Maybe make the Rides in bold so if there is any replies they will stand out!

7am is a bit early for me on a public hol! :o Unless Im already on the Rd to Launnie! If so, you should consider riding with part of the way.

sorry Robrollin, :oops:

"Unless Im already on the Rd to Launnie! If so, you should consider riding with part of the way."

If we were to ride part way with you, ie 1:30 hours one way up the highway and return, we would not be suited for your pace to get to Launceston...200+kms, my mate puts the gas on and i would not like to jeopardize the pace for your epic ride.

I plan on avg between 27-30km/h for the entire ride, other than the three climbs, but I will avg between 28-34kmh/r between Campbelltown and Launceston knowing that road quite well. Find out tonight if Im going ahead.

I most likely will not be riding on Saturday due to alcohol consumption at the Tri dinner. We'll see though!

I'll pass on Sunday's ride to Dome and Tri groups and see what response we get.

Hi Barry, my Sundays are often taken up with racing at the vets club. This Sunday is "Hell of the South" down at Cygnet. Anyone interested in more details of vets club events should google "STVCC" for the club site.
