched on Garmin and it promptly froze on the start up screen and, despite pressing all imaginably combination of buttons, I couldn't clear it.  No biggie, just a bit annoying.  Had a good swim, then 1 mile into the bike I picked up a piece of glass in my rear tyre so wasted about 14mins sorting that.  All good practice I suppose and better today than next week.

Fingers crossed that's my 3 episodes of 'bad luck' sorted
