Then on to register and hope all paper work in order
And they're off ....
The finish - 150 km in 4hrs16m in 34 degree heat - no idea how any of the competitors managed to finish in such conditions and no water given out at the end but what an experience - definitely a baptism of fire for a race novice like Wayne up against some of the fittest amateurs on the planet - lots of high speed crashes too not for the faint hearted!
We then had a couple of days to explore the city of Poznan - a beautiful city with lots going for it - can definitely recommend it has a place to visit - very strange having no binoculars with us but still managed a list of 32 birds!!
The museum of the 1956 uprising
Lots of fresh lemonade to combat the 34 degrees
The celebration and calorie uptake begins ..
Double tequila frozen raspberry cocktail - very nice
A trip to Citadel Park 10,000 acres of woods, meadows, sculptures and rose gardens - right on the edge of the city - never seen interpretive boards like these in children play areas in the uk
Lots of Fire Bugs
A visit to the National Museum to see Poland's only Claude Monet
