Bike Hire

Posted: Today at 12:31

I am considering a last minute entry to Mallorca IM in Sept with a friend who already has entry, flights and accommodation.  After the faff of bike shipping and bike boxes in Lanza that probably contributed to my mechanical I am considering hiring a bike for the race.  We are out there for only three days due to work commitments so not a huge amount of time that I want to faff about rebuilding bikes and making sure everything is A1.  So has anyone hired a bike for Mallorca previously and can anyone make any recommendations for places that hire etc?

This is purely aspirational, if its not possible then I will bite the bullet and ship my bike blah blah blah.

Ye I dropped a comment in the site issues forum and then it appeared retrospectively although it does not show up next to my name until the comment is posted...

On to other issues, did anyone do the old form Challenge Henley and last years, is Weymouth a better venue in terms of infrastructure than the old event?

Last minute entry I am jumping on board as it is fairly local.  Will confirm after pay day and see you there.  Going to do the half as it's a bit close to Copenhagen to crank out the full distance...

silly question, how do I get a pirate tag Gas Man?

Honestly if there is some truly screwed up relay team that required pacing so that you could do all three legs with different teams then I am up for it.  Failing that solo for 2016 it is.

Ok been looking at this for a month now and the idea won't go away which is usually a worrying sign, work commitments right now mean I don't know if it will be 2016 or 2017.

I think I can make it into pen D but probably E more likely.  anyway the whole thing looks awesome any advice for a Comrads first timer???

Wow I really put the cat amongst the pigeons with that one.  Ok I would really like a looser fitting running type top as for the longer distance races and certainly the hotter ones just a bit of air flow is really nice and I quite like rocking the kit in full for a finish.  I can certainly see swim specific kit (hats), bike specific kit (tops, jackets, etc) and given that the run is kind of a big part of the race why not a running top?  

Anyway I am going to flank around the soil searching stuff here, if ther is the option for a running top great please sign me up for one, if not then that's cool no worries.  See you all at Outlaw.
