Is this related to the McAfee Anti-Virus issues of the last few days? I've heard of at least one other person running McAfee having issues.

My husband uses AVAST on his laptop and on Tuesday his computer got a very bad virus (or spyware) invasion from what should have been a benign website. He is not sure whether his firewall was disabled at the time, though. I was wondering whether there is some nasty spyware out there at the moment that is causing McAfee and other programs to be overly cautious with sites....... Personally I have not had a problem registering for the Ride2Riverstone - but I use Norton.

Paul, it might be the fact that the web-hosting is by "blinddog". Perhaps that sounds dodgy, errr or naughty........?

I get a similar message from my Trend Micro security product - warns the site is infected with malware, as I'd been to the site before with no issues being flagged I just went in anyway and have had no virus or malware issues at all.

Early-bird registrations close on April 30th. Adult entries cost an additional $10 each from May 1st. (There will be on-the-day registrations as well).

I can't replicate the problem. I'm using McAfee 8.7i Antivirus on an XP machine, and tried with Firefox 3.6.3 and IE8....All working for me.

Is anyone familiar with the course? Considering doing the 100km course on the fixed gear.

Google seems to think the site is clean:

* http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=ride2riverstone....

I checked the source and saw some the site was doing some dodgy stuff and downloading something from an script at an external site at but its now returning an error. If you're interested the page was

* http://hingham-ma.gov/Scripts/FadeSlideShow/ajax.php

Its possible that page got hijacked and has now been removed, but I'd probably be checking your machine for malware.

I'm familiar with the course (well, hope I am since I nominated it). The 100km route is basically 2 loops of the 50km circuit. Most of it is undulating, with a few half decent climbs. Here is the bikely elevation image of the route:

Note that to complete the 100km in the allotted 4.5 hours, an average speed greater than 23 kmph will need to be maintained.

Thanks Rob, I should have spotted the profile on bikely! Looks a bit more challenging than what I get round here in the inner west, so maybe I'll bring the gears :)
