So, I have a plan. Admittedly embryonic at this point however a plan no less. I need a date and a couple of fellow lunatics to help me out with the "DHBC 240".

West Head - Waterfall - LaPa 240km extravaganza, 12 hours and the traditional Pork Knuckle dinner at the Concordia Club.

Anyone in?

Well you'd at least get the Fondo badge for the month.

You can count me in Dougie - I'm away until mid June.
Have a great ride,

Count me in too! Loved the sound of this on Sunday morning, I've been thinking about it ever since.

Perrrrrrhaps

Start in the dark. Finish in the dark. That would be a first for me.

I may need a wheelbarrow to get home after the pork knuckle.

A Sunday would reduce the engagement with Jessica in her Jeep and Ulysses in his ute.

Wow, that is epic. Some details to consider before getting on board.

How many stops (if any?) along the way.
Average speed.
Departure time.
Throw in East Hills after LaPa? (Olala & Bellevue would feel great at the end of the day wouldn't it?)

I will need to earn some major brownie points to get a pass for this, so I'll start tonight.

Look forward to more details.

Holy Schmoly!
The profile looks like a comb.
And almost 24 hours elapsed. How did the Garmin battery last that long?

I am looking at Sunday June 29th 5.30am start with a 5.30pm finish I would say. However I haven't got approval yet. It certainly won't be any earlier.

I will be dealing with that once the Ken Dinnerville is out of the way this Sunday.
