Hi I am a member of FarRiders. A club that specialises in endurance challenges, generally with a time and distance window of 24 hours across 1,000km. I have completed three such challenges. It's more about strategy and timing than speed. Also fatigue management.
The next run that's close to Melbourne is to Leeton NSW on May-26.
My plan is to leave The BP in Warrigal Rd Chadstone, at 5:00 Am then via Talarook, Glenrowan, Corowa and Urana. Google Maps shows that this is a little over 500km in about 6 hours, allowing for refueling, leg-stretching and pissing.
ETA at Leeton is around 11:00 AM After check-in with FarRiders and a pub lunch I'll be returning along the same route, ETA in Melbourne of about 18:00
The Victory Cross Country theoretically has a range of 400km on one tank, but I like to top up about every 200km.
Here's their website http://www.FarRiders.com
My FarRider number is #1034 and you can find me and my records by clicking the Members tab.
Who would like to try It?
