Re: Westpoint Centre. Exeter Bike Show, 28-29th August

Might well go - if its a sunny weekend, see if I can drag a couple of others up to it seeing as its only up the road....Do you need tickets in advance?

As for recovering from the marathon - if your reffering to the Sahara desert 150 miler, Its been and gone - I tore a ligament in my knee at a two day trial race three weeks before I was due to go out it - so I was forced to cancel, - My entry is transferred to the 2005 race. shit happens.

Just easing back into trianing again now after a 3 month layoff, Im well out of shape at the moment - Ive just entered Coventry Way 40 miler trial race which is the weekend after the Westpoint bike show and then im off out to Cyprus to train in the heat for a fortnight the following week Hopefully.

Ow, and wow! So you get to travel around a bit! I was thinking of the Marathon of Briton.

The tickets can be purchased in advance for £8.50 adults £4 kids or £10 on the day adults £5 kids.

It is open 10am to 5.30. maybe we could go to the double locks for beer and garlic bread!

Oh Yeh the Marathon Of Britian is the first week of the August, II was hoping id be recovered soon enough to get back into training for it, but no way am I fit enough at the moment to consider an entry for it - the MOB is a rather daunting 180 miles - I think it would finish me off- Apart from not being fit enough my knee just isnt strong enough for that sort of mileage since the injury...... Maybe next year.

Where abouts in Exeter is the double locks - that sounds very familier

The Double Locks in by the Canal Bank in Exeter, near Marsh Barton, really lovely pub, fantastic beer and food and you can camp there too!

If all goes well, I may even be riding there or at the very least walking normally.

Got an appointment on Weds and then if everythings ok, They take the pins out, Put me on plaster for 2 weeks and then I'm free. So if all goes to plan

Ofcoruse I bet it wont.
