THANKS EVERYONE

Cyril and Wes

Warrandyte is dark till late in the morning these days and so when the riders started showing up early, even in the dark, I knew it would be good roll-up and it was.

So thanks to all those who helped with registration and set-up this morning especially Justin, Cyril, Wes and Austin. THANKS. Its the ethos behind of the the Warrandyte Festival to get in there and help everyone have an enjoyable Festival and cycling is no different. Riders pitched and helped make it a safe, fun and hard ride. Whether they were doing the TT or the 7 Caffè latte passport ride. Riders came from all over, Don rode out from Southbank to do it, others from Eltham, Doncaster and beyond. Of course we had a fair smattering of Warrandyte and North Warrandyte riders in it.

We more than doubled the roll-up from last year and despite the harsh wind on the way out to St Andrews the riders loved it. Results here and photos soon.

WATCH THIS SPACE! 

Marrilyn out bright and early

Untold Peaks…..that’s the Warrandyte Festival Cycling TT

KG tower - not on the WFCTT routeNow there’s a word that doesn’t get used much these days but was big in the ’70s. UNTOLD, used by surfers to describe any number of things, waves, left-handers, reefs, surfers , sharks etc.

I’m using it describe the hills you’ll knock off as you ride the Warrandyte Festival Cycling TT or maybe the number of coffee you’ll have. Maybe we can make it a “must be used cool word” amongst cyclists.

So get your registration form downloaded and signed by your mum or someone else’s.

Remember there’s no prizes but glory and nothing but fun to be had as you smash your mate’s coffee quota or time on the ride. There’s no charity to donate to unless you want to.

Eighteen Days and We Climb

WFCTT poster

The Warrandyte Festival Cycling TT countdown is on, and riders start climbing in 18 days’ time.

Riders will cross the Yarra River at Warrandyte Bridge and commence a 5km climb to Kangaroo Ground.

Cyril Dixon has been out on a reconnoitre of the course.  He has commented on Strava that on

my flat out attempt tonight…. it is a very tough ride. My KOM is not 4th overall after Strava has sorted through everyone that has ridden the loop. Not sure I can go much faster. Had a nice tailwind to St Andrews, and threw as much as i could into it. Really worked hard back into the wind, through Hursty to Wattle Glen. Then spent by the time I got to the hour mark and on the climb back to KG. Held it together for the descent back to Warrandyte”.

So the 41 km ride is not easy – it’s testing. Dan Field completed the course in the best time at 1 hour and 15 minutes. So it will be good to see who turns out to do the ride and whether Dan can beat his record.

For those interested in a more leisurely ride, we’re thinking of a caffè latte passport: how many coffees can you drink from the 7 coffee locations, getting your passport signed at each one on this ride?

  1. The Roundabout Cafe
  2. Smiths Gully General Store
  3. St Andrews – “A Boy Named Sue”
  4. Hurstbridge Wild Wombat Cafe
  5. Wattle Glen General Store
  6. Kangaroo Ground General Store
  7. Warrandyte Bakery
