Have packed a LOT of food, so hope I'll eat a lot of it early on, because it's heavy (but I might need it, going by what I ate on training rides). Only one banana, due to the weight. Will set alarm for 5..... no good at this stage to be earlier!

Turns out it was rather warm in Frankston & Melbourne around 3:45 am and 4:30 am respectively, and in Alexandra gardens I actually tried just the jersey but the wind was getting thru it. So put all the other stuff back on.
Just as well for by Werribee the temperatures dropped, and in the Bellarine Peninsula got drenched by fine rain for an hour or so. But once the ferry took us over to Sorrento, it was 16 there. Initially I kept everything on, but by Dromana it was getting rather hot, so took a 10 minute break, taking everything off, re-arranging pocket contents so I could fit my undergarment and rain jacket in the pockets of my jersey. Just wore the jersey from there on till the finish line.
