that name might already be in use for another (real) event, but i think it nicely describes what I would like to do.

I have a goal to leave acton ferry terminal, ride to stromlo and climb it, cross coppins crossing to black mountain, climb it, then head to ainslee through the city, climb it, and finally return to acton ferry. I'd like to do it under 2 hours. does that sound good to anyone? i have already recruited one friend and we might have a recon session on saturday if anyone else is keen.
Disclaimer: we will both by riding TT bikes with TT shifters, but we promise we wont knock you off :)

maybe 9am this saturday as friday could be a late one... and its nice to ride in the warmth of the day on the weekends anyway!

Gimmie 12 months to get back into it and I'd be in on that ride :)

Used to be a bit of a mountain goat in my racing years and really want to get back into it... however at the moment just driving up a hill hurts my lungs :)
