Knew you couldn't resist taking a bike!

True! Child seat for Bronte? You could collect your car seat!

I'm training heavy by eating lots of meat, cheese and bread.

love the pyrenees...
out of interest - how did you fare with taking bike on plane - did you go for an expensive bike box? or the CTC recommended see through bag and a wish and a prayer...?

Rob - no problems taking bike on plane. I have a bike bag (cheaper than box, though not as sturdy), and use insulation foam piping on all the frame, then lots of bubble wrap on everything else (bars, stem, rear mech etc). I've never had a problem and have done more than 20 flights this way.
However, I do know people who have had disc brake rotors bend in transit. Essentially, the more you are prepared to dismantle your bike, the more secure it is as you can pack things up safely.
