"Thanks Bill. I will look at one of his weekends for either a 300 or my first 400. Not as far to travel from Canberra also compared to Sydney.
PBP in 2023 for me Bill. I won't be able to get enough leave passes to qualify for next year."
One hour in breaks for a 400 is a top effort. I have become a fan of shorter breaks as the body does not cool down as much and then it doesn't take you as long to get back in a rhythm. Riding with Katherine and Ian is good training to…"
Sorry to hear about your spill. Hopefully your recovery is swift.
As there is a small event in August 2019, will the riding calendar be loaded to the first half of the year so riders can do their SR qualifiers? I see a Forbes weekend is…"
"Thanks for the great write up Andrew.
I can understand you would want to cycle that ride again in warmer times as you would go quicker too. The temperature you rode at over the weekend meant the air density was between 7-12 percent greater than when…"
"Congrats Andrew on finishing your first 600. I rode on Sunday wearing the most clothes I have for a ride starting at noon. The thought of the 0500 start on Saturday - BRRRRRRR! What lessons, besides not riding another one in the middle of winter,…"
"That is a bugger.
Has the pain in your hip increased as you rode more in the first half of this year?
A lack of motivation at this time of year is very understandable. The worst part of watching the Tour de France is seeing people riding…"
"Top effort Andrew and Bhanu on Saturday in trying conditions.
Andrew, you should arrange with Bhanu which 600 he is going to do in the spring. You are close to a Super Randonneur, and the SR jersey looks pretty good.
Windy rides are…"
"Returning to Forbes before starting the second leg could be beneficial. If you are prepared, you could restock food/supplies at the motel for your second 200km.
Winds forecast are from NW - 22kmh to 33 kmh. "
"Thanks for the write-up Andrew. How is your knee?
Bar the cool start on Saturday, you would have had a pleasant day to be on the bike.
Taking on a 400, wooo. (It is on my list once Miss 2 becomes a wee older.) You should complete it under 20…"
I noticed you had some of the bar bottle bags. They come in handy for carrying food too.
You were economical re time off the bike compared to your two riding companions in Parkes.
Thanks for the tip re 400s Garry. It will come in handy…"
"Congrats on your first 300 Andrew. Your silly 200 in Canberra this January would have been good prep to ride in warm conditions.last weekend.
I have chatted to a few experienced Audaxers and they say 400s are only ridden to complete a Super…"
