ooh, getting close now. very excited :D :D :D


p.s those of you with garmins make sure you have the backlight OFF. It wont have any chance of making the distance with the backlight on. Just ask Rainer who lost his 300km lithgow trip becuase of it :lol: :lol: :lol:

meeting 5.30am sat 5th Nov at "the bubbler" on the m7 cycleway. this is near the m7 offices which is just after the M4 heading towards the prestons end.
If you believe you can make it then you are welcome. Its a long way and no idea if we outselves can make the distance, but were determined to give it a crack

Enjoy the hurt guys and I hope you're all safe and successful. Think I'll sleep in and do a leisurely 60km on the M7 :-) Good luck!

The closest train station is Rooty Hill, from the train station it is only 3km to the M4/M7 intersection (where we plan to exit the M7 onto the M4 towards Penrith)
