I have moved this post - Info/Announcements is for BNA forum info and announcements. This probably best belongs in the Qld section.

What "final hills" Rob ?

there is a loooong climb after 85 km and a long climb at 115 km and then you have to battle the remaining 50 km of undulating suffering.

Not all the bunches will welcome add-ons. :?

Addendum - brainwave ! you are a southside boy correct ? - therefore prob could ride with the Crouching Tigers hidden dragons bunch.

"Final Hills" = I read something about the 'dirty dozen' hills at the end of the ride which can cause grown men to cry.

Fair point about bunch jumping - although I do make a point of asking first and doing my share of pulls.

I saw those Crouching Tiger guys on Facebook - ill send them a message and ask.

Cheers

Onya Brett!Don't worry, I'll be in for a long day as well.
Just hope that the weather is good (not too hot or raining). Just remember to keep eating and drinking to fuel you up.

If you are talking about us the Crouching Tigers, most of us have now dropped from the 160 and only doing the 100 this year. lack of preparation and all that being the excuse. Few are still doing the 160. I noticed it is easy to stay bunched but as soon as Boonah arrives, most dribble out in ones and twos because of what is coming up and being hit by cramps :)

It's actually a 170k ride! Better to be prepared for that and plan for that extra 10 k now. Have fun and enjoy!

Are you riding?

Will be good to put faces to names...

Oops wrong person!

I might be wishing that I'd signed up for the 100 miles instead of my race about 1pm tomorrow :mrgreen:

Great training day yesterday (mt cotton and mt gravatt for 106km) on the back of mt Nebo (88km) on Saturday... Clocked up another 66km today.

Counting down to Sunday now... 170km is a whole other ball game...

Very pleased to be doing the 50km... My first of these sort of events. Riding with some friends so should be good. Hubby doing the 100km.

At this early stage looks to be a southerly breeze similar to last year. Isolated showers around with a start temp of 14ish and 21 around 10am.

Good on you for having a go. The 50km is a fun ride with not much in the way of hills at all. I've done the 50km 3 times now, twice on the mtb and last
year on the roadbike, so I shall be giving the 100km a crack this time. Looking forward to see how i go for the 2km cat 5 hill around the 45km mark, and
if i average > 25kph over the 100km i'll be stoked.

Thanks guys. My husband's done the 100 km before so I've heard all about the climb on that one! Good luck to you all too.

Good on you for stepping up to the 100km. I did it last year for the first time (hadn't done the 50) and it was my first ever 100km ride. That hill isn't so bad. It's only steep for a little bit and you can stand up and grind it out. I was pretty much bang on 4 hours or 26.5km/h avg and that was with probably 20 minutes spent at the side of the road dealing with cramps in the second half!

Watch out for pot holes around Peak Crossing. I broke a spoke there.

Well, i virtually have a new bike since i did the ride out at Ipswich last year, having replaced the 25 year old mavic rims that were on it (that had a 13-21t 6 speed freewheel on campag record hubs - which i was continually breaking spokes on) with a set of ProLite Como's which i've done a hassle free 1,500+ km commuting on sofar. Wheelset change necessitated an upgrade to new cassette, RD & chain, and i've recently swapped out the downtube shifters for set of ultegra brifters (makes a huge difference to riding!) and put on a new headset with a shorter stem.

I can't forsee any problems with the hills for the 100km after having done Mt Gravatt Mountain several times, which is supposed to be a cat 4 hill. Besides, if you have to go up, you must have to come down the other side some time and i need to break my speed record of 70kph...
