Courier option: GREAT INNOVATION!!! Longer route for licensed vets: Guess I will be buying a racing license for 2014. I will be doing a lot of dropping of the back of the peleton next year!

@ geraldm24 how did your summer fast one go on Sunday? You didn't stop me in my brightest of yellow shirts for a chat.

Stiglitz86, Jan 14 2014 07:41

I will be entering the 103km with only 3 x 60km rides under my belt so far this year. Cramps in-coming.

geraldm24, Jan 14 2014 07:46

ScottC-M, Jan 14 2014 07:52

geraldm24, Jan 16 2014 10:57

Just over 5 weeks to go... 701 entries in (so far).

Pre-ride this weekend for club members - time to check out the potholes on the route.
Find out what work we're in for in the week leading up to the race.

Looks like EMPD may grant us permission to have full road closure on the north bound lanes on the R23 at the 5km to go point (Pots Nursery). All north bound traffic will move onto the south bound side between Pots and the R554. It's only the traffic coming in/out of Dalpark to manage.
