Hi all - like many of you I received an invitation to do an 'early bird' entry to this year's Bowral Classic - $195 for the 160km route if you register before 14 May. I enjoyed it in 2016 (it was my first ever event) but thought I'd ask ... why not just do an 'unofficial' version of it on a different weekend?

Think about it ... you wrangle up a driver to cart everyone's drinks and food supplies ahead of the bunch to the next designated refreshment stop ... another driver follows the bunch to be the sag wagon. Everyone chips in $20-30 (or whatever) for petrol. The event is mostly open road anyway (so riding conditions are no different), you're not fighting with another 10,000 cyclists and their families on the same weekend to get accommodation, and you finish the day with more drinking money in your pocket.

Thought I'd put it out there ...

Trouty & I will be doing this again this year but they've added 30k's on to the shorter route which is annoying. Right at my distance limit now at 120k's.

We'll be staying the weekend and doing lunch at Biota dining on the Sat.
