2014 – Brisbane to Gold Coast Ride
Another year of riding the Brisbane to Gold Coast (100km Ride). Again with the Team HTFU, also known as Team SAP. We had 3 of us employees, and the main group who organised the Team being partners and associates who appreciate the quality of the knicks (and ride together alot more as a team together)
The new route with the Mt Gravatt industrial Park being bypassed was a great update, and also gave us a great run down to the first pitstop at Eagleby. I think we averaged 40km/h until here. Most of the 20 or so riders stayed together until here
The next section (including Yatala and the Jacobs Well cane fields) seemed to split the group, given the headwind, and stagged start time from the initial pit stop.
We all managed to regroup from the second Pitstop to the finish located opposite Australia Fair. It was a great team formation of 3 abreast, for 6-7 rows.
Note for next one:
1. Get Train Timetable for Return journey
2. Bring Togs and organise an event afterwards.
