26th May, 100 miles?

Got this down in my diary for end of May.....anyone else?

It's a couple of weeks after the Belach beag, and the same day as the Skye sportive, but I thought I'd do this one rather than driving to the west coast twice in a month?

Good bike work for the Triathlon brigade?

Yep i was going to do that. the following day is of course the cyclefest day when we have al our youth races at Alford, so you had better not be too tired. I think DM said there was something else on that weekend when he wimped out of this ride.
May I remind you of that scene

It's the Duathlon thingy.....at Braemar?

I'm planning to work on the running and swimming bit in the few days before the Tri in Spain....

.....training plan is pretty centred around forgetting I've entered a swim/bike/run thingy... 8-)

;) Time will tell on that Mr Rowe -

As long as you get the beer in for me at the finish – mind you don’t order it until you see me – wouldn’t want it to get too warm 8-)

PT is going great – wish I had done it years ago :)

I reckon you'll be the one waiting at the line with a beer Dave :?: Alan might be there first, but with all his cash tied up in that new speed missile, I reckon we're going to have to get the round in for him ;)
