Looks like the Early Bird registration opens today! I'm hoping to get up there this year and am hoping for better weather so I can actually do the ride!

Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill. :mrgreen:

Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day. :shock: :lol:

I expect I'll be riding back again this year. Pretty cruisy, just have to keep the fluids up and fill up the bottles whenever you get a chance so you don't get caught short on the way back.

Ditto. B2GC11-115. Riding back is the plan. Just got to spend the next three months training and getting my fitness back. And dropping the extra 7 kilos I'm carrying just now. I have to outrun Comedian, just this once...

Haven't registered yet, but I'm planning on riding back....I just want to find away to avoid the nasty steep section on Fryer Rd Eagleby, after 140k+ I'm sure that it would do me in :roll:

Riding back sounds like a plan. It would be much easier in a bunch or an organised ride.
Maybe BQ is missing an opportunity here :lol:

I'll be doing it with my girlfriend, i've managed to convince her to have this as a fitness goal for the year. I really want to do it on my own sometime and really smash it (first and last time i did it was 2008 with my MUCH slower brother- attempted it last year with my girlfriend but her bike had a terminal mechanical after only 12k, i wasn't going to carry on to the finish and leave her to the mercy of the sag wagon).

That sounds like a good idea. I'll be in it. We could be the "Tight Arses" or maybe "Frugal" sounds more like a pro team.

For team kit we could wear old white ts with "Frugal" scribbled in texta pens and maybe some sponsors names. Hey sponsors! There's another good idea...

Hi All,

Haven't registered yet. Tempted to register while the pre-sale is on to get $50.00 entry, cause I'm a big cheapskate.

I could ride back (yeah, I'm dreaming).

I need a 100km + ride in preparation for the Great Victorian Bike Ride in Nov/Dec. I missed the Brissy to the bay because I had the virus that is going around, so I am still cranky about that.

Cheers,

Anniegray :(

Get her to recruit a friend to ride with her - that way you get to both ride the course at your own pace ;-)

Sheesh, I still haven't managed to participate in one of these big charity rides yet! :oops:

I'm doing the Bridge to Brisbane run in September. I might sign up for this too. Either with my wife on our old Trek MTBs, or I'll do it alone on the roadie.
