By the time you read this column, the new Audax year will only be weeks away. By now all members will have the new calendar and will be marking out rides to do to attain personal goals and challenges. If you completed a Noveau series last year the challenge may be to complete a 300km ride. If you completed a Super series last year, the challenge may be to repeat that effort and also complete a 1000km ride. It does not matter at what stage you are in your cycling hobby, the important thing is to have fun completing the journey to your final goal. I know that the goal for many Audax members is to complete at least one Paris - Brest - Paris ride. The challenge of this ride is both mental and physical. The time and money commitment is substantial. Now is the time to start your preparations. Can I suggest that you find members who have ridden PBP, have a chat to them about their experiences and then model your preparation to fit in with your lifestyle. The one thing that I found was that for a long period of time I spent more time on the bike than spending time with family. We need to remember to retain a balance. Having written all of that, just take a look at the preparation that Lance Armstrong undertook to complete another win in the Tour de France. Do you all still remember him “dancing on his pedals” as he sprinted away from Ullrich in the Alps. That man is awesome in what he does. Many sports people have been asked to nominate what their inspiration is. Quite a few say Armstrong, and his book. I can recommend the book. Also have a look at www.lancearmstrong.com for other information.

In the last issue of Checkpoint Barry and Peter Moore wrote about the Lighting rule. The Editor received two responses, which you will find published in this issue. I know that I have harped on this several times over the last two years. This is your club. You, the members, need to give the National and regional committees some feedback on the various issues that face us in administering the Club. The light rule will be further discussed and if the Club rule is amended, you will be required to vote on the matter. Comments regarding the rule should be forwarded to the Club. Also in this edition you will receive a membership renewal. You will see that online renewal is now available. Please renew early to ensure that your insurance coverage is maintained. Until I see you on the road. Safe Cycling.

Cover: A treasured 1999 PBP brevet card. With just 21 months to go to PBP 2003, will you be prepared? Survey results from 1999 in this issue.

Editorial
Bonjour! In this issue we start counting down to Paris-Brest-Paris 2003. Many of you will think it’s a long way off but before you know it you’ll be at the starting line. For first timers I can only recommend that you talk with as many past participants and read as much as possible to inform you about this wonderful event, the Mecca of the Audax cyclist. Bob Bednarz presents Part One of the survey results from the 1999 PBP, which will give you

some insight on how other Aussies have gone about it in previous years. Whilst over 70 members plus entourage are expected to depart for France in 2003, there are many other members who have no ambition for such a big challenge. Fear not, there’s plenty of other reading in this issue, including how to train for your first hundred kilometre ride, by cycling coach Tanya Bosch, as well as a member profile on Sue Lothringer.

With 31 October being the end of the Audax year, there are applications for Nouveau, Super and Dirt Series Awards in this issue. And don’t forget to send in your membership renewal which appears on page 6 of this issue. Finally, good luck to all the Fleche Opperman teams who will shortly be out there at all hours, doing what they love best, or at least doing what someone has convinced them would be 24 hours of fun!

Letters to the Editor
Re: Lighting-Self Regulation or Legislation Entry found for "efficiency" efficiency (n) 1. the ability to do something well or achieve a desired result without wasted energy or effort, or the degree to which this ability is used 2. the ratio of the amount of energy used by a machine to the amount of work done by it. Encarta World English Dictionary & Thesaurus © 2000 Microsoft Corporation. Isn't this terrible. I was too lazy to go and find my dictionary so I grabbed this definition of efficiency online from "hotmail.com"! This definition conforms to my usual definition of efficiency. I am not a lawyer but I would venture an opinion that the rider in question had the most efficient lighting system. Flashing lights give many hours of illumination for the price of a couple of batteries. Their unit price is low (I bought a "Knightlite" front flashing light today for $25, including batteries. I highly recommend it for town riding as a backup for when your steady light goes flat. viz I also run a "Cateye Daylite" which cost about $180 in 1997. I am lucky to get four hours out of one recharge.) The point is that if came to litigation (as many things seem to these days) I feel that the rider in question would easily show that their (flashing) light was efficient. Perhaps the rules should state "effective, appropriate, and adequate lighting". (I am drawing upon
Journal of the Audax Club of Australia

knowledge of World Health Organisation definitions). But enough of the pedantry (n. a pedantic attitude or an example of pedantic behavior). I feel that it is not up to organisers to be responsible for riders behaviour. Certainly they should advise them of the hazards of using inadequate lighting on unlit country roads, and the consent form should reflect this. A formal legal opinion would need to sought. But, if a rider still wants to proceed then let them. Unfortunately this gives rise to the situation we see with bushwalkers and solo yachties, who rescues them? The other problem is the risk they constitute to other riders. If they are leading and can't see the road properly they place the riders behind in danger. With inadequate front and rear lighting there is the risk of not only themselves being mowed down by a motorist who can't see them, but also the other riders whose (adequate) lights are obscured by the poorly lit rider. I train a lot at night on Beach Road in Melbourne. I normally have four to six rear lights plus reflectors etc. I get annoyed when I overtake a woefully illuminated rider and they sit on my wheel. I don't mind them slipstreaming me, that's what we're there for. I do object to them putting my life in danger because they obscure my lighting. I don't sit behind poorly (front) lit riders at night for the same reasons. So, let them ride. Inform them of the risks they constitute to themselves and others. Inform

them that they will be responsible for their own rescue. And, finally, ensure the other riders don't place themselves at risk by riding too close to them when circumstances dictate. (I am not saying place them in Coventry for the whole ride, only when it matters). Yours Sincerely, Leith Brown Sandringham, Victoria (Member #340) PS I use "Knightlite" 5 led rear lights. I have one on my helmet, one on my bike, one in my back pocket (the clip broke a while ago and it's better than nothing), and one mounted on my ankle reflector bands. I buy an extra one at the start of each winter. When riding my "old" bike (1980) I also have a Red Alert magnetic light. This is on permanently.

I refer to the article on lighting in the Winter edition of Checkpoint. It’s an interesting debate. Put the onus on the rider. After all, the organiser is merely a volunteer and doing the riders a favour by putting on the ride in the first place. Why should they bear any responsibility that they don’t have too? As Club rules, the Australian Road Rules should be the minimum, plus a constant and effective front light, plus the reflective vest plus reflective anklets. Then state 2 separate lighting systems are required. Sean Harper

Wandong Winter Wander
Lorraine Allen

National Treasurer

Another very successful “WWW” took place on 8 July 2001. Seventy riders took up the challenge of completing 50km, 100km and 200km distances on quiet undulating/hilly (some may say flat!) roads. Country roads in the middle of winter. The weather was fine, cool (15 degrees) and for those doing the 100 or 200km distances a lot of sunshine. But alas, a little south-easterly, or was that a south-westerly, was also blowing in to make sure no one got an easy ride home. Seymour checkpoint was extremely busy as usual but expertly handled by George with help from Ray, Carolyn and myself. Kate and John kept the Wandong checkpoint open all day so all the tired, weary bodies had plenty of food and beverages at the end of their ride. A couple of mishaps during the day with one guy falling off on the Sugarloaf Creek wooden bridge (trying to ride across) in slippery conditions. This practice is extremely dangerous - I can’t say enough how important it is for riders not to try and ride wooden bridges anytime let alone in the middle of winter when they are damp. Fortunately he was able to ride on with a few scrapes and bruises, and a nasty cut under his eye. A lady rider was unlucky also breaking her chain. She did come off but did not hurt herself. She and her friend ventured on foot and walked in socks, (as she broke her cleat) to Broadford, a mere 20km, and waited for a lift to pick them up. She was still smiling when she returned to Wandong. Mark down on your 2002 Calendar - 2nd weekend in July - WWW. See you all on the road sometime!!!

Welcome Greg Lansom

Greg Lansom is the newest face on the National Committee. Greg recently came forward to volunteer his services as the National Treasurer, a position which is essential to the running of the Club. Greg takes over from Peter Curtis, who kindly stayed on beyond his term until a replacment could be found - thanks Peter! At his first National Committe meeting recently, Greg proudly reported that the Club’s finances are in good order. Here’s a little about Greg...
I began riding with Audax late 1996 with a 200km ride into a howling westerly wind. I think it was a sign of things to come. I ride with the Wollongong Audax group, the Mongrel Dogs. The longest ride I have completed is 1000km and I am hoping to complete the Great Southern Randonnée this year and of course PBP in 2003. Still, the pinnacle of each years riding is the Alpine Classic. I'm sure that my wife Elizabeth, my son Joshua (16), and daughters, Bethany (15) and Rochelle (13) - yes three teenagers, all think I'm more than a little crazy going on the longer rides, but they're very polite about it. (Though they think going to France is a great idea!) I have recently finished a Bachelor of Behavioural Science and I am now studying for a Master of Business and Technology. I work for the NSW Dept. of Community Services and I am currently working on the development of a new statewide computer system.

Windstopper vests and heart rate monitors were the talk recently on the Club’s chat-list. Here’s what the members had to say...
G’day folks I have been using a Ground Effect Windstopper (yellow, no sleeves, mesh back) this winter on my commute up and down to Mt Evelyn, instead of the Dean Woods undershirt windstopper. It is great to be able to zip/unzip the front depending on whether I am climbing or descending, but...... it can be a real hassle to do so cos either I am the wrong shape or the zip is of poor quality. Sometimes when it’s half way up (or down) the wind gets into it and the zip shoots to the bottom as it blows up like a balloon. Once at the bottom it is impossible to drag it back up unless I stop. It would be good if it had one of those old fashion locking mechanisms that were once on flys. Other times I try to do it up and all I succeed in doing is lifting the whole top up and not moving the zip. So as I like the concept of this style of windstopper but not the quality of this product, and cycling no hands like the pros whilst adjusting my clothing is not an option because I am uncoordinated and unbalanced, plus the roads are busy, does anybody know of another product whose zips are easier to manage. Thanks. Alan Tonkin G’day I got the same vest, but have had no problems although I’ll admit to not normally altering its position while on the move. I’ve never had any problems with it changing its position, from say semi opened, during a ride however. As Andrew suggests the zip is light weight (enables the vest to pack down into a pocket). Heavier zips are readily available at fabric shops. With the aid of a stitch picker and a sewing machine it should be relatively easy to fit a heavier zip. Cheers Peter Stoneman

CHAT
The information on this Chat page has appeared on the Audax email chat-list and is published for the benefit of members without email access.
I recommend the Polar HR Monitor series and found them really useful. Especially those that you can download to the PC. Lots of information on the web at:
www.pursuit-performance.com.au/index1.htm

G'day folks Thanks for all the responses about my exposure. I like this one from Nicky Armstrong. I also have one of those vests. I haven't had trouble with the zip unzipping etc but I had a lot of trouble doing it up so I removed it and replaced it with a plastic chunky sort of zip now it is fine. I thought the large chunky sort of zip would be best - being plastic they are quite light weight and being bigger than the normal sort of zips it is not too hard to do up wearing gloves or with frozen fingers. Most fabric shops sell chunky zips. A great idea. Better than buying a new one especially when Peter Mathews has offered (in another response) to sew a new one in for me. Many suggested I should contact Ground Effect which I will do because like everybody else who responded I find their products (apart from this zip), prices, service, responsiveness to be excellent. Alan Tonkin

Pearl Izumi have a similar style of vest that costs lots more - deduce from this what you will about the zipper as I have no first hand experience. A while back I heard that the Australian importer had gone bust or stopped bringing PI in, so not sure how much hassle it might be to find one. They were in practically every bike shop in Canberra at one stage. I also own a Patagonia windstopper that is a little more wintery than the one you describe it has a fleece windstopper front and thermal back (good for Canberra) - and is the sort of quality (and price) you expect from Patagonia. They still make the same style (Flyer) but have now “loosened the fit” according to their latest catalogue. While this might make it more of a fashion item, I expect it won’t perform as well at stopping the rush of cold air down the front - particularly when cycling. Have you tried emailing Ground Effect about their vest? I know their products are cheap, but this sort of rider feedback is the only thing that will prompt them to improve the quality so that it performs as required, when required. Stephanie Maxwell

I have a X trainer Plus. All the best. Noel Cranswick

On heart rate monitors...
G'day all. Does anyone use a heart rate monitor for training, whether on the bike or for other sports. Any recommendations for products or literature?

They are definetly of benefit if you are looking at improving your performances or race times. Once you work out your max rate and resting rate you can get a very clear indication of how you're performing. You do need to read up a bit on percentage zones but you don't have to go too in depth. I use one all the time and find it most useful for knowing when I'm pushing a bit too hard at the start, and whether I've got enough left in the tank to really push that last 10ks. Playing around with breathing and spinning exercises to bring your rate down is interesting and can be invaluble during a big race when you need to back off but still hang on to the pack. You don't have to get Polar either although they're very good. But make sure you get one that has max rate, time in zone and average rate. Yurtie

I have one of these as well. I think it is great, but the zip seemed to get stuck occasionally, however I note that the zip is an extremely light weight version . . maybe this is the trade off. Andrew Maticka

Are they a true benefit, or just for the much more serious athlete? Look forward to hearing respones. Stephen Brown

Preparing for Paris-Brest-Paris 2003 Survey Results of the 1999 Paris-Brest-Paris Summary Report
Bob Bednarz
Following the 1999 Paris-Brest-Paris I agreed to receive and summarise participant's responses to a PBP Questionnaire that would be sent to all participants. This questionnaire broadly covered participant's satisfaction with PBP information sent out or otherwise available, their travel arrangements, pre-ride accommodations, training, cycle equipment used, diet, and ride experience. The participants were also prompted in Question 36 to contribute any additional information. By August 2000 I had received 37 responses representing 39 participants. This report summarises that sample received within one year of PBP. A few additional responses have since been received but were discarded since they did not provide any essentially new information which did not warrant recompiling the statistical summary. Problems encountered in summarising the questionnaire were: (a) many questions were open-ended, so that there were many variations in similar replies. (b) some questions were open to different interpretations. For example, in response to question 34, "What did you do after the ride?" some people interpreted it to mean immediately after the ride and answered by "sleep", "rest", "eat and drink"; while others interpreted it to mean activities during the remainder of their trip. Because the questionnaire did not prompt the respondent's name, less than half of replies indicated authorship. Thus I have been able to acknowledge authorship of only those responses to Question 36 (which appear in APPENDIX I) identified by the author's signature or, in some cases, by inference. I hope that I haven't made mistakes in my inferences. My approach to summarising results is to categorise similar responses to questions and present a count of their occurrences. But I have also tried to highlight any "lessons learned" that were specifically mentioned or that could be inferred. Additional information, and information sources have been included in footnotes whenever readily available. One (unidentified) person included three typed pages of additional comments to Question 36. I have included this in Appendix 2, along with the contents of an e-mail from Charlie Lloyd, AUK, providing information on train travel with bikes in France, and Don Halton's ride statistics.

How to ride a Hundred
Checkpoint welcomes Accredited Level 2 Cycling Coach Tanya Bosch as a regular columnist. Tanya Bosch has coached a number of past Paris-BrestParis finishers and has herself completed Australia’s toughest non-competitive challenge, the Alpine Classic. Each issue Tanya will guide you to building up your distance, whether your next goal is a 200km local randonnee or the 1200km Paris-Brest-Paris. Experienced Audax riders will know that there are many different ways to train for Audax rides, or not train, as some do! Whether you want to follow a specific training regime or just do your own thing, let Tanya share her experience with you.

For many of you one hundred kilometres is a stroll in the park compared to doing twelve hundred kilometres! But there are some who are just starting with Audax and are wondering how to go about training to complete it and still feel human afterwards. One hundred kilometres will take riders anytime between 3 hours to just over 6 hours* to complete. So it is definitely an aerobic event where your body is running on oxygen supplied by your bloodstream to your muscles and is fuelled by fat. The heart has to become more efficient with each beat, the number of capillaries have to increase, the body has to learn to burn the fat rather than glycogen (the carbohydrate stored in the muscle) and the muscles have to develop endurance to be able to contract thousands of times. So how do you determine time in the saddle? It is called FIT. is for frequency which is the number of times you train in the week. This will be determined by the time you have available and the way you recover from each session.

Audax riders should be putting more emphasis on their long ride of the week than other riders.
read by wearing a heart rate monitor. When you are building up your kilometres you are advised to stay under 75% of your maximum heart rate and when climbing hills staying under 85%. There are times in the training year when your intensity can go up but wait until you have completed 100 kilometres! stands for total time. The total number of hours that you ride per week. This is where you should start a training program. Decide how many hours a week you are riding now and aim to build on that. For example you are riding consistently 5 hours a week which includes a 2 hour long ride. Make that your Week 1 plan and then in Week 2 ride 6 hours increasing your long ride by 1/2 hour and your total hours by 1 hour each week. By Week 5 you could be riding a total of 9 hours with a 4 hour long ride. Some will not

be able to increase this by so much so it is important that you keep a training diary to monitor how you are recovering. Week 6 or maybe Week 4 for the very inexperienced should be an easy week by reducing the volume to the level of Week 1 or even below this. So when you start the next "cycle" you are ready for even more volume. The next ‘cycle’ should start at a slightly higher level, for example at 6 hours. If you are doing your maths correctly you should be riding 6 hours by the end of Week 17. Audax riders should be putting more emphasis on their long ride of the week than other riders. So the total of the long ride should be a third to a half of the total number of hours for the week. Make sure you give yourself easy days or even rest days before and after your long ride.

Member attacked whilst riding
From the Editors Desk
A 41 year old female cyclist was attacked on Gobba Bridge, Wagga Wagga (NSW) on Sunday 2 September. The rider, Audax member Lyn Stenhouse, was cycling alone at the time of the incident in broad daylight. Lyn is very lucky considering what may have occurred. She suffered abrasions to her knees, and general soreness, but the major injuries were to her mouth. Lyn landed on her face and as a result had pushed the two top front teeth back and broken the two eye teeth.
Journal of the Audax Club of Australia

According to witnesses in other vehicles, the offenders slowed down,whilst the occupant in the front passenger seat had his torso out of the vehicle. The occupant then put one hand on Lyn's back, the other on her handlebars, drew her towards the car and then flung her into the side of the bridge. It is alleged that the occupants were giving a victory call as they left the scene. Lyn didn't hear the car approach, or slow down, and was unsure of what had happened.

Husband Ray Stenhouse, also an active Club member, was ahead of Lyn with other cyclists at the time. Ray reports that despite the ordeal Lyn is in good spirits and was able to come home on the Sunday night. Lyn had surgery at an orthodontist after being released from hospital. A further visit to an endodontist in Canberra was scheduled. Police were yet to apprehend the offenders. The Club wishes Lyn a speedy recovery from this horrific incident. Ed.

Sue Lothringer
A forty-two year old Structural Engineer with a passion for bridge design, chooks, cycle touring and of course Audax, shares her thoughts with the Editor.
How long have you been riding a bike? I got back on a bike (with 28" wheels and a fixed wheel drive) in my early 20's and became a kid again. I've upgraded my bike a few times since then! I became hooked on cycle touring early, and I think my enjoyment of Audax rides stems from this. How long have you been involved with Audax? I first started with Russell Moore's Green Valley Twin Century rides in Sydney about 1990, and persevered until I completed 200km. My first "real" Audax ride was in 1994 when I completed a 400km ride in the Lithgow-Orange area in sub-zero temperatures. It was the greatest challenge of my life, and proved to my family and friends that I really was a nut case. You did PBP in 1999, how did you go? What sort of preparation did you do and would you do it again? I amazed myself by finishing PBP in 1999, and took 77hrs 30mins. As preparation I completed a qualifying series plus an extra 600km ride and tried doing the 600km rides without stopping for a long mid-ride sleep. I also practiced power-napping, with limited success. My main riding to build up fitness was through touring with full panniers before the event in Europe. I clocked up nearly 6000km and climbed as many passes in the Alps and Pyrenees as possible. This was great for my endurance, but I think did not provide the best preparation for the extremely fast pace at the start of PBP. I was left at the tail end of the 5am group, although to be fair, having a bad dose of the flu at the time would not have helped this either. If I do PBP again, I think I would try a different approach, using a light, fast racingstyle bike, instead of my trusty touring bike. I would also incorporate more "fast 200km rides" into my training.
Journal of the Audax Club of Australia

It was the greatest challenge of my life, and proved to my family and friends that I really was a nut case.

ridden in the Tour de France and the infamous Alp d'Huez, I rode across the Massif Central and Languedoc towards the Atlantic coast at the western end of the Pyrenees Mountains. I then went on to complete Raid Pyreneen, which traverses this impressive mountain range, finishing on the Atlantic coast. This left just enough time for a two week dash through Gascony, the Dordogne, and central France to reach the PBP Audax training camp in Normandy, for a bit of a rest. The touring and PBP were completely different. Cycle touring is something I love as a way to travel through, see and feel the countryside while removing myself from the hassles of ordinary life. This trip was wonderful from the start, travelling through places the average tourist would never venture. PBP was a personal challenge which I had been wanting to accomplish for the previous 5 years. At times it certainly wasn't fun, while at other times the sense of elation at reaching a particular point, catching up to friends or cruising along in the early hours of the morning with a bunch of crazy riders was something I will never forget. At the finish I felt so proud that I had actually made it. What are your other interests besides cycling? Sporting wise I also swim, run, bushwalk and love cross country skiing. At home my favourite pastime is to spend time in the garden with the Chookies (Pennie, Millie, Bonnie, Sootie, Buffie and Zoie) Any parting words?

You did some touring in Europe before PBP. Where did you go and how did that compare with PBP? My 2 month grand European tour began in Vienna and headed eastwards across the mountains of central Austria, through Switzerland and into France. After conquering the French Alps, including many of the passes

Full credit for all my Audax rides and numerous cycle touring adventures must go to my trusty black Cannondale touring bike. He has never let me down, has travelled with me over Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the USA, and to date has clocked up 94,000km (and even more incredibly so has my Cateye computer!!).

Behind the Scenes - a look at the organisation of the Alpine Classic
Rodney Snibson
Many of you will think it’s all so simple You receive your entry form in the mail, fill it in, do some training and arrive in Bright. Your brevet card is there waiting, and off you go, enjoying the food and assistance provided. You finish, having had a great day, and make the journey home in high spirits. But who makes it all happen? What goes on behind the scences? There’s a whole lot of planning going on right now to make sure that your day is a good one. Rodney Snibson of the Alpine Classic Organising Committee writes.

The Audax Alpine Classic (AAC) is the biggest event on the Audax Australian calendar. It attracts over 1000 entrants and raises enough income to subsidise smaller Audax rides on the calendar. The event promotes both the Bright region and the Audax club. The AAC has been on the road for the last 15 years. Tim Laugher and his small crew of helpers constructed an event that continues to grow. Two years ago, Tim retired from running the event to riding the event. On Tim's retirement, an organising committee of Alan Tonkin, Phil Bellette, Peter Martin and Leigh Patterson was formed. Later, Rodney Snibson and Michael Pope joined the committee. The organising committee was innovative. It established the Alpine Classic web page to provide information about the event and to handle online registration. Sam Blight was appointed Web master. In its first year, 30 per cent of registrations were online. Throw and Go cards were introduced for the start and for the 100km of the AAC 2001. The cards allow
*

riders at the start and at checkpoints to be processed quickly. The introduction of marquees at Mt Buffalo and Bright provided shade and comfort for the volunteers. The event was able to handle around 1000 riders. After the AAC01, the committee of Alan Tonkin, Phil Bellette, Whatto, Bob Bednarz and Rodney Snibson had a debriefing session with the team captains to identify problems. The committee has met on several occasions this year to promote sponsorships from various corporations. The committee is now targeting local businesses for sponsorships. The Committee has decided to introduce throw and go cards for all Alpine Classic events. Barcodes and scanning equipment are being introduced to improve the throughput of riders through all the checkpoints. A marquee will be provided for the volunteers at Falls Ck. The volunteers' ride on Friday 25 January will be a supported 100km ride. Alan, Phil and myself have been to Bright for an interview with the Alpine Shire officials,

Alpine Tourism (an AAC sponsor), Coachhouse (an AAC sponsor), Mt Buffalo management, and National Parks. We went to Smoko to look at options for the turnaround at Smoko on the 100km event. Currently, the Committee is updating the Alpine web page, redesigning the throw and go cards and seeking further sponsorships and grants. The Committee is looking for volunteers for the Alpine Classic. The volunteers make the event a success each year. We anticipate higher numbers of riders registering, so we will need around 50 volunteers to help out on the 27 January. We need a Catering Coordinator to organise the rolls, buns and fruit for each AAC checkpoint. If you are interested, contact the Victorian Region Correspondent - Alan Tonkin on alantonkin@optushome.com.au or Rodney Snibson rsnibson@melbpc.org.au .
*Throw and Go cards enable the rider to deposit a numbered card into a box in lieu of having their brevet card stamped.

My brevet card arrived in the mail the other day...

14 July

It looked so plain, so simple. I opened it and read. Inside it only had two entries - Robertson 68, Dapto 104. There was no gusting wind, no rain, no notion of the brave souls who ventured out on a day when many stayed in the sanctuary of buildings. There was no Macquarie Pass and no Cardiac Hill. No pain in the body as the legs pumped away, climbing, climbing. They call this ride the Kangaloon Killer. No debris on the road from the wind damage to the trees. There was no one freezing because they left their raincoat behind. There was no hot coffee, no laughs, no conversation, and no exhilarating descents. Just two simple entries. My brevet card arrived in the mail the other day… I think I'll have to get another.

Lazy Legs Again
Andy Moore
Thirty-six sets of Lazy Legs get stirred up …. again! On July 22 a motley crowd of riders started out from Lancefield to places warmer. The temperature was definitely in the negative, but the lack of any breeze a positive. The frozen fingers and toes lasted for about 10km before we got some feeling back in them. The route from Lancefield goes north to Pyalong and then north-east to Tallarook, just off the Hume Freeway in central Victoria. The talk of a hilly ride didn’t seem to come true to the half-way checkpoint and the coffee and home-made muffins at the Tallarook General Store took the mind off the return trip. Back to Pyalong was great with some climbing, some wonderful scenery and some nice downhills. However, Pyalong is somewhat lower than Lancefield – almost 300 metres in fact! This lead to the undulating and fast first section of the ride becoming a real challenge on the return. The hills seemed to just keep on keeping on.

Scots Raid Oz
Three Scottish riders recently become both the first foreign riders to complete a Raid and the first riders to complete the new Raid Pitjantjara.

Where else could you freeze, see fantastic scenery, climb forever, meet good people and receive good food?
It was with relief that the riders eventually came in sight of their destination. Although in the best traditions of Audax it was uphill to the finish. The after ride food and conversation was much appreciated by all concerned. Exerpts from the ‘comments sheet’: ‘Spectacular scenery’ ‘very enjoyable’ ‘where else could you freeze, see fantastic scenery, climb forever, meet good people and receive good food?’ ‘…see you next year’ and more of the same.

The trio, Iain Elliot, Robert Johnstone and Sally Tattum, of Inverness Shire, Scotland, flew over especially for the trip. As well as the normal adventures riders have in crossing the desert, the trio also rode right into another obstacle - a Police road block. This was a result of the nationwide manhunt for the murderer of a British tourist at Barrow Creek. The riders had seen the news reports earlier but didn’t think they would be in trouble. After much ado the riders still finished within the allowable time limit and had a great trip. The riders will each receive a certificate, personally engraved plaque with their Raid details, and their ratified brevet cards.

Volunteers are unpaid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.
