sunday, 21st of march (day after converge. fuck)


80km, 45km, 35km, 15km & 12km.


thinking of doing the 45km. $50 though. anyone want to join me?

doing the 80km including mt coottha

doing the 80k cootha, but am part of a team.

well you know its waaaay too close to christmas for anyone to give a fuck about work… :wink:

i have never ridden the mount cootha challenge!! just wondering what everybody thinks about it

did it last year ss 39/16. only saw 1 guy fixed it was peugot (something) or fullface who posts here some times. The hardest part is over in the first 20 mins of the ride then the rest is pretty easy. I’m using a flipflop this year so I can do the last 3/4’s a bit quicker.

Yes cootha is hard. plenty of ppl on roadies with all the gears in the world off and walking up the mountain.

anyone else doing the 80km?
Is there an organised meeting spot to ride 2gether?

had a crack at cootha today on a very easy ratio, fixed. Lots of ppl out doing the same thing (on roadies).

Do you have Green wheels? I saw someone climbing up on fixie as I was coming down on my roadie.

SE red lager w/ blue V’s about 6.30- 7.00am ish… going the back way.
