So, the next question would be, how do I recognise everyone?

I am 192cm with dark, closely cropped hair.
Seeing as I have just one set of riding gear :oops:, I can tell you with certainty that I will be wearing a red/white top and black nicks. Possibly, a very white jacket if wet as well.

Flights back to north island are a bit exxy sunday night. Have to convince SWMBO that a nice weekend away would be good, say this time next year?

If it all gets to much of an uphill battle, go for the PMM challenge on the same day. Free lunch, and a selection of distances up to 100km

As you can see above, I tried to photograph the brochure and upload the photo, as my skills are not adequate to scan and upload. If you PM me your email address, I can scan and upload as attachment to email. I know how to do that :D

At Richmond on Wednesday, Brian or Nigel usually have a supply of the brochures.

I still think it's poor form to make us all chose and split all the riders up between 2 events.
Where is the co-ordination?
I knew the date for the Wellington Challenge well before anyone notified me of the PMM one (for which I was emailed by the organisers).

Isn't there a central body that manages these events? Cycling Australia/Tasmania?
Surely if there isn't, there should be.

You certainly don't see these kind of cock-ups with the running community.

An interesting point on the coordination. PMM wrote to all the cycling bodies very early in the piece as they had their ride in January prviously. The Mountain Challenge has been included in bike week ever since it moved across from the Vets to Cycling South (insurance). This year its not. Everyone does their planning and permits a long time before it is anounced - hopefully something good will come out of the mixup.

the Genesis/All Aerobics Seven Mile Beach Tri is also on the same weekend - this tri is always on the same weekend as the Mt Well TT. :roll:

meh there will always be an event clash, at least there are a few 100km community rides through the year. There is another one on in mid march there is a poster for it on the bike track under the bridge :wink:
