I've already entered, i got an e-mail from MS to enter early because apparently I'm part of a valued fundraising team, but may not ride it depending on the date of the fixie century.

I received an email and trashed it with all the spams. I'll wait for when general entry opens.

MikeC and I have plans to organize an Extreme Gong ride this year for anyone who wants to join, looping through Camden on the return. But the idea came up before Mike knew the potential dates for the Fixie Century. Yet again, when has a tough challenge stopped Mike? :wink:

[/quote]Well, if some of the best riders and long term members in the club can't be bothered to attend the biggest public ride of the year in club colours and fund raise for a worthy cause when they could easily move the fixie ride, then why would anybody else be bothered? Is it just too mainstream or what? I'll be riding in BLUE[/quote]

There will be enough DHBC riders that don't ride fixies that will do the Gong ride. It will just have to be a smaller number than last year.

Ok, let's draw a line and restart this thread. :wink:

==================================================================

I've just entered and the package deal of $80 including T-shirt and lunch seemed to be pretty good.

Who else are coming on this ride? General entry opens tomorrow.

James, do you want to be the team leader? "Team DHBC" was what we used in the last 2 years.

I'm planning on registering early tomorrow morning. It depends on what they mean by Rego's open on the 15th.

If I am in first, then I will set myself up as Team Captain.

No no Weiyun, you have it all wrong. The weather will be fantastically hot. Early morning rides with the rising sun, then continuing onto the beach where you bask all day all day in the sun, picnicing and staying cool in the water, then enjoying a summers eve ride about town in the long evening sun. Imagine the possibilities!!! You don't even have to worry about how you'll keep yourself warm once you get to your destination!

Bring on SUMMER!!!

Excellent, so far that's Brian, Nada and myself for the Gong Slowies group. Oh and Nada tells me she's on a tandem with James. Additional Slowies most welcome!

Geez and I thought I had a low number... I'm A503 with a start time of 6.30. James is A518 with a start time of 6.15. Shall we see you at the team starting area then? James and I plan to be there for 6.00. Hopefully we can get an early start as I don't know how they can enforce the start times on our envelopes. Are you a slowy Terry or a fairly quick rider?
