Good luck guys, have a great ride. Stay upright, and free of mechanical delays. Bailout options are at Mt Victoria, Blackheath, Katoomba, etc. Hopefully any bailer outers will be on the way back, not on the way there. :D

That also means that you'll have approx 4600m of descents too......... :wink: .


Total respect for the guys tackling this ride; it's a decent drive in a car, let alone on a bike.

Note to stevet-

If someone comes up along side of you tomorrow they just want to chat, they are not trying to beat you.

If someone moves in front of you tomorrow they are just taking a turn, they are not trying to beat you.

Nobody wants to beat you :P

Too right! I'm going in hyper conservative mode. I'll give you a big hug at Jenolan and another one when we get back to the bubbler. :wink: But the chatting is going to be out unless you want to be a hood ornament on a B double.
Yours sincerely

You should all be asleep in bed by now, but I'll post this anyway. I was planning on seeing you at the bubbler (since I'm normally going past there at 5.30 anyway :lol: ) but won't be able to get out in the morning afterall.

Take it easy out there guys and stay safe. I know you'll be looking out for each other, but don't be too 'hard' to turn back if you think you need too. We'll call you soft for a while, but that'll pass after a year or two :wink:

Cheers,
Greg

Finally. At my third attempt. Thanks to the guys for their encouragement without which could not have done it. Had to turn garmin off about 6km from home . Low battery warning, What a mother of a ride. never to be repeated by this old fart!
Hope everyone got home safely.

Well done Sandy, glad you made it home OK.

I managed 325km at 25.8km/h average.

I concur 100% with Sandy, this is a bucket list item never to be repeated (or at least my memory will have to deteriorate significantly)

The climb on the way back up Mt Victoria (after 210km) was the hardest climb I have ever done :!:

Well done too to Don, MTBSteve, Chuck, John, Ehly on being great company and completing an Epic HTFU Ride :shock: (I am sorry you weren't feeling 100% Zozz, it would have been great to have to with us for the rest of the ride)

And lastly I hope MTBSteve and Chuck feel OK and your bikes are OK after stacking on the M4 shoulder.

See you guys on the cycleway in 6-7 months :D
I hope there are wheels to suck in Brisbane :P
