Lake Mountain Fire Relief Ride - Push Bike May 2nd

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by donski1, Apr 15, 2009.

  1. Well, some of you turned up for the 'other' ride, sat on your arses and wriggled your right wrists a little to show support. This day is a chance to REALLY show how much you care and how much effort you're REALLY willing to put in. :p

    Come on, who's up for it? I'm guessing there'll be a couple of you at least - good training day for Round the Bay - Rob, Goosh. I've signed up for the 70km, I think the 135km one would just make me cranky!


    Get in quick - entries close April 24

  3. i havent ridden in 2 months. if i had more than two weeks to get back on and train, i'd definately be up for this. i might still be in, but i doubt it. really dont like the idea of hurting myself with a hillclimb from marysville to lake mountain summit...
  4. thats completely nuts. 140km including skyline rd and marysville to lake mountain. talk about suicide :LOL:

    round the bay is a piece of cake compared with this!

    it just gets more and more tempting :twisted:
  5. hey donna.. i saw this posted on the push bike forums and am so tempted to do it.... but only one problem... i dont have it free so therefore can not go... which i am sad about..

    but goodluck for the ride.... i'm sure it will be a whole lot of fun.. with a little bit of pain :)
  6. Well, I'm sure you'll all be terribly relieved to know they have extended the entry registration date out to the 29/4 (can't imagine why).

    So for all you procrastinators, now there's no excuse. C'mon people, it'll make you appreciate your motorbike even more after this.
