I had been thinking about this (mainly cause I thought my wife could do it), but then I came to my senses and plan to road race during this weekend!

Real shame that it is the last one though, was a pretty sweet race.

Other commitments that week-end.

Saves me from having to decide if it is worth the hassle of busting a move from Wellington.

Isn't it public road both sides of the lake anyway?

So you can go and ride 90k's on shingle road with a paddle in the river on the way whenever you want, sure you don't get the race atmosphere but you're not paying $100 for the privilege either.

I think this race failed due to being over priced. $100 (+ another $5 credit card fee and $30 late fee) is way to much for a roadie race. I don't normally care about the cost of races but I think that's taking the piss a bit.

Agreed.

So when is the unofficial Vorb Lake Tekapo challenge, same course but spend the $100 on beer and pizza at Pepe's afterwards instead?

Probably wait until summer though, the water would be a bit cold on the feeties at the moment.

Pretty sure there's a section of private farmland on the way up the lake. Public from first river crossings onward?
