Gents,

I’ve been toying with the idea of organising a low key National retro mtb event/weekend in the later part of the year.

Anyone keen for an event like this? If I organise it will be in Hobart so would involve travel for most, but that shouldn’t be seen as a bad thing…


Think thats a great idea..., now to get fitter and make some bikes work properly...

I just did the Otway Classic last weekend. 145km ride + 2 x 2.5km rides to & from the car = a sore bum. :lol:

It was actually a good day, all things considered (it rained for approx. 2 hours). 210km is on a different scale though. I'm yet to be convinced...

yeah im thinking that too, my neice is up for it but i reckon the full distance would be a killer. I reckon a cheeky 100km would be doable.

its 210km on a flat course with a reasonable forced stop in the middle. It's a lot easier than you think.

Seeing as there's 10 of us on here from Victoria, why don't we try to co-ordinate a pre-cursor to Andrew's suare' down in Tassy? Maybe a Sunday morning jaunt @ Rutsterfield once it's re-opened? Who'd be a starter? Dust off the dinosaur & hit the trails?
