Those steel rims can get quite a burn on. But it's Razorback this year, not Macquarie Pass! And props to you John for being the first bloke to sign up.

Keeper of the Flame bikes?

Can I do it fixed and do we get to eat steak while supping on Rosso Antico? Whatever that is - just something that I recall always being behind the bar at my local Black Stump in the 1980s.

Start a list! If the people who've indicated interest (or anyone else) jump on, and you make it to four, then all good. Otherwise Sam & Dylan will hook you up with some people. It's worth asking around at the cafe too - lots of people won't know about it.

I've got one team organized (& in fact just booked accommodation) so that's at least 2 DHBC teams from the look of it, maybe even 3. If anyone wants to come but can't make a team I'm sure Sam & Dylan would happily hook you up with some people.
