Me too! See you there Johan!
Question is, what to wear? Lycra or old school?
Shame I didn't saw you...
We have to catch up for a coffee on a weekend mayby ??
For surrrreee! It was fantastic. I just made it to FedSqr at around 9.31am but saw a huge group heading off to the start, so continued with them. As luck would have it, I got a puncture about half way to the start and thought foook it! I rode it with a flat to the start and repaired it before I got my pack. Luckily someone had some rubber cement as mine was as dry as a bone!
Started out with another pack and just rode it as best I could. It was sooooo much fun, but unfortunately only made it to Sector 6 and had to ride back home as I had other things to do today (HATE committments!). Anyway, it was still worth it and took heaps of pics some of which I placed on Twitpic (@_cycleman_). Mind you, I just caught those two tandem guys with their black motorbike helmets fall on Sector 3 (the one with the first Health Stop I think) and yelled out - "YEAH! I HAVE IT ON VIDEO". They laughed and it was a hoot to watch.
After I crossed over the Yarra, I got lost and ended up at the Northcote flats! Eventually went over and as I said, did Sectors 5 & 6. Gave up from there, but had a great lunch at Lygon St and off home I went.
Will book all day next year though! This was more fun than the ATB!
