Tried to enter last years but they never replied to my email. To cut a long story short the website said you have to wear the ride jersey which was fine by me, problem being I didn't have one. In defence of the organisers it was a about a week or 2 before the ride but the cut off date to order a jersey was at least a month or two before the ride. Maybe the ride was full, I dont know. My advice, organise early if you want to enter.

I did the ride last year and would recommend it. Great riding country and most enjoyable.

Wearing the jersey was only a recommendation, most didn't have them.
I think it was poor planning to expect people to wear the jersey but cutoff orders for jerseys 6 weeks prior to the event. That cutoff date was not well flagged on the website either.
I signed up a month before the event, intending to buy a jersey, only to find out half way through the entry process that I'd missed out. I'd like to see stats on what percentage of entries happened in the that last 6 weeks!

In any event, I'll be back this year to have a crack. Getting ready for this and other early rides like Kinglake in October are my motivation to keep up the miles over winter!
