EastLink Ride - November 14

I'm thinking of signing up for the EastLink ride in November - has anyone else out there signed up??? A couple of mates have told me that it will be very different to the last EastLink ride - limited places, EastLink closed in both directions, controlled start line.

I'm just not sure whether to enter the recreational ride or the individual challenge??!!!!

Event update

More event information on:
http://www.cyclesportnews.com/aus/in...7752&Itemid=66

In the interests of safety, there will be no merging of cyclists from different start times. Team Challenge riders will start from 6.30am-7.00am; Individual Challenge riders from 7.00am-7.30am; and Recreational riders from 9.30am-10.15am. The event is strictly for cyclists; no runners or walkers will be allowed.

EastLink will be closed from 5am on Sunday 14 November. The motorway is expected to re-open south of the Monash Freeway from around 10.15am and north of the Monash Freeway at 1pm. The Ringwood Bypass will remain closed until around 3pm.

Ended up in the recreational ride and had a fantastic time. The start was well ordered and the organisation seemed very smooth. That second tunnel sure was a test!
