Thanks Meldy. I could cope with the tutting it was the shoulder barging that was annoying. Admittedly it must have been a pain for the fast folk to have a fat pirate walking in their way after a mile.

I han't seen that one Melds. I'm doing the smaller Longest Day one from Dorney the 15th April (week before Chiltern Dipper?).
At the risk of sounding like I am repeating myself, I am doing that one too, but the smaller version!
Cake - Muffin is a lady, I can confirm this after meeting her the week before....although I obviously didn't look too closely as we were cycling at the time.
True.. I thought of LB last night (no silly not in my dreams) I was in Warrington dropping Sprog 4 off for a train....
19:15 on a Sunday, The place looked shut

Nice one muffin. daft question I throught you where a lady purely from the avertar are you a young lad by any chance?
LMAO Cake!!! Does your dyslexia extend to gender recognition? Muffin is female. Unless I've been kidding myself for the last 23 years .
Sorry to hear your news Joddly. As meldy said.
I've been running an Op recently in our local town where we'eve been deploying a 'sting' bike with a tracker. we lock it up but it is normally taken with the lock cut through within 24hrs! The frustrating thing is that we have caught the thief ( or handler) each time but the courts dont treat pedal cycle theft as a serious crime and they get a slap on the wrist
I've had a flat bit in training at the moment in that I havn't trained for 2 days. just didn't feel like it and felt a bit burnt out. But it's a great day today and I'll get back into it.
70 mile bike followed by 7 mile brick run yesterday. Ow, feckity ouch.
Our 18 year old lodger turned up last night clutching a front wheel and a lock. "Er, ze bike eet 'ave gone." Had locked the bike to bike rack by the front wheel only. With a quick release lever on it. Twat.
Now to explain to the brother in law, from whom my wife had secretly borrowed the bike, (getting me to pick the bike lock) that he only has a wheel left. And a lock. At least it was only a cr4p Raleigh 5 ton old MTB.

half way through lap 1 we dropped Ross off the back, in his defense he only got back from South Africa at 0100 and does only have one leg !
Loved this whole report, Dave. Sounded totally nuts.... a bunch of half-cut, ex-pats charging around the desert on their push-irons. Brilliant write up.
Rest day yesterday after a step up in intensity for me last week. 26 weeks to IM Wales! Turbo tonight, although I'll not try anything like your 2:30 session, Will.... mind boggles!!
Still not able to run due to my ongoing back problem. On hearing that there is a possibility that i may have to withdraw from the Outlaw, my wonderful mum-in-law has offered to pay for physio for me.
I have my first consultation on Thursday morning with a local Sports Physiotherapist. Fingers crossed she can sort my back out.
