Single Speed 6 & 12hr Event

Postby cyclelady on Tue 25/May/10 9:51pm

Hi Graeme and Maria here from the Black Stump. We are considering organising a Single Speed 6hr and 12hr event. We would like to know if there is any interest for an event of this nature?

We are thinking of holding it around the 1st weekend of August. There would be 7.5km loop which has approximately 200m vertical climb. The event would be open to teams and solo BUT only SINGLE SPEED. You can visit www.mtbrace.co.nz

Look forward to hearing your thoughts!

sounds like a bit of fun, in the weird kind of way that SS'ers call things fun :thumbsup:

is the thrust of this thread, my reply is yes - I'm in.

Might just go for the 6hr myself though, since I failed by a couple of hours to ride out the full 12hrs at the (very flat) Moonride on a geared bike :blush:

12 hr solo on a single speed would be :crazy: if the course was anything like the elevation/steepness of the Black Stump!

sooo... if it is a SS race, how many beer shortcuts are you allowed in 6 hours? 12 hours? :sly:
