Agree, Hotham is a 'brute' of a climb, especially if you've not done it before. Any semi-recreational rider that can do it in under 2 hours (from harrietville bridge to the 'tunnel') is doing pretty well (ie: 15kph ave)....so if you've nominated 'mid 20's' as your speed average for the ride, you're gunna have to make it up elsewhere
I'd love to be able to do it in under 2 hours... actually that might have been an aim at ToB. Unfortunately, a little stack got in the way of that.
