A friend just recommended this to me and I thought some here might be interested. It’s an amateur Tour with weekly stages run in different places around Melbourne. I figured it might be a fun way to get a bit of extra motivation to do some km’s during winter It’s free and all you need to enter is strava and a gps.
So this Norbee thing…there’ll be a certain number of riders doing timed runs around a course, say the ‘prologue’ course in Port Melb, all over the same weekend, so probably many at actually the same time…but no-one will really know if the other riders they see around are doing the same thing, or just randoms who happen to be there?
it doesn’t sound like the worst internet startup i’ve ever heard of.
i don’t think they’ll make much money off it though, it’s just strava for people with no friends who aren’t very fit but are keen on riding
Haha all good, I think it sounded better in my head than it actually would be. It will prob be like someone said, a bunch of Freds riding around sorta looking at each other going “are you doing that tour thing…” awkwardly. Tour de France starts in 9 days anyway so strava will run their usual events.
