Re: My little tour

Hmmm starting to think maybe I should tackle the climb out of Jenolan on Day 2 and camp at Kanangra. No camping at Jenolan so I will save myself some money on accomodation by doing it this way. And I do like the idea of being able to roll down to the walls and soak in the views for as long as I need...

Thanks Weiyun. I figure that if I am running behind schedule that day then I can always skip the side trip to Kanangra walls since it's going to be an out and back trip after Jenolan.

So I'm going on holiday in one weeks time I'm very excited, and I have just planned out my route.

So this is my training plan to get faster before the Mont:

Motorpace, ride a sh!t load of hills, race, ride a sh!t load more hills, race, race, race, find a hill and ride it x 10000, race, race and do some more motorpace.

Re: 2010 Flat Tyre Competition

That's only for when someone else changes your flat. If you are a female other than those specified (Camilla, Jessica, Amy, Joanne, Victoria) you don't get deducted half a point. So you or Lizanne, for example, could not change any of your flats and still get the same points as us!
