yep, I am in.

I did a recon and went and rode Black Mountain then across to Mt Stromolo and Red Hill yesterday. Not too shabby.

$55 or whatever it is is a little too much for me for a ride I can do anytime for free unfortunately,. Did it a few years ago when it was cheaper and it was a good ride though.

Fair call, Haks.

Good excuse for out-of-towners like me to go visit Canberra for weekend, so I'm keen for that alone. Plus Rotary raise money for good causes, so hopefully they'll make a few bucks out of it.

Glad to hear from a local who rates the course though- cheers!

Yeap its a great ride for out of towners and is pretty well supported along the route. Vikings are doing a race out from SFP on Sunday as well which I thought was a little unusual so i'll prob do that one.

Going to do D grade handicap group HAKS? From memory you said you were in D grade crits no? (please take no offense if you are much better than this). There's also the CCC Cotter ITT on Saturday too! Going to be a good weekend of racing.

Yeah, it's a ride a lot of people do any day of the week... so paying for the pleasure is a bit ... I don't know, but obviously an organised event like this will always raise the profile for a healthy pastime like cycling!

If you're doing the time trial check where the start is going to be, I've heard that it has been shifted to SFP (SFP to top of Mt Mac via Uriarra Crossing) due to road works on Cotter Rd.

5 Peaks looks like fun, but I probably won't be participating, a few big weekends of climbing has left me feeling a little fatigued.

Plan is to do the CCC one on Sat and then likely the VCC on Sun depending on weekend commitments. D grade for both of them.

Bummed I couldn't participate. I had leave passes used up after Amy's and Mont last two weekends. Nice weather for it.
