And the Results are In

You can find exactly how long you had fun for on Sunday at the this link.
If you have any questions or updates about the times please contact us via the blog.

You can also find a little post on the event here from one of the toughest (and nicest) guys who showed up. Completing the course took it's toll on a fair few people, Justin did it on a fixed gear  with 25s and a single front brake. And then was only minutes off the front group despite 2 flats. Bravo!

This Sunday!

The time for dirt is almost upon us.

It'll all kick off at 10:30am this Sunday at Hurstbridge train station. Register on the day (it's free) and get your map/cue sheet and we'll roll out at 11:00am.

Weather forecast is predicting 20 degrees and cloudy - perfect riding weather. Now's the time to dial in your machine - make sure you're able to carry water and food - you will need it! - and make sure everything's done up nice and tight because it's gonna get bumpy.

If you're catching the train out to Hurstbridge you've got a couple of options :

8:52am from Flinders St. gets to Hurstbridge at 9:58am
9:32am from Flinders St. gets to Hurstbridge at 10:38am

We (the organisers) will be on the first train so feel free to rock up early for a chat.

See ya there!
