rumour has it there could be two renegades sans race numbers, gatecrashing the ride, possibly both on retro bikes.

That's the spirit, nothing like kicking the establishment in the testicles. :lol:

Oh & you're not gate crashing, you just may be riding down to the Gold Coast & happen to meet us somewhere (like the start) or you were out for a ride & you ran into us. :o

Or you're just taking advantage of the fact that I donate more than enough money to these charities every year & you're getting some value for my dollar (considering I always lose the receipt at tax time & never claim it). :?

Or you're just upholding the principles of retro riders & kicking the establishment in the testicles (yep that's always the best reason to do anything) :lol:

Hmmm...well that's it. I am canning the ride. Oct 7 long range rainfall forecast just went up to 50-75%.
For the life of me I don't understand why they don't bring the event forward 4 weeks. October av. monthly rainfall is 146% higher than September.

Last year it bucketed the day before and 3 years ago they cancelled and re-scheduled the event (That's my experience with this ride due to my "newbiness" as a cyclist ..... not sure about the previous years but October is well know for it's wet periods yes .... Time will tell :?

pawpaw - worth noting that a lot of rain we get at this time of the year is due to storms. storms predominantly roll in after 2pm and hence the ride wouldn't be affected.

but also agree it should be in September, not October

Damnit. Well, as mentioned above, here's hoping if it does rain it occurs after 2pm like most storms at the moment.

I agree. However, a quick BOM search reveals total rainfall of 13.2mm on October 7 over the decade 2002-2011, with only 2 years (2003 and 2011) recording rainfall at all - 7.8mm and 5.4mm, respectively.
Pack suncream, not a poncho. Besides, it never rains on my birthday parade...

Lol, rain would make this event loads of fun by removing the masses who think carbon dissolves!!

I'll still be riding, rain or sunshine. I've just bought Bolle's new release prescription cycling sunglasses and was hoping to give them a real test on the ride.
