I wasn't going to write up after this event because I was a bit disappointed but thought I would, just for my own future reference; looking back, I'm glad I kept going and didn't pull the pin.

This would be my first 100km race. I've done plenty of 50km's, 4hr's, a solo 6+6 and a heap of team enduro's but I'd never stepped up to the 100km. I go OK over short races, like club rounds and 50km's, but I don't have the endurance to go the full distance.

To escape the Orange June cold we have decided to run the social ride on the June long weekend Monday at Back Yamma State forest (between Parkes and Eugowra).

Rod's leading this ride.

Come along to explore the great single track they have on offer out there.

We'll probably stop at the pub at Eugowra on the way back, though maybe bring some food in case we ride too long past lunch time.

Everyone is welcome to come along, the pace will be set by the slowest rider.

Let us know if you are coming along and want to car pool. It's about a 1 hour drive from orange.

Note that phone reception is limited at the forest.
