"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…"
"Thanks for your thoughts Bhanu.

The fella who won the fastest in this year's Transcontinental Race has never…"
Would the club put in a special order for those flankes? They looked good, though one or two thought they were a wee large for their (skinny) ankles. I'd buy a pair.
A 2016 article from Cycling Tips on fluro and reflective…"
"Well done Bhanu on your effort.
I was driving back to Canberra from Tarago and had to miss a wombat and several roos. Tis one of the risks in riding during the dark in Oz.
The ride would not have been easy to continue following the news on…"
"Thanks for the update Bill. I have ticked the box for a BRM at Bright.
I was unaware of Fitz's being no longer a BRM. Thankfully I have downgraded my aim from a YRR to PYRR, so I would not have to rely on Fitz's for an October brevet. Plus…"
Well done in riding Fitz's Classic after your warmup on Friday. Of course it would be more pleasant as you missed out on riding Apollo Road and Corin Road. ;)
If you are interested in one of the flatter 300s Bill mentioned above…"
