The jeans and boxer shorts were more of an issue than the boots :oops:

That said, 60km of cargo biking in those jeans stretched and softened them so as to make them wonderfully comfortable :mrgreen:

*depending whether I can coax any other family members out... in which case we might ride a shorter route together. Maybe 50km with Mrs B on the tandem... with Jr B on her seat on the back?

Definitely up and running today. They even accepted my entry.

I only put myself down for the 50km, planning to take my co-pilot with me:

She would have been more than happy to keep going after a 40km day last weekend (backing up from 20km the day before), so I reckon she'll be up for 50. If she's having a really good day, we might take the long way home for a 75. If she doesn't want to come, I'll probably do the 100. Decisions that need to be made on the day. The BAD people tend to be most accommodating in this regard.

Organised by bushwalkers. They don't want us munching up all the tracks ;)

We're out :cry:

It seems good friends turning 40 are gonna rob me of more than one organised bike ride this yr. Conceivably we 'could' do it, but these ppl are self-catering, and based upon past experience, that'll be a very good thing, so we won't wanna get up at sparrows and head west. Soft? Meh.

As SWMBO said yesterday, "One ride on country roads freezing your assets off a month is enough, eh?"

Are any of you planning to meet up together by any chance?

I don't know if I even thought of doing this ride last year.... there seemed to be so many rides posted on the forum, many of them well beyond my capacity! Now, I keep a close eye-out for them :)
