Re: Fixie Century 2015!!! Oct 18

Hi Camilla,

I don't have a fixed gear bike. Would it be acceptable, nevertheless, to participate / join your ride with my normal road bike? Just want to understand how stringent the rules are re: bike requirements. I could promise not to change gears during the ride?

Cheers
Paul

Re: Central Coast via Palm Beach - Saturday, 10 October 2015

Hi Adam,

That's great

Recent experience suggests it takes ~15 min to get from the Marrickville post office square to the corner of Wattle & Broadway

We'll wait regardless. I know Cam is coming from the square at 5:30, and he's got my number if there's any delay / issues

Why don't you join to Palmy, have breakfast and then ride back? That can be at whatever speed/effort you want, as there's heaps of time before getting the 9am ferry
