Re: Velofix - Indoor Cycling Challenge

I'll ask the guys today, but I'd hope that if you come in at the same time as a spin class during June, as long as you pay the $25 they would consider your effort.

Their event is supposed to coincide with Wiggins attempt I guess.

Re: Audax - Wing it West - Saturday, 23 May 2015

I'd consider the 150 if I caught the train out to the start, then maybe do the ride home.
I'm not really sure what that extra 50 kms gets you, there's no extra hills or a massive change in scenery...
200 is probably pushing it for me anyway.

What pace you would you ride at (kph avg or finish time)?
