    Go away with your helmet scare stories. The facts speak for themselves. Magpie season is over by the Tour of Tassie.

    PBP Randonneur was very enjoyable and a cotton cap was plenty on my head.

    He is hoping to break TG's record with his current attempt (though I think it unlikely) and will shortly launch a new attempt to put it as high as he can.

    The last 2 PBPs have had 5000 riders and there are 6000 places available. PBP won't sell out but there will be limited start options for later entrants. Such is life.

    Many of Steve's supporters have said that they'll continue contributing so I expect that finances won't be a major factor in whether he restarts or continues.

    There will be some parallax error with that photo that exaggerates the bag width.

    A too long and too boring story. Basically the first draft was too similar to UMCA's point-to-point rules, which are impractical for this sort of record.
