    Gypsy & LAM's epic adventure

    Hey guys,

    Just an idea at the moment but I'm after expressions of interest if anybody would be keen to ride with me from Brisbane back to Melbourne, probably meeting with Canonball in Sydney if it goes ahead at the end of Jan 2010

    It's only about 1950kms so I'd say an extra week onto Canonball including a rest day in Sydney.

    Your very keen. As am I :-) but that somewhat scares me.

    A few guys have mentioned maybe flying for Brisbane to Sydney and doing the cannonball run.

    I'd be VERY suprised if the Canonball officially happens again. I'm still keen for Brisbane to Melbourne but really need to suss out dates and sections etc.

    I'd say fixed on the pista but might do it on single speed cyclo cross bike.

    I love the sound of it but I doubt I'd be able to find the time. Full moral support from me - sounds like a wicked ride.

    1950kms. How many days have your roughly thought this might take?

    13 (including one rest day in Sydney) = 162kms per day. If it was two weeks including one rest day it would be down to 150kms per day.

    :evil: Piece of piss if you have a good saddle. :wink:

    Also thinking if it goes ahead I may try and get individual and corporate sponsorship per km and donate some money to charity.

    As I said, just ideas at the moment though.

    I'm really keen to get a big ride under the belt. Epic!! BSNYC would love it.

    It's a bad time of year for me though, either starting back after holidays or moving to Europe.
