Hi - Anyone else on the flight CX252 out of Heathrow on 22 March? Only started my training on Monday - also due to terrible weather in Northern Ireland!

Hi, im flying from Heathrow on 22nd march. This is my first holiday ever on my own and im pretty nervous to be honest. I dont have any tickets or flight details yet though, when do you get these?

Only been on the bike for the past 4 weeks, commuting to work and back, legs are taking a pounding but its getting much easier. This you first time with Exodus Bangor? Really dont know what to expect from all of this, pretty excited though :)

Hi Simon - Nervous and excited too!  You're 4 weeks ahead of me on the training  so you're doing ok.  Have done a few charity treks on my own in the past  - nothing to worry about!  I have just received my e ticket and final instructions - so check your emails!  Maybe see you in Heathrow - Cathay Pacific flight?

Well, i did check the emails and yes i have the instructions. Not on the same flight though :( going on MH003 which looks like Malaysia Airlines. Departs 10.50am on the 22/3.

 Never done anything like this before and really just dont know what happens, so yeah pretty nervous!! Reading the reviews on the site the whole thing seems amazing, for me personaly the cycling is going to be a bit of a challenge but im more than up for it. Just hoping that what im doing on the bike now is going to help me, putting in about 8 miles a day commuting. Going out Saturday for a 16 mile run and increase it every weekend until we go. Im not sure im doing enough ....   any tips???

Planning something similar - but would advise a couple of back to back longer rides - Saturday and Sunday.  Used to do a lot of cycling many years ago and the key is building up to maybe a 40 mile sat and 20/30 mile on the sun by the weekend before we go -or more if you want but getting 40/50 miles once under your belt is probably enough for the 100km day-at least that's my plan.  I'm counting on getting fitter as we go but won't be too proud about hopping on the support bus if I need to.  Looks like there's plenty of breaks each day so should be fine.  I'm counting on it being moderate as described but then again there is the heat factor lol!!!!

Good stuff! I will get to do a couple of longer rides but work is a very uncertain factor for me. I dont alwys get weekends off, maybe 1 day a week, i seem to live at the damn place but hey ho. Yes there is always the support bus but im so determind to use it as little as possible ... he says. Im glad im at least going in the right direction and i really thank you for that :) I live in Kent and the weather has been hideous latey so have been battling the wind and the rain wearing lots of layers but it hasnt put me off, just keep peddling on :)

Hi we are booked on the trip on 8th March. Training been ok ish considering the weather and we work full time. I'm just pleased we live in a hilly area. From what I gather the first two days biking are hard due to the heat. I know someone who has actually done this trip and had an amazing time. We cannot wait.
