Jenolan Caves Super Mega Huge Enormous HTFU Epic!

ok fans of HTFU
Here we have a doozy
Jenolan Caves and return, 300+ km and 4000m climbing.

Meet Point: Bubbler on the m7 cycleway
Time: 5.30am
When: Sat 5th November
Goal: Ride our human powered bicycles to Jenolan Caves and return
Stop Points: When we feel like it
How Fast: Steadish pace
Who can come: If you havent done atleast a 200km ride and survived then this isnt the ride for you

from the bubbler to Jenolan caves its 140km so 280 return. Add whatever distance you need to get to the bubbler (if your soft :wink: you may wish to drive and park your vehicle near by) but then you will not achieve 300km and therefore will stillbe deemed "soft" by your peers :wink: :wink: :lol:

Bail out Points: There will be none, we're going the full distance :D (speak to me personally about bail out options :lol: )

So whos in?

Actually, I am a bit disappointed by the thread title... here I am for 1 second thinking of MTBing through the caves... and by the time the thread opened, my dreams (of 1 second) were shattered.. destroyed like a stalactite crashing to the ground.




Sorry for taking this off track... back to the 300km epic.

I know MTB Steve is keen but he says this ride is too short and he'd prefer to go the long way ;-)

Is there a PRIME on this ride.. if not, I'm not comin.. .. lol..
Thats a crazy ride. 160 is the most i've ridden so I fail the prerequisites already.
Will still try and work on a ride pass but i believe that might be mission impossible.

Have fun fellows !!!!

bad timing for me, but it was something i was going to do as a training ride for sea 2 summit but ran out of time due to seminars.

i will definitely do it after nov 19.

so if anyone wants a slower version you are free to join me :)

Don, No bigger fan of a good HTFU than the writer however I'm concerned you might be a bit too early in my rebuilding stage. See how I go if I do Sunday's Enduro and how I shape up if I can do a ride to other side of Victoria Pass and home before Nov 5th.
Remember 5th Nov is Guy Fawkes day, would prefer not to explode (or implode) like old Guy had in mind in 1605 :lol:

ps legs still sore after Tuesday night's minor exertions :oops:

Chuck, I don't understand? Broken bike? You're taking a huge risk riding a Shimano equipped bike on that sort of ride. :shock:
Look what happened to Keith it didn't last 50 kays and it was dead flat.....You were there! :lol:

You wash out your mouth this instant Mister Ni78ck! No Jenolan Caves ride for you, young man, and don't let me catch you talking like that again! :x :x :x

On a different angle - leaving the sunnyholt ramp for Katoomba and maybe a bit more at 6am saturday if any one wants to join Sandy Notflyingscot and myselfImageImage

Took a run up to Katoomba with Steve this morning. Nice ride and did not hurt quite as much as I was expecting! Bumped into bmxbandito and Dougie at Glenbrook on the way up heading into the woods on the MTB's. Dougie on a Surly Pugsly. Is that really an MTB?? Looks more like beach buggy.

Two points arise from the ride.
1. The road works between Woodford and Wentworth Falls currently provide the "thinnest" edge to ride on that I have experienced in the three years I have been riding this road. Not good at all when trucks have to pass! There are those temporary concrete barriers on your left so absolutely no where to go if you get squeezed.

2. It is already very hot up there for a big day out. Might have left it a bit late for such a serious effort.

Sounds a bit like NFS may be having second thoughts don't you think :wink:
