Advice for group ride.

http://www.kintera.org/faf/home/defa...?ievent=222611

Anyone done this ride? I've signed up for the 75 km route and I'm kinda wondering if I should ride my fixed or my geared bike. Also, anyone have any tips about this ride?

Thanks.

Any of the Canadians out there done this ride? Or wannabe Canadians? Anyone got any helpful hints or tips for Gurgus?

75 kms on a fixie- Unless it is flat- Take the geared bike.

Only suggestion for a ride like this is to have a good breakfast- take a couple of snacks with you and drink on the ride- then drink a bit more and then have another drink. If it is your first distance ride- you will not realise how much you have to drink so When you think about it- Have another drink- even if you have just had one.

It is better to sip- and sip and sip. take at least a bottle every hour and If hot- then up it to 2 bottles an hour.
