Weather forecast for Sunday is still the same as before so is going to suite most riders, SSE breeze between 5-10 knts with a min of 15 and a max of 28. Very isolated chance of a shower so I suspect there will be some cloud cover around.

Registered for the Ipswich ride last night and i'll use the mtb as it might be wet, considering the weather today where there were
completely clear skies at 8 am, then it fully clouded over by 9.30 & it rained at 10. I am looking forward to to seeing how fast i can
whip through it, so i can have some sort of idea if i'm ready to do some longer rides later on, as i doubt i'd be able to average more
than 25 kph for the 100km and the last thing i'd want to do is end up in the sag wagon. Since i've been able to do 40+ kph on the
flats on the way to/from work the 50 km ride should be fine for me to do at this stage. Looking to do a ride from my place to Sandgate
& back via the Gateway Bridge (about 70km? rtn) before winter kicks in, so this ride will be a good test of if i have the legs for that yet.

I might have to seriously consider upping my goal km for the year as i'm keeping ahead of the triangle atm...

So what is everyone packing on them for the ride?

I was thinking -

Spare tube
Multi tool
Pump
Credit card and $20 cash
Sunscreen
Food - 1x banana, 2 energy bars, 2 pieces of fruit cake and 2 satuals of enduca to mix in 1 bottle
2 bottles - 1 water 1 endura mix

What's your thoughts guys?

I'm aiming for 100ks at 30kph.

Looks good. Only thing is I wasn't going to bother too much with the food (other than a hearty breakfast) as I thought they were going to provide food at the rest stops?

EDIT: Talked to someone who went last year and they did supply food. Hot cross buns, bananas, gatorade... :)

I was going to go with pump, the bare essential tools, 2 spare tubes (I know, I'm an optimist :wink: ), a muesli bar, a few Murray Mints, a bottle of water and a bottle of lime sports cordial. Then I'm only doing the 100km. Can't imagine they'll supply bananas though, $12.99 per kilo in Woolies today.

Wishing all a good ride tomorrow.

Since i 'haven't registered yet due to living in Toowoomba and raining on and off, what time would you recommend me being there in the morning for the 100ks? Starts at 6.30am, i was thinking about 5.50am?

Enough time?

Heading off, looks to be perfect weather with a tail wind to finish off with. Serious question, why does breakfast cereal have to be have the noisy type of plastic that wakes everybody up?

I'm hoping the multi tool has some tyre levers - otherwise you are in strife if you have to change a tyre and don't have anyone stop and help. For long rides (>100kms or when I am "out of town") I always carry mobile phone and cash, 2 tubes, multitool inc 2 tyre levers, CO2 cylinders, pump (takes CO2 and pumps), a tyre "boot" (something to stick on the inside of the tyre should it get cut badly - especially on a sidewall - to cover the hole). Depending on how prepared you want to be a hidden chain link (a KMC) isn't a bad idea (weighs next to 0), a bit of rag (to wipe hands) and I also have a tiny first aid kit and a few Nurofen (headache tabs) - but I hope I never have to use the first aid kit.

Good like with the ride mate - let me know how you went and I have the tyres for you.

Nice work Schurms.
Garmin connect not playing the game at the moment, but i know i crossed the line for the 100km at 4:00:26 so my moving time will be below 4hrs and i'm wrapped with that.
I did hear a bloke saying his bunch did the 168 in tick over 5hrs - averaged 34km/hr - you involved in that Comedian?
great day, glad the headwinds turned into tailwinds, good job by the volunteers too.

Cheers

Very happy with my result 170km in 6hrs 08mins at a smidgen under 28 kph average. Considering I started cramping on Mt Alford glad I could finish the event. Although the dirty dozen almost finished me. :mrgreen:

Well... I'm alive I think. I'm not entirely sure!

I did the 170 in 6:21 but I it was on the iphone and I did keep forgetting to turn it off at stops.. I don't know how good it's stop detection is. Either way I got in just before 1:30 with stops.

Anyway, the hills were mega. It was like the front of Mount Cootha once (Mt Alfred) and about 30 Kedron Brook Roads :shock: I had trouble with my feet again. They were on fire at various points from about 90 and the last 20 were very difficult. I'm going to have a look into that.

One thing I'll take away from it was it was really tough when you were essentially solo. Having a bunch would have made it a lot easier. We did pick up bunches from time to time, but they would be either too slow, too fast, or they would dissipate on their own when there was a change in terrain. The other thing I learnt too is having some one to chat too really makes the miles pass, but that only happened from time to time. :) The bike went well although the chain did pop off the little ring once. :( I was surprised how few flats there were... maybe the lack of glass on rural roads?

Anyway, quite an experience and quite a challenge. :)

@Brades68... well done mate. I'm sorry I missed you! :)

Finished the 170k at 1pm on the dot. A double-H day (hills & headwinds).

I was also very surprised to see so few flats in comparison to the BNE2GC. Was it really the lack of glass, or is there something else at play?

Well, what a ride to do my first century ride on...the hills and the headwind which picked up early on made it a challenge :shock:

I'm having trouble connecting to Garmin this afternoon, so I'm not too sure of my stats BUT I did make it make in under 5 hours, and I think that my moving time was under 4h 30 mins, so I am very happy with that given the terrain, conditions of the roads and wind!

Waved off my hubby at 6am and was almost going to pull the pin on riding as I have a bad case of nerves, but I found a couple of other ladies who'd waved off their partners and were waiting for the 100k ride to start...started chatting and ended up riding the whole way with one of them, which made it a little easier! She had done the ride before so warning me about pacing myself up the Mt.

Glad to have done the ride, not sure that I'd be keen to do the 160 ride.

Can I just say I reckon anyone that completed either the 100 or the 170 today is a total hero - no matter how long it took. That is a way harder ride than the Bris-GC IMHO :mrgreen:
