James, did you do the 100 or 60?

I managed to do the 100 - despite not having best preparation - in 3:40 which was surprising. it was handy having a bigger group than last year, made sure i didn't finish behind the sag wagon :)

Cheers

I did the 60. Not nearly enough preparation but I managed to keep up with the 9 year old girl for most of the ride!

Ran out of puff on access 9 and then broke a couple of spokes on the hill just before the quarry, 4km or so from the uni) so average ended up being less than I wanted. GPS tracking puts it at 20.5kmh, but there were stops in that, cycle computer has a moving average of 23ish.

If you were there for the random draws, my Wife and I were the ones called up by Pete, who apparently went to Europe for our honeymoon.

No i bailed before the draws unfortunately. Ahhh Access 9 - it's a struggle, the only good things about it is the other side. One of the blokes in the 100 also did some spokes at the base of 9 (maybe he stopped and kicked them to avoid it???). my garmin link http://connect.garmin.com/player/102936247
