Evening folks!

 

Any of your doing the SxSE Hustle this Saturday, starting from Blockhouse R59? 3 of us will be starting at 7 am, was just wondering who else may have had the same idea.

 

Makes the possibility of getting lost smaller.

Last year was in the middle of a heatwave; my Garmin registered 43.6.

 

This year it seems the cold-front will be here in time to balance the scales.....

 

We'll be doing it on Saturday. Start time dependent on the temperature, probably around 8.

How big is your group? We're think of a 7am start, no difference in the temp between 7 and 8 tbh.

On Saturday the forecast is 12deg at 7am and 9deg at 8. so start at 7.

 

On Sunday 7 = -1 C; 8 = +1 C. Start at 8..

 

That's an important difference!

This seems awesome! I'd be keen to give it a go on Sunday morning with an early start (finishing at 11:00, averaging 20kph...). How safe is the route to do solo? 

 

I wouldn't

Should be OK, but watch the traffic on some of the tar connecting sections if you're alone. There should be a reasonable amount of gravel bike traffic over the course too. This is a nice event to ride in a small group though - race the segments, ride the connectors together. It makes a good day out.

 

Rode it last week and we met at least 4 husband/wife couples riding in the area so there is social traffic around too.
