Bummer they didn't let you finish it or make it clear what the time limits really were, Yoyo. It must be terribly disappointing. Thanks for passing on your experience, and hopefully others can learn from it.

The Rider warrants that he/she has prior experience or will obtain experience riding in groups and be able to maintain
a minimum average speed of 20km per hour over the ride distance in the ride terrain.
Yoyo - I'm sorry you didn't complete your ride. Your shortest stated target of 12 hours was already outside the minimum speed required of averaging 20km/h (which would have covered the ride in 11 1/2 hours), and your fall back time of 13 hours greatly exceeded the time expected.
As a slower rider, your expectation needed to be leaving Dinner Plain by 2.00pm, not arriving at 2.15pm.
I'm not having a go at your riding speed - just it didn't meet the targets required to complete this ride.
Well done you on a great achievement.

1) Much clearer time limit briefing on webpage when promoting the ride.
2) Rubber matts and a plastic chair in the Dinner Plain change room / tent. Standing on wet muddy grass almost defeated the purpose of changing.
3) let riders sign a disclaimer that they will only continue after 8pm at entirely at there own risk, it is a public road after 8pm is it not.
