eilgra wrote:Any answers to these questions from someone who has done this ride or something similar would be helpful as we have to make a decision soon. We all ride up to 5-6 times a week, recently did Syd-Gong ( had a great time ) but looking for something extra.

"The Brasserie" is a fabled "entertainment" location at the campsite. I hope you like hearing "Browneyed Girl", and "(insert CCR song title here)", because you'll hear little else.
If you're hoping to meet people on the ride, there'll be about 1300 loonies and about two dozen normal people.

My view on introducing the "3 strikes and you are out, except injury, illness or mechanical problems" policy will attract a better class/type of rider and I'm all for that.
