Ok so the Army has spoken. I will ride hirsute.
The course is set. The circuit is 20kms and we ride it three times.
The elevation map is below:
The race begins and ends at Musick Point. Race start is 1:30pm on Sunday 21 August. The weather forecast is for it to be fine and 13 degrees. Not sure on wind conditions yet.
I would like to thank Mt Eden Cycles for the loan of the Specialized bike, their advice and support. I would also like to thank all my loyal readers for their emails of support and encouragement.
A special thanks goes out to Trevor Mallard for challenging me. He has enabled me to get fit, get well, and importantly given me heaps of free publicity.
