Travel - done! Now for the bike...
Good news - Eurostar are in and supportive!
Next challenge is the bike. I've been tipped off about Bamboo Bikes, which look really exciting. Because bamboo inverts the normal tree structure, and is hard on the outside, empty on the inside, it's perfect for making bikes - it's basically a naturally occurring bike frame. Pic above is from their site; they even look good. I'm going to ask them to lend a bike, for a bit of training time and for the race, and potentially look to auction it afterwards... I'm pretty standard size for a triathlete, so something should be possible I'd hope, especially if we can get some good PR going... We'll see!
