We're meeting 4.50a-5.00a at the north end of the Goodwill Bridge. Most of us will be wearing blue and black Ascot Catering kit.
We will try to stay together or break into two smaller groups (depending on safety and conditions) til the end of the busway. The fastest will push on with no stops (encouraged to carry 3 bottles electrolyte and 1x30-35g muesli bar/hr or 1.5-2xgels /hr or 1 banana/hr or a mix of similar). The rest of us will sort ourselves out.
That sounds like a group to be part off, what sort of time are you looking at and average for the trip? I am guessing that you are aiming at a straight run if 3 bottles are needed?
I can pull a 32 average solo over a 60-70km river loop .... Let me know if I qualify and I may tag along and bring a mate for more help?
