I've fitted glow in the dark handlebar tape

Still got 83", so I'll have to pull finger on Sat morning to rectify that

Ive been holding off on admitting defeat but reality has set in! Unfortunately have an injury that seemed to blow up after the Around the Bay in a Day. (Despite which was a great ride).
Am hoping to ride for the first time since this thurs, but still not sure if that's likely. So I hate to say am pulling out of Sundays ride. Happy to contribute to the cost of the room given the late notice and wishing I could join hope you all have a great ride with sunny skies and tail winds all the way home.
Enjoy!

I think it should be fine, just wait for John to confirm.

Anyway, i think i've finalised the route. The decision now is whether to reveal or keep it all a surprise....

Both. It was so much easier getting the route down to be 100miles, without that intention, but the route to tempe i had to redo a second time to find an extra 8kms (found an extra 10, but 2 can be removed by skipping a detour).

Anyway, provided we don't get lost, there's less riding on the M5 this year(18kms), and a different route earlier on. First stop Bowral, then Picton, then maybe a drinks stop around Campbelltown somewhere. Yes, the distance does involve a loop around Bowral track (or is it Burradoo?)

Stuff It!! Here's THE ROUTE


and my route getting there Original and New Shortened Version

I'm taking to my seat tube tonight with a bottle cage, some cable ties and a tube to sort my hydration issue.

Dunno about a latte holder, but I guess I could strap some espresso GU onto my frame...

Have we confirmed how many Mars bars Tim is bringing? He might have to find a way to attach panniers to his fixie.

I'm guessing we'll leave at some point between 8am and 9am. Probably closer to 9 than 8.

The "new shortened route" to bundanoon includes Appin Road. I cannot recommend that route for bikes. No shoulder and just a dangerous stretch of road.

I would suggest menangle rd to menangle, then onto Picton rd. Turn left and up to the F5. Similar distance just safer.

A former local and now work in the area, who has ridden and driven the roads many, many times.

Thanks Beanzy, I'll take menangle rd.

I'd been meaning to check out Appin rd on a training ride at some point, but have never gotten around to it. Looking at Streetview, it does look narrow in some points, especially once you get onto Wilton Rd, but the scenery is nice enough. The big thing though is probably the number and type of drivers using the road.

Sounds like this years fixie century will be a ripper. Unfortunately due to 4 months cycling inactivity due to illness I'll be passing on adding the '09 to the original '07 event.

Looking forward to reading the ride reports though.

And very slowly regaining my health and fitness - on a fixie of course!

Traditionally & offcially the start time is 8am after breakfast but with any of these events there is pre ride photos & last minute adjustments which take place . We try to keep to schedule as it's long day...

I know Lindsay was pretty keen to make sure we split up the groups heading out to Bundanoon on Saturday to avoid the train hassles we had last year.

I've put up 3 options for everyone below. I don't think we need to put everyone into a group on the forum (plus I don't want to get a reputation as a list nazi :twisted: ). Hopefully the groups will be quite even if we just leave it up to people individually (maybe if people just declare their intentions, we can get an idea of numbers).

Option 1 : Lindsay's Group

Airport And East Hills Line train (CityRail)
Dep: 10:53am Central Station Platform 23
Arr: 11:52am Campbelltown Station Platform 3

Southern Highlands Line train (CityRail)
Dep: 12:04pm Campbelltown Station Platform 4
Arr: 1:24pm Moss Vale Station Platform 2

Option 2 : John and James' Group

Airport And East Hills Line train (CityRail)
Dep: 12:53pm Central Station Platform 23
Arr: 1:52pm Campbelltown Station Platform 3

Southern Highlands Line train (CityRail)
Dep: 2:04pm Campbelltown Station Platform 4
Arr: 3:24pm Moss Vale Station Platform 2

Option 3 : Mike Clement's Group

Airport And East Hills Line train (CityRail)
Dep: 2:53pm Central Station Platform 23
Arr: 3:52pm Campbelltown Station Platform 3

Take the Southern Highlands Line train (CityRail)
Dep: 4:04pm Campbelltown Station Platform 4
Arr: 5:24pm Moss Vale Station Platform 2

P.S. Does anyone know Nathan's surname???


Hey guys to help with logistics can people nominate a travel option? We really did have difficulties last year & if there are to many on one train they are liekly to kick someone off...

Folks I'm sorry to report that I'm going to skip this. The reasons are many and varied but it all boils down to my softness really.

Happy to cover my share of the room if necessary. I'll hop on the fixie and ride the 1.60 kms from my house to the German Club on Sunday arvo to share a beer with you all regardless.

Best, Matt

I assume that Option 2 is Noog's group, and we will be meeting up with T-Bone at Moss Vale for the ride into Bundanoon. I will join this group...

Is anyone planning on getting on at Green Square or is the plan for everyone to meet at Central? I am roughly the same distance from both stations.

Sounds like all the fixiers died en-route and could no longer write up a decent ride report. But I did see John in the distance this morning at school and MikeC in the virtual world. So at least 3 made it back. Drop bears much have been vicious this year. :lol:

This is the problem with all of these newfangled Social Networking Sites.

People try and tell you how good something was in 150 characters. There must be more to tell than everyone survived.

If i had the energy to type more than 150 characters i would. I think most people cbf writing a report as they are still in recovery mode. Huw was taking a bunch of photo's so expect more to come.

Well, I can only tell the story from my own perspective. This is a crazy story. For all those interested, read on...

It all started on Friday night when a bunch of us went sailing. The plan was to build my fixie post sailing but was too tired/ exhausted/ hungry.

Went to build bike in the morning, but then realised we didn't have all the parts, bb issues, brakes a drama, stem missing a screw. Tomas arrived and Simon put him to work. The bike was kind-of built, then we left to go race at the Central Coast Opens where Tomas, Simon, Tim, Alex David Browne and myself were racing. Tomas came 3rd in the mens A grade Keirin and won $20!!!

Afterwards we went to David's house so he could fix my bike up sort out ourselves for the fixie century. It was midnight when we arrived. When we were finally ready to leave after much enjoyable gossip, the car wouldn't start. The NRMA came and told us we needed a part. We could wait till the morning or we could get the car towed back to Sydney. We (Kevin, Simon, Alex and myself) crashed at David Brownes house and the NRMA came and fixed the car in the morning. Bed at 2am and Tim left, riding off to a party.

Take 2. On the road. Caught up to the Century riders 30k from the start of the ride at their designated morning tea stop. I rode 50k to Picton where Kevin was waiting for us. We all had lunch together, then the others rode off into the blistering sun, headed for Tempe.

Met everyone back at 6:30pm. All made it back safe and sound, and weiry.

Mikes Report
Saturday
Rode from North Newtown to Central in my Converse's and that was my mistake as the shoe lace on my left foot caught on the pedal and wound up threatening to cut my foot in half but I was saved by the shoe ripping apart.

Nice ride from Moss Vale to Bundanoon, but we kept loosing Hugh who was trying to figure out how my photos he could take before the battery ran out.

At dinner my target was to eat a full 3 course meal and get smashed. Unfortunately I ran out of beer money, but V came to the rescue with a $20, enough for one more jug and 3 packs of chips.

As the night wore on my ability to play pool was seriously diminishing and I hit the sack about midnight.

Sunday
Up at 6 and went for a walk around Bundanoon, woke Lin's at 7 breakie at 7.30. Photo shoot at something like 8.30 on the rode at whatever.

Bundanoon -> Bowral
Got to experience cycle cross. Significant delays while we tried to figure out where the MIA were, some flats too. Tried to do a flying 200 on Bowral Velodrome but had to abort due to traffic.
Chocolate milk shake at Bowral

Bowral -> Picton
A little bit of confusion on the route but the map committee sorted it out. Stopped at Thirlmere had coke and iceblock. Made sure I was at the pointy end for Picton so I could get my order in early - Portuguese chicken burger, chips and lolly water.

Picton -> Campbelltown
Razorback didn't seem as bad this year, perhaps after the cycle cross experience the dirt seemed much better and the decent didn't seem as full on as last year. We got some rather dodgy water at someones house in the middle of no where.

Campbelltown -> Sydney
Stopped at the train station but we had NFI where everyone else was so we decided to head on. We stopped at a servo for water and then headed for the motorway, but there were signs saying that bikes weren't allowed on the motorway due to road works, so we followed the redirection signs, but at one roundabout Mark L and I went right and everyone else went straight. Mark and I decided to press on, we followed the signs and got on the motorway, exiting shortly at the M7 intersection, up and over and back on.

From here there was nuff'n to do but burn up K's so we found some tempo and pushed thru to Bexley, left then right onto Homer and back to Tempe.

I rolled in, first rider at 5.45pm, Kevin was asleep in a chair so I woke him up and did my lap, Mark came in did his lap and then I did a flying 200, scaled down to 77.1". Slow but I felt good

Riders rolled in groups and individuals with the last rider at 6.45pm. The car arrived so we hit the showers and then the German club for some light refreshment.

Monday
Felt a bit shagged, then I discovered that my bike lock was at Ashfield, so rode to work via Ashfield and hit the gym, but I didn't last long. Lunchtime I did my indoor spin class and felt OK, but the ride home I was totally shagged, almost like I was going to bonk then I got a flat rear on the fixie at Sydenham and I couldn't be [profanity] fixing it and walked home, perhaps I'll ride the beast tomorrow.

Cyclocross story was the dirt road (didn't know it was dirt before we got there) that i had added to the route. However when we stopped 3/4 of the way along it, we realised we were missing Lindsay and Huw, so me and John went looking, while the others were sent on. My bike computer decided to take a leap off the bike into the bushes, so i stopped to look for it unsuccessfully. I then didn't know where John had gotten too, so i went up and down a few dirt roads before deciding to get on with it, and phone someone when i could find some reception.

All that basically meant our arrival in Bowral was significantly delayed, over 1hr behind schedule.

I was feeling it today, especially as i was up until 2:30am editing a uni assignment, and had to get up at 6:30am to drop it off at uni before work.


....just remembered another cyclocross bit i took (others took another road) was where i had to dismount to get over a barrier (train line).

Well I would have to say that it was the most fun and rewarding day I have had on the bike to date.

I thought that the fixed cyclocross bit was all part of your evil plan James. That was pretty hard. I have a friend who had been thinking of doing the Highland Fling on his fixie, he had already changed his mind last week but if he had not I would be changing it for him.

My favourite part was riding through some insanely beautiful roads somewhere in between Bowral and the drinks stop. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. Also along some stretch of road just before we stopped for drinks, I was completely seperated from those in front and behind and started to question if I was going the right way... But I was loving riding on my own in what felt like the middle of nowhere. It's really made me want to try touring.

I came back having learnt a lot about what my body does when riding over that period of time - the fatigue, calorie requirements, adrenaline. It's quite insane. I was so excited that I could drink real coke... A rare and special occasion ;)

Interesting how it effects you mentally as well. Being one of, in not the, least experienced and least fit riders there was tough as I was constantly concerned that I was going to get dropped, particularly over the last half of the ride where I really felt I needed to hang onto a wheel to make it home (so much that I decided to crash into one... doh!).

Strangely enough when we rolled into Tempe I was kind of sad. As much as I was in pain and needing to rest, I also didn't want it to be over. I was tempted to do a flying 200 but I figured you might all think I was mad.

It's taken its toll and I have been very tired since. No track last night and a very half arsed training effort this morning. I fell asleep for a second in a meeting just now... Time for another coffee.

When's the next one? Dunno if I can wait a whole year...

Poor ol' Lindsay... he's not been feeling too good in the legs since Sunday evening. I think it was that decent from Razorback that did it. Oh no... here comes some stairs, MUST GRAB HANDRAIL.

My favourite part has been seeing people getting their bikes together over the past months/weeks/days/hours & Sunday morning didn't disappoint with the roll-up outside the pub. We had new ones, old ones, pretty ones & an ugly one or two. So well done everybody who took the time to get a fixie together.

The ride was classic. My favourite bits were riding in a bunch from Bowral to Picton. Seeing the Velodrome at Bowral. Seeing a stream train near Picton. Riding once again with Huw & hearing about his recent touring. Finally having everybody get together safely at Tempe, albeit tired, battered & radio-active dirty.

Made me think about my touring & how much I love it... I agree with Victoria, we should do much more of this stuff.

That was defiantly one of the funnest things I have done on a bike. I really enjoyed the dirt parts (besides the wombat with all of its guts hanging out)
,the long straight and rolling hilled road along and over Hill Top and the massive hill down the back side of old razor back.

The dinner on Saturday night was a great time with more than a few good laughs and a large amount of beer consumed (mostly by Victoria).
The breakfast was edible and I have never seen so much food disappear so quickly, I also heard the coffee was rather unspectacular.

The ride started out very daunting with dirt roads and massive ankle napping hills and also the first flat plus a lost water bottle.
After this the riding was beautiful with a large group of us taking turns in getting lost and slowly grinding up the long and steep hills.
The funnest part by far was the downhill’s where both Mike and Christian would come flying by doing about 200+ rpm which would always make me laugh.

During our lunch stop the main conversation point would be if you were going to walk old razor back and who would be the first to top (I put my money on Alex).
So we work our way out of town and up a missive hill full of Chicken burgers and hot chips trying not to leave a present for Mike Langdon to run over.

At the start of Razor back Mark and Christian come past me and a rate of knots and I settle into fixed gear climbing rhythm of pretending to stamp cockroaches
and avoiding the man sized pot holes in the dirt road. Mark was the first to the top with Christian a close second.

After this the group split up and we slowly worked our way back into Campbeltown via a few detours and water stops.

On the M5 Simon put an attack in and James and Christian both chassed for a while to eventually be dropped. I plodded along a caught up with Christian
after some time who dropped me again with his sneaky lane crossing on exit ramps. With the M5 exit coming up both Christian and James waited for me
(thanks I had no idea where to go) and we climbed up Homer Rd and back into Tempe.

Thanks to James and John for organising this, you guys did a great job and I will defiantly being doing this again. I agree with Lindsay
it would be great if we could do more of this and not necessarily on fixies.

83 would of been challenging

I'd been riding around on 83 for the previous 2 weeks due to not having the correct cog, but I managed to visit Al a couple of days before, so I ended up on 77.1

Here's an idea. How about having a gearing handicap for your future Fixie Century?

Simon must ride 100" OR 35" (must choose at the start and stay in the same for the duration) while the rest would ride the gear according to grading b/n the two extremes allocated to the strongest rider. The least powerful rider is permitted to choose the most preferred gearing.

You have all made me very jealous.

The fixie century has to be back in 2010 too.

Here is the old steed that I'll be riding if it is.

It is an old Apollo III (circa 1983?) I salvaged from my Dad's garage, and had repainted by Peter Fleming at Star Enamellers.

Original handlebars and stem, cranks and chain ring.

New wheels, pedals, brakes, seat post, saddle and bell. I was going to put a Brooks saddle on it, along with leather bar tape, but couldn't afford it. Hence a hand me down Bontrager saddle from a mate who no longer uses it.

Thanks John for organising the w/e.
Good company, epic ride, fantastic scenery!!

As Orphic said, a little sad that it ended but it was a relief for the fatigued bodies :)

Tip: If your wardrobe is a shade tight l can recommend the fixie century to fix that, l've been pulling my shorts up all week :shock: :shock:

I'm with Mark on that comment. I was 87kg when I left Sydney. I was 84kg when I weighed myself on Monday morning AFTER breakfast.

Pretty sure that makes me close to the heaviest rider for the weekend, unless Huw can top my weight?

My fixie ride was an adventure. Started off well, with Huw me and Lindsay riding as backmarkers...

Lindsay wasn't aware that we were planning on doing a lap of Bowral Velodrome, and I when I showed him the turnoff, he took it and disappeared. This left me frantically trying to wave to Huw to come back to the turnoff, but he didn't see me. In the end, I got split up from Lindsay and Huw, who rode to Bowral for coffee. I eventually did the same, but probably took the "scenic" route to get there...

By the time I got to Bowral Velodrome, things had already gone a bit off course for me both literally, and metaphorically. My blood suger had somehow dropped dangerously low, and I found my legs cramping up. I ate all the lollies I had packed for the ride then and there, which helped, but the damage had been done to my body's glycogen reserves for the rest of the ride.

In Bowral, I then sat down in a coffee shop by myself for about 45 minutes, unaware that the correct coffee shop was one block down the hill. Oh well.

Next drama was getting a flat tyre crossing the street to go to the bank, so instead of drinking my coffee, I was huffing and puffing to change my tyre. No major dramas here, except I was in the back bunch again, due to the tyre change, and I had forgotten to rehydrate, again thanks to the tyre...

Not surprisingly, the cramps came back, on the roads out of Bowral. Nothing severe, but it was an ominous sign. I drank plenty on the road, but what was of greater concern was the knicks I was wearing. On long rides I like to wear comfy nicks with a big synthetic chamois. However, these require me to clip braces on them, and on Saturday, whilst packing, my braces had strangely gone missing. End result was that I chose a pair of knicks with that terry towelling at the front of the chamois. Anyway, by Bowral, on a fixie, I was riding on the towelling, not the chamois, and I could feel the chafing. I knew this would not auger well...

I put chafing pain out of my mind and pushed on. Riding from Bowral to Picton was really enjoyable. The pace was mostly relaxed, the roads were very pleasant. Lovely surprises along the way, like steam trains on the railway lines beside me, or llamas peeping out through fences on rolling hills were really nice.

Lunch at Picton was great. I don't recall ever enjoying a paddle pop that much. Then it was on to Razorback, although to be honest, I found the anklesnapper just outside of Bowral to be much more of a challenge. I didn't really stop at the top of Razorback. Lindsay and I decided to ride down. I used my legs to brake most of the way down. Then I had a fun moment with a nesting magpie just after the bottom. Not long after that, I suspect we went the wrong way again. Well... Lindsay knew where he was going, but I don't think it was the official route. We pushed on for a few more kms, and then at Macarthur, when a pub appeared at the edge of town, it was just too tempting. We popped in for a beer, and the bar ladies filled our bidons with cold water and ice. We slapped on some more suncreen, and headed out for the push into suburbia. As we were mounting our bikes, James M appeared. Together we rode to where we met up with the main group just before Holesworthy... I have to thank James and Lindsay who swapped turns at the front from Macarthur, whilst I just paced along behind them. It wasn't hard going, but I could tell the cramps were still there nagging, and waiting for a chance to do their worst. I kept drinking as much as I could to keep in control.

After meeting up with everyone else, and getting another jolt of caffeine via a 600mL coke, I found new energy. I was loving the ride again, and looking forward to the higher pace of the M5. Famous last words. Barely 3 minutes onto the M5, both my legs became rigid with cramps. I recall my back wheel skidding it was that sudden. I had to unclip, and it took about 3 minutes of slow bending and stretching to unseize my legs. In the excitement of the home stretch, I had forgotten to keep drinking profusely, and had paid the price with some shocking cramps. 3 other riders went past me, and I later found out that they thought I had been throwing up, based on my contorted, buckled posture bent over my bike frame. Once the cramps let go, I pedalled onward. My main company was Kevin, who had been one of the 3 who had overtaken me a couple of kms back.

We rode on but Kevin pulled away on the uphills. I eased back to avoid more cramps. Eventually a sign on the M5 said bikes were not permitted. I rolled up to a bike laneway that was gated. At the other end of the laneway, I saw Kevin and someone else tearing off down a sidestreet a different way to the way I was headed. Oh well. Sticking to roads I knew, I rode on. Bexley Road, then Forest Road, then Princes Highway, then Tempe...

I was the last one in, and obviously had found a way to add a few more kilometres to the final ride to Tempe. My watch said 5 to 7 when I hit the Velodrome for my lap. The last 10 km had been a battle of wills against cramps that were ever present, and no longer stoppable. My deviant route had been anything but flat. Some of the climbs would have been hard on a fully geared bike. On a fixe with fresh legs they are insane. With my tired legs they were sheer hell!

I felt pretty good on Monday, but by Tuesday I realised the damage all the cramping had done. I'm sure no-one wants to know about the blood in my knicks as a result of the chafing, and the resulting wounds that took a week to stop bleeding.

Anyway, I loved the fixie ride. I drank a total of 10 bidons of water, plus 4 600mL cokes, plus 2 large cofees. I will be back again next year for sure. I think next time though, I will go a bit easier on beers the night before, and try to not wake up dehydrated with a hangover.

Well Toff,

I think you have talked all of us into entering the Fixie Century for 2010.

A great tale well told, an enjoyable spiel of a difficult and splendid day.

If it doesn't clash with the Gong ( Clash with the Gong! ) I'm sure we would get plenty of keen riders, all wearing two pairs of knicks.

Well done.

Toff, I seriously commend you for continuing on in the ride. I don't know if I would have under those circumstances. Anyone who rode and stopped with me that day knows I checked my blood sugar a gazillion times out of paranoia that exactly what happened to you would happen to me. It really does stuff you up until at least the next day...

Funny thing is, as we sat at dinner on Saturday night I thought kept thinking to myself that I should ease up on the beers (recalling how much beer stuffed me around on my first imperial century ride)... But then I would look across to you and see you sucking them down just as fast, and be reassured that if you could do it then so could I.

I am sure it's a lesson I will learn over and over again and never correct. Beer is just too good!!

Homo Sapien Hugh-mongus

Originally thought to be a separate species to the Homo Sapien's due to its larger size and distinct facial hair, it has been decleared a subspecies as it is interbreed-able, though its mating rituals have never been caught on camera.

Last seen with a camera permanently attached between between its hands, being pointed towards Homo Sapien's dressed mainly in red tops and black shorts, which is believed to be used for fertility ceremonies.

No evidence as to whether the camera had a memory card within has been brought forward.
