Anyone doing this tomorrow? They've raised $200k for MS I think!!

Anyway I'm riding the 50km on my Candy Apple Red Bridgestone Track bike. Give me a yell if you see me. :twisted:

Yep. I'll be doing the fiddy as well. Hope those predicted showers stay away.

Bit surprised the roads aren't being closed for it.

Not I. Heading off on a Audax ride instead. Cannot get excited about the MS Ocean ride as that is my daily commute route.

Turned out to be a good ride. Got soaked but most people gritted the teeth and put up with it. Couple of offs I heard. Hope everyone picked themselves up ok. Cranked out the 54k in just under 2 hrs which wasn't bad considering the traffic and the multitudes of other cyclists we had to get around safely.

Yeah was pretty fun. I got there in 1hr 35 but backed off at the end as everyone was getting a bit loopy in the rain pulling some dick moves. My mate who I was riding with got a flat tubbie in the last 4km lol!
