Thanks Andy

Any idea on sizing for these - are they generous for the stated size or tight?

I have a 38" chest and the Force GB Medium i have is a snug fit, so i've gone for a Large this time

In all honesty I've no idea! I suppose it depends on your height and build. From what I can see on the order page there's 14 different sizes in all including 6 ladies sizes. Clicking on the, "sizing guide" on the order page might offer some ideas!

I'm a 40" chest, and my L 2013 LEL jersey is still tight (I keep meaning to lose weight), but the XL mille cymru 2014 one is just right, so I will be ordering XL when I get round to it. Design looks good, Andy!

Assuming the airbeds are the ones bought for LEL and now available to organisers, they also come with rough blankets. I find a silk sleeping bag liner a useful addition.

AFAIK Andy no longer has any blankets for the beds. Andy, if you need to borrow any blankets you need to let me know well in advance, preferably in the next week or two. I won't be able to sort you a couple of days before the event like last time, or even a week or two before.

Please let there be blankets.

I've ordered xl, expecting it to be the same size as the mille cymru one, and I assumed we'd be picking them up at the start.

I thought we'd ordered direct from Force GB (who seem to be Stag Sports Ltd on the Paypal receipt) and thus would be sent to our home address.

I ordered on 5th May.

The same, payment from me went through on the 29th of April. I'll ring them tomorrow. :facepalm:

The deadline for ordering jerseys is Sunday 05 June 2016. Jerseys will then be posted out to riders direct from the supplier by 1st class post on or around 25th June 2016, in order to arrive in time for the event.

So planning equipment and wondering (Andy) whether there would be opportunities to charge usb lights at the central control? If you provide a bunch of multi plug extensions we could plug in lights, Garmins, cameras etc

Taken delivery of my super low gears. I will be pushing 26x30 up the steepest slopes. Left hand changer will be a bar end.

If I were there, I'd be cheering you on.... but from a very long way behind.... probably having failed to push my 22x34 up them!

I'll be running a 40/25*11/28 although I may swap this for an 11/32.

If this is an edition of that exciting series "Gear Chat"

I will either be doing 30-40-50 x 12-30 on 25mm tyres or 34-50 x 11-32 on 30mm tyres.  It's not clear which, yet

There is unlikely to be anything steep on this ride.  Andy always finds the nice easy gradients.

So, I suspect that I will use a 53/42 and a 13-21 block.

Four days in Amsterdam may have made me a little confused and lacking in reasoning skills.

Fuck it. I will bring fixed and gear the fuck up. Whatever Jonah is running, I will add 10 inches.

Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

Will my Shiv be suitable for this? Is my 58T big enough or should I get that 62T I've been missing all my life?

You'd be glad to have 62 teeth on the descents...

"Andy, Any news on bag drop requirements for event"

Most people just drop off a small rack-sack at the start with a change of cycling gear in it. However, any drop-bag must not contain any liquids; sharp objects; glass bottles or anything that requires refrigeration, as well as anything that maybe fragile or breakable.
