great photos - there is one of Lottie and I at the start - virtually on our own - me looking for the clip - was desperate not to cause a crash - don't know how to cut and paste onto this site but have saved a couple of photos on facebook - thanks to the organisers.

Fiona,

There's a sticky explaining the upload process - unless you have a home server, you'll need to post images online (photobucket/imgur, etc.) as the forum doesn't have bandwidth capacity to host all the images. From there, get the code and follow the instructions! You have your minimum post count and time as member milestones sorted so it should be easy enough.

Alternatively, post a link to the facebook image?

Glad you had a good time - now enjoy the B2GC!

Is this you Dan??

I did the 100km with a mate (his first ever 100km ride). We went at an easy pace so I took the oppurtunity to race up each hill and wait for him at the top afterwards.

You actually said something to me when i rode past you at the top of Lyndon Road (after the hills from the rest stop). You looked like you were waiting for someone further back.

I only remember because i didnt hear what you said to me, something about "...star..." i think, and i replied "Cheers!" hoping it was a compliment of some sort.
Then a few kms later thought that perhaps maybe you had asked me something about the course and my response would've made no sense to you...so I chuckled at the thought of the confused Crédit Agricole rider for the next 60kms.


This is me (in blue/white on the Wilier) and my mate (in black/white on the Forza).

Was a great ride. Nice weather, nice people and nice road shoulders (not like in Brisbane!). The ending was a little funny - 500m of footpath and an anti-climatic finish line.
But theyre only a small organisation so Id rather the money be spend on more important things in the charity. :D Two thumbs up :mrgreen:

That's me Rob. I talked to almost everyone I came across, a few world encouragement go a long way, whether one needs it or not :)
Some happy to respond, some thought I must've had leprosy or something...

I actually instagrammed you coming up that last steep bit - which was the 'you're a star!' reference - here you are in living, climbing, colour...

haha now it all makes sense :lol:
Good work mate - there were some great efforts from big guys and girls, who for just finishing the 100kms is a massive achievement. Good to see everyone out enjoying life and being healthy.

Thanks for being my personal photographer for a day too :mrgreen:

To tell the truth Rob, Dan was waiting for moi, I'm slow enough going upwards but I stopped to ask the young (well young to me) lady if she was ok or needed some help (her bike was upside down on the grass nature strip) but she was too busy talking on her phone to answer, no excuse, it slowed me down by an extra 30 seconds maybe.
