    sorry to hear you've had an accident hope the recovery goes well. My concussion has been a pain to deal with and I'm still having memory an balance issues almost 3months latter. Take it easy seems to be the order of the day from the quacks but easier said than done. Take care and all the best. :D

    So it's just about long enough for the mental scars to have healed from the C2C.

    So do we do the C2C again this year. ? ?

    And if we do, I think we should make it a C2C 1000. Last year it was just under.

    What ya reckon :evil

    Col and I were having a confab about the C2C 2014. We think we may run it in the opposite direction, Start East cape Saturday and finish Cape Egmont Sunday.
    " but wait, there's more. " we will make it 1000 km cape to cape.
    We will work on the GPS mapping and will get the Garmin maps on Bsaecamp so we can get the mapping working with no hiccups.
    It will be run as we were intending to last year, as a self guided ride, running at your own pace.

    So, get practicing with your gps's.

    Sounds good! Hopefully I'll be able to make this one. If you need any help with routes over this side just let me know.

    Great to hear!

    Cheers
