Why wouold the Triathlon god's smite me?

I have managed to loose my number belt and no have to buy another one. I know it is only a small problem, but it is so bloody annoying. I had it only 2 weeks ago, and i know i brought it home with me. Now, the bloody gremlins have moved it and i can't find it...arrrrgh!

Ok rant over, anyone know the best place to pick up a number belt in SE or Central London? There's SBR but they're on the wrong sidfe of town for me - so a last resort...

Are you racing on Saturday or Sunday?

If sunday, then come down to the event village for the great london swim on saturday, I think Tristore are there, so maybe give them a call and ask them to bring one for you to pick up.

If you're racing on saturday then the only think I can think of is possibly an evans store? I think the one on the cut near waterloo sells them - but i'm not certain

Cheers JB, I'm racing sunday but sat is a mega packed day -GAT officer has 'plans' it's like she doesn't understand Tri at all... I'll have a quick look in Evans on the way home, and i'll check the 'expo' when i register sat morning, if not then I'll head to the london swimon my way home.

There's always safety pins. They worked well before belts came along, and worth taking a few just in case.

2010: White Horse Challenge, Dragon Ride, RoW Sprint, IM UK 70.3, Eastnor Castle Middle Distance, IM UK: All boxes ticked
2011: Now to go faster. Then IronMan Wales came along, so the speedwork can wait until 2012

The Evans cycles in canary wharf has them. Not sure how good they are!

You could always make your own! For my first tri, I turned up with a tri suit and no number belt, so just got some string and looped it through the pins I put on the number. Took a bit longer to put on in T1, but better than nothing!

I always have safety pins just in case but don't like putting holes in my tops.

manthatcan - cheers, i have to pass there on the way home so that'll be brilliant. Cheers

Is this a rush to be ready for Hyde Park on sunday?

Yes, i just found that when starting to put my kit together last night my belt had gone missing and it kind of made me panic, what with the plans tomorrow i just didn't think i'd have time. knowing there is something at Canary Wharf i can grab on the way home makes it a lot better.
