I'd figure on two night laps or so per rider, so 2 hours burn on lights? I think the organisers have places where you can recharge your system though.

Anyone bringing a generator?

Thanks for the checklist John, very handy.

You still planning on going Birdman? If so I could meet you at some point and donate a set of lights for the weekend (or just the battery to cchris2lou), there just a set of 10w and 5w electrons so would do as a back up unless your feeling brave. 8)

Edit: Just noticed you are in the Retrobike B's.

Has a team mechanic(s) been appointed? Also bike washer/cleaner/lubricator/battery charger etc.?

I'm not necessarily volunteering but it is an important aspect to consider as it leaves the riders free to concentrate on their riding and not worrying about their bikes so much.

However, I suppose that RB riders are so attached to their bikes that they may not want anyone else to touch them! :)

that would be great !! I am sure i can get 2 hours out of my Electron but a spare battery would be a safety .
