Petit Oppy - Any Girls interested?

Postby Parker » Tue Oct 23, 2012 12:34 pm

Hi Girls (or nice boys)

I'm wondering if any girls would be interested in forming a team to complete the Petit Oppy as listed on the Audax calender for Saturday Mar 16th 2013.

It's set for a minimum of 180km in 24 hours, the spirit of Audax is that you ride as far as you can and the idea not that you stop at 180 but see if you can go beyond.

We would be as strong as our slowest rider - a real empahsis on team and helping each other along.

Cheers
Rowena

P.S. don't want to respond here? email me at [email protected]

There was a full womens team on the last oppy. They don't come on BNA tho best bet is to turn up to an Audax event and find them

I also am aware that there are a lot of WA women on these forums and perhaps this thread might encourage other women to participate in Audax events.

If I could ride for more than 20km without turning into a wheezing, sweaty mess I would be in. Maybe I can start training for the one in 2014!

:D

I've just forwarded this to someone who was also talking about a ladies team, there were mumblings about being maybe 3 riders interested, looking for a 4th. But I'll let her sort that out.

I currently have interest from 3 interested parties (4 including myself and 1 man).

I am thinking it may be possible to form two teams - a sort of beginers team to do the 180km (petit) and a more advanced team to do the 360km (Opperman All day Trial)

So that being said, if you're a women in WA and think you can't make it to 180km, ride a road bike and are dreaming that you can... then you should email me and we'll get you to 180km.

Anyone else? I now have 6 people who are wanting to do the 360km, so it would be great to have some more people come on board and then we could have two 360km team :)

I now have 7 people interested in the 360km Oppy, so I'm asking if ANYONE else is interested (perhaps another three), any gender is fine.

I'm now at about 8 riders, trying to con a chick into doing the 360km over the 180km, on the basis that she's allowed to ditch her team after 200km (so that means we would have 9), I will ride with people all week, to get their confidence up, as long as there is a bakery, I'm happy to ride my bike on adventures!!!!

So I need one more person.... is that you?

I would be interested in the 180km, depending on how hilly it is.

It's going to be a flat route most likely. Maybe some little bumps tho.

Hi all,

Just bringing this thread back from the dead as it is time (actually a few days past) to register your team and ride plans with the organiser. If you haven't done this already then please contact Tony Gillespie ASAP, details available via the online ride calander on the Audax website: http://audax.org.au/public/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=2

See you on Sunday the 17th (if I survive it :wink: )
