A few of us are doing a fixed 300 ride this Saturday to raise some coin for Cam McFarlane’s motorpacing bike, and also Jrn cycling development. We’re having a BBQ and beers at the Harrison st Velo from 6pm Saturday at the finish of the ride. It’d be cool to get some people to come down and hang out- there’ll be some track racing if you want to pin a number on or you can have a coke with Duggan and a beer with the rest of us.

Also if you want to meet us along Beach rd and ride in with us that’d be tops.
Someone mentioned meeting you guys down beach road. Any expected time you’ll be in franga ?
yeah i might roll down to mordialloc or black rock. what’s the ETA?
We’re leaving Fed square at 4:30am- hoping to crank out as many k’s in the morning as posible and then take it easy/get through it. It’ll be up in the air and we’ll plan on keeping people up to date via the event page and prob the Saint Cloud Racing page on FB on our progress and intended arrival time. If you want to pm your number to either me or Duggan then we can text you. I’m hopefull we’ll be leaving Franga by 3/4pm rolling into HSV by 7 ish…
Sounds good - depending on the day’s plan I might roll down and lead you out to HSV!
can some one redo the image link for matty, he fails at foa
i’m sure a mod can fix it in the OP
you know, i’ve never seen that movie. how many times have you guys seen it?
once. it’s actually pretty sucky. i bought it cheap at JB so you can borrow if you want to judge suckiness yourself
if this was the actual poster, and gene was actually in it, I would watch it 300 times.
it makes me laugh everytime I look at it.
i would slay persians if i was in this movie
I’ve been told that if Gene pikes out early he has to pin a number on that night in penance.
Also - come down to the velodrome and cheer these guys on when they arrive. 300kms in a day is a serious knock, let alone doing it fixed.
High fives and cold beers/cokes will definitely be earnt at the end of it.

Fuck me, this is bullshit. Times are approximate and assuming us averaging about 22 km/h. #zeromechanicals
We’ll probably average higher than this, but there’s going to be punctures and other stops guaranteed.
Yeah that’s a big day at any time of year, on any kind of bike. With 32 max on Saturday and probably northerly winds that’s gonna be a big effort indeed.
Good luck with it.
