I would recommend a luxury 5 star hotel with attached day spa for the duration.

Hi tanadog, without knowing you or how you ride I can't really comment on you reaching the Okains Bay store on Saturday before closing, BUT I suspect not.
It closes at 7pm, 12 short hours after the start and about 160km and maybe 5000m climbing into the event :sly: I hope you prove me wrong and do make it. I have just spoken to them, they have fish and chips available from 1pm - 7pm on Saturday but NOT availble at all on Sunday.
See you an Saturday morning, Scott

Well done Brian! Top 5 position, but you came in 1 min behing Rob Davidson - was it a sprint finish? :crazy:

Look forward to a ride report?

Jasper still persisting on doing this course on a SS *shakes head*
