Thanks, dmwill. I got an eight year old in the mix, she will be knackered and I do not want to leave the kids alone whilst I cycle back myself. Guess I give it a miss this year .... unfortunate

Figured that be the most direct and flattest route.

The Start is within 2km of both Karrakatta and Shenton Park Stations. The finish is within 2km ofLeederville, Perth and City West Stations.
The Historical Cycle Club is fielding two teams and a judge for best vintage bike this year. I'm part of the Hysterical Cycle Club team along with HH and a couple of others. See you there 8)

Will be taking the mountain bike. Of all my bikes, it's the one I have the most fun on. Haven't been on it for a few months either, so looking forward to it!

Looking forward to it.

For a change I will have other unicyclists (2) to keep me company. However we will be upstaged by Michael Jackson on a penny farthing.

Anyone doing it on a pogo stick?

A terrific day. Thank you Toby, we appreciate your hard work to get the event up and going again. Great news that we may have a 2015 version. Even managed to snag a prize! Stensational!! :D

Thanks Toby. Excellent. Thanks also to those volunteers and sponsors and other unsung heroes.

I'll be back next year for more of the same.

Brilliant day.

We (Hysterical Cycle Club) were so busy enjoying the ride around Herdsman Lake that we completely forgot to get the Settlers Cottage clues.

Great to see forumites metalrideroz and ColinOldnCranky there. Saw Gazman on the podium, nice wheels! (almost as lound as the shirt and shorts :D ) Missed you jaseyjase, what wheels were you on?

I was piloting my canary yellow 50's Rotrax... which managed to flat it's back tyre near Dodd St. A spare tube was to hand. And tyre levers, but you get so used to riding bikes with quick release don't you... yep, no spanner. Team-mate Cameron went doorknocking and came back with a loaner!

Toby, congrats on year two of a great event. What can WA BNA'ers do to make it bigger & better in '15?

i was on a 1988 matte black cannondale SS, with two other blokes on carbon roadies (giant and merida) red singlets.

think i saw Ben (pravda?) followed his group for the first bit, then ran into them a few times more, probably shouldve said gday..sorry mate!

And of course colin! didnt say gday either though :oops:

we finished the 31kms pretty early, family commitments meant we didnt stick around for the presso :cry:

lets see those pics peoples!

I was the only adult size person on a BMX. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing. Will bring a vintage racer if it's run again next year.

Yup I was there. Were you the three blokes we cruised along with near Cambridge St Jase?

There was 7 in our group, mainly on cx bikes.

We finished eay too. Got to the second last clue at 915 so we stopped for more coffee.

I reckon it'd be good to have a slightly longer long course next year cos I think there were a few people in the same boat.

yeh, that was us. Think we ran into you boys at subi as well

First time of us, and we kept on leaving the route to go to the other route clues not realising they wernt meant for us! Pretty much why we kept losing you guys...hahah . i only realised after we had finished that we didnt need to go those clue stops! hahah

agree with a longer route/more clues/questions would be good, opportunity for bigger and better next year!

We, too, finished early. Stopped for coffee , got amongst the St Patty's crowd and cuised to the end point. I agree, that an improvement, would be more questions as we knew the area and could just go from one point to the next.

It needs to be remembered, however, that it is not a race, it is an exercise which tries to cater for all types and ages of cyclists and include some. I think it did that.

The feedback last year was that there were too many questions so Toby must have modified the course to suit.

Maybe we all need to volunteer to assist with next year's planning.

Our little guy arrived early but then I mixed up dates and missed out on it anyway, maybe next year.

Spewin' I missed it.
