Who was the second person to ride a fixed wheel on the Midnight Century (first was a few years ago)? :? Hint: the Midnight Century is a 100 mile ride starting at midnight, going over the Grandchester Range and finishing at breakfast in Ipswich Queensland. There was a fair amount of rain for the first time in over a decade.
Somebody else finished on a singlespeed with sneakers. Sorry, playing with forum features
I hope InthePink is feeling a little better after his bingle and subsequent ambulance ride on Saturday morning.
Well, it is on again this year. First weekend in December, starts in Ipswich midnight Saturday, two rest stops with decent coffee and food, showers at the finish Sunday morning and breakfast. Anybody interested?
Need two headlights, two tail-lights, reflective vest or similar.
$35 gets you 2 rest stops with real coffee and plenty of food, showers at the finish, breakfast and a ride you won’t get anywhere else. Starts 23:59 Saturday 1st December, finishes Sunday morning, both in Ipswich.

Apologies to LWAB that this thread has turned ugly.
To vjb: Nick together with several other moderators and administraters have been very patient with mj for various reasons not appropriate for this forum. It is certainly not a case of Nick targetting mj. Perhaps you are unaware of the entire situation. I’m happy to talk things over with you if you like.
Don’t make me create my own little flame war in this thread (it’s obviously doomed!)
I’m not an historian either, but having said that, I am not a ‘retard’…
“Swedish neutrality refers to Sweden’s policy of neutrality in armed conflicts, which has been in effect since the early 19th century… Since the time of the Napoleonic Wars, Sweden has not been involved in any armed conflicts. Sweden’s military is however involved in major peacekeeping actions around the world.”
I’m not an expert, but I actually think that while Switzerland is the ‘obvious neutral nation’, Sweden may in fact have been neutral beforehand. As with all claims of neutrality though, if I remember correctly from my travels in Norway and Sweden, there is a mountain pass called ‘Blood Road’ which supposedly created trade between Norwegians and Swedes, even though Sweden apparently was not part of the war for reasons mentioned above. But anyway, I appreciate your concern in my geographic and political knowledge.
