My 2nd The Slog ( had done 5 Slog to Sale) . Only did 150km that was enough with the heat and no training except for Ride2Work 65km & ATBIAD 50km. Not as hard as the Slog to Sale 2009 with strong East headwind all day!
Last year did both circuits (150 & 70) solo - had 1 sponsor double his large sponsorship if I did both loops. I was a bit fitter and much cooler being a month earlier.
Anyhow my computer said 150.8km ave speed 24km/hr time 6h 17m, ave cad 74 for The Slog 2011. Used lots of sunscreen on my exposed white limbs - worked well - you need to cover backs of knees! Safety cars provided food water and sunscreen great job. My daughter completed the much flatter 70km loop. Please invite more riders along to enjoy, be challenged by The Slog 2012
