Where's the profile on BV?! Irritating! :evil: Is it not full yet? A bit expensive the registration, my European standard coming out here.



Edit: found the profile. :mrgreen: Not going, done the AAC. 8)

I would love to but I am stuck in lousy ol' Perth :cry:

In Perth, we don't really have hills. Well, not like those anyway.

Its linked from the course details page. Prolly don't want to scare people off :shock:
I'd rather do the ACE. Don't like the idea of a downhill start from Falls and even less an uphill finish up back of Falls

Perth's most challenging ride is the 5 dams challenge... http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/BW ... -Challenge

Load the map and click on "Elevation Profile" under "Show". It's a bit a joke really. Maxing out at about 350m. Total climbing is only 1872m. I wonder how much climbing there is in 3 peaks for comparison.

I'd estimate about 4500m.
Hotham and Dinner Plain was about 2400m for a round trip. Then add Falls and Tawonga Gap

Yes, that'll be very tough, doing 10-15% for the first 2kms, after 200kms in your legs including climbing Hotham :( ! I can assure you it was damned hard on the ACE.

Were you the person I saw with a big saddle bag and a handlebar bag, paused on the side of the road having a snack, 2 - 3 km before the top of Hotham?
