3 days to go until we're off! And with a ride to West Head on Sunday planned for me, Cradle Mountain for Peter, and Ben T on his Ironman journey, it's a good a time as any to enter.

Only one week to go before this begins. I'm sure we can get a few more members on board! It all links to Strava so minimal work required.

Re: No shortage of bike racks at Barangaroo

Thank Clover and her planning regs! Permanent lockers are always tricky. People grab them but then barely use them. We had a similar problem at Mirvac. At our building at 420 George St, we can have a locker from Monday to Friday and then need to clear it out. Just takes some logistical management.

Great! Just to re-iterate to everyone that there is no minimum fundraising target. So if you'd like to participate without the added pressure of asking people for money you can.
