Do they do airport<->hotel transfers only? Or will you be sending your bike with them too?
If the former, I'd be keen to know what they quote you if you don't mind?


It's on my list this week - will let you know!

I am just about to conclude with Nirvana - and they use Shipmytribike for bike transfers.

I'm out Stansted/Bologna early Weds, Hotel Nettuno, back Monday.

Hassle getting the quote out of them - send email, if you ring they are liable to take details, say they will call you back and when you ring in a week not having heard anything they will have no details. This happened twice before I tried email...

I'll be on my jack until Friday when the OH arrives until Sunday.

Cheers. I actually used their online chat and spoke to a very helpful guy called Ollie.
Received a quote for airport transfers only and it's pretty competitive. Price fluctuates dependent on how many in your group but looks like it could be a good option for me.

General Entry has sold out.

Just paid my 200 deposit to Nirvana, which is fine as I want to use them anyway.

#@?# I've done it now.

Game on.

First one....

What do we think the chances of this been a non wetsuit swim are?
I know we are a few weeks away but the temperature there is scorchio...

I wondered this and there is a website with sea temperatures over the years.

https://www.seatemperature.org/europe/italy/cervia.htm

On a positive note those temperatures are from the surface so the dipped temperatures will be cooler Smile

From the latest IM 2017 WTC Rules:

Section 4.02 WETSUIT RULES
(a) For age-group athletes, wetsuits may be worn in water temperature up to and including 24.5 degrees C/76.1 degrees F

My guess is wetsuits allowed! Booties definitely not!
