I would bring a bungee cord as a back up just in case he hit's the wall. Good luck, will be a great achievement, remember seeing a bunch of secondary school kids last year doing the 210, they were all over the place but moving well.gavin wrote:baudman wrote:^ Are you escorting him?

Yes, I am riding with my son. He'll never be more than 2 feet from me, either behind, in front, or next to me on my left. I think we will ride at 20km per hour in the first half, then pick up if feeling good. He was at swim training at 5.05am this morning, this gave me 2 and a quarter hours to do my last training ride on the Kew Boulevard. There weren't many other riders there at that time.

Also, can anyone tell me if the ferries fill up and you need to wait for the next one, or do you always fit onto the next ferry that comes in? So for example, if we arrive in Queenscliff at 10.45, will we get onto the 11am ferry without any trouble? EDIT: OK I just read this https://www.bv.com.au/general/great-rides/92858/
