That's hardly a wee ride, great work!

I see Malcys transition from mtb to roadie is nearly complete. Has the kraken got tt bars on it yet?

Is it time to revisit the coaching and whether it works post again?

September Gran Fondo - Completed Woo-frickin-hoo

It was a miserable day! Cold, Drizzle, and a block headwind all the way home :angry:

Been a looooooong time since I rode 160k's / 100mi , and yes it was a cold drizzly day, and then to have it topped off with a head wind all the way home :crazy: .... not to mention my two punctures :blush: :D

Still enjoyed it though :thumbsup:

Very impressed, is this training for something big in the summer or just a big ride because you can.

Not training for anything, I am doing St James in a couple of weekends time. So it was nice to know that the legs can still spin for a big day.

But it was really just as you say, because I can. I just love riding my bike, I mean if you can, why the hell would you NOT want to spend as much of the day on a bike as you can. Clocks have gone back now so I'm planning on packing in plenty of riding.

I've not planned any Brevets (yet) but you never know. What are you planning? Tempt me!

When you doing the St James ? We're in there 5/11 as a bit of a training ride before the OGR on the 18th.

Nah dawg, we're in there on the 8/10 weekend, shame, that'd be awesome for a little hook up.

Have you done the OGR before? I must publish my ride report. I rate the OGR as one of the greatest.

Nah. We booked for that time last year about 6 months out hoping we would get a hut on opening weekend but missed it by a week ! They we generous enough to push our booking out. We're starting at Lyell and going through to Stern Valley which apparently will be a large day. And going on past experience with this group there will be plenty of hydrating the night before to make it easier :exclaim: Would be great to see your write up if you could chuck it up.

Our plans are very long term. We've put our names down for Tour Aotearoa 2018. We've also bought a tent, so that's us committed.
Haven't decided what we will do this summer. Either Kiwi Brevet or just a lot of long weekends by ourselves (have to start using the tent).

I was a victim of TA2016 - came in just under 15 days riding my CaadX 105 disc CycloCross bike equipped with pretty damn light equipment, though also carrying pretty unnecessary stuff like cooking equipment.

Are you planning on doing it quickly or a more leisurely pace?

We plan to take our time. Somewhere between 25 - 30 days. Lots of the course goes through places I've never been and might not be again in the future. I want to make sure I take enough time to slow down and see it all.

I know the strava app is notorious for poor elevation results so here's another comparison

Rik - not sure if I've asked this before or not, but it would be really cool if you could embed videos from relive.cc on vorb ;)
