    am looking to borrow / hire a spot tracker for a few days in late June.
    not a moto ride, friends are doing a 400km run and I am going as part of the support crew, one idea is to use a spot tracker so that pit crew know how far out they are so can prepare food on time

    thanks

    Bit of an ADV style ride happening on early Sunday morning from and returning to Mt Molloy Pub, a few of us are camping there Saturday and Sunday night to assist a fellow Townsville inmate through the transition into wedlock.

    That's Sunday the 5th of May.

    Cheers

    OK you FNQ mob - and anybody else as well.

    I have really upped the challenge this time,
    I have entered SOLO the wheel barrow race!
    pushing an empty wheel barrow 140km from Marreba to Chillagoe, starting on Friday.

    If you would like to sponsor me - its for the Endoscopy unit at Cairns Base Hospital - here is the link

    and Denis, your mexican $ are good for sponsorship as well!

    Ok, sorted. Bear in mind that a NSW dollar is worth about double what a FNQ is worth 'cause your cash is all faded ( you know like your curtains ) from too much sun so better get your finger out!!

    Oh yeah, Good luck:thumb

    Thanks Denis.
    First half was alright, 2nd half was bit slower. 5hrs 42 today.
    Running with a barrow is a bit different.
    Have done it as a team and that was easier.....
    Also, the foot action is different. Have done a fair bit of running training, but now so much walking.
    65km stage tomorrow.
    Photos later
