    I've always wanted to do a Cape to Cape ride. That is West Cape to East Cape, the Adventure way. I'm thinking about Labour weekend, two days over, then Monday to get home.
    What ya reckon ?

    PLEASE NOTE: This is not an official organised ride. Just a forum to see who may be interested in coming along. If you wish to come you will need to organise your own accomodation etc. I will post where and when we will start and where we will stay. There is no back up vehicle or support of any kind. If there is only a few of us we will run as a group using the corner man/woman system. If there is to man of us for that to work I will talk with Colin about making a GPS file available so you can do your own thing.
    Cheers Phil
