Ask Duncan Hough for a bike fit place, if you're a BCT member!

NT - itchy ass? Get some 2XU or Assos shorts lad. You shouldn't need a saddle cover, either? I've only just bought my chamois cream for this season, too. I've done 3*80 mile rides, a century and a double metric century with Nivea and Vaseline up to now. Giordana shorts. Fine. 2XU trishorts are better, though.

What's a double metic century?

Is that 200k?

wher can I go for a bike fit in west or east mids?


Another option is bike dynamics at Leamington Spa (West Mids). I had mine done there in Jan Feb time and Mike was very good.


+1 for Mike @ http://www.bikedynamics.co.uk/

Cool

Thats more like it ......

56mile ride 3hr 10min At 80% max HR followed by
6.8 mile run 58 min At 85% max HR

But more important felt good and got my nutrition right (well better) than sun. Raised my bars 5mm and felt good with no pain !!!!!

First visit to HPP today. Now that I've entered the relay with Mr KP, we thought we'd head down for a recce. MrKP cycled 70+ miles on the bike route while I ran about 19 miles of the run. Really pleased with that as I only started training properly again towards the end of May, having been ill for the whole of March and April. Great that the run is traffic-free. The swim start is going to be SPECTACULAR! Apart from all the goose-sh1t!!

Anyone completed a bike recce of the bike route? If so, did anyone have a Garmin file I could look at (or send me a Garmin connect link)? This is to understand the profile and estimated meters we will all have to climb on the outlaw.


Here's one on Map my ride - this is the whole route minus the lap round the lake I think.

http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-kingdom/nottingham/656126474946045730

This shows 1814ft of climbing across the 112m and I think you can download a GPX if required.


Thanks Tim - thats a shock only 553m of climbing over 108miles. My average ride at the moment for 71miles is 1300m. Perhaps I should start picking flatter bike routes. Hard as I live in the Surrey hills.


Hate to spoil your delight too much, but by my reckoning there's a bit more climbing than that - we went out a couple of weekends ago and just did the the in/out and one and a bit loops, totalling 60 miles - 2350ft of ascent according to my Garmin. Obviously not completely accurate as GPS thingies aren't always great at working out altitude, but I think 553m is a little on the low-side. Still not exactly hilly though, so no need to worry too much.

That reads as though the reason you can't see your hand in front of you is because of the amount of weed! Twisted Evil

I'll bring a machete. Wink

5 hr 15 ride done yesterday from my house taking in the loop from Lowdham, pouring rain for the last 3 hrs! Crying or Very sad Very wet and cold at the end and took a while to warm the bones. Covered about 90 miles.

I suffer in the undercarriage area too, going to try an ISM seat I think.

Also not sure what to wear on race day. Wore a trisuit for my other IM but thinking of going for a 2 piece (if I can scrape the money together). Anyone recommend a good one, was thinking about skinfit.

Not long now.

I have heard from several sources that something is going to be done about the road from Radcliffe back to HPP.


Has anyone got an update on this? I guess we can recce it on Friday 16th.

I think the two options were HPP Hall letting us go through their grounds instead of the track, or carpeting/boarding the track.

I guess when the imminent info pack comes out, we'll know more!!

TBH, it's the first 111 miles I'm more worried about than the track at the end Wink
