  1. Hi Laurensia
    I have put my hand up to be on team1 with Michelle & Amanda.
    But I need to get the all clear with my broken hand which is still in a cast. I will message you in a week or two with results from hand surgeon

    1. Noting this CRAZY course Laurensia, I reserve my judgment & application until BWA come up with a course that is sound for all abilities & sealed

  2. I believe there is a fault with the map as published by BWA – Hardwick Road does not go through to Weir Road and up the hill to the monster Haddrill Rd climb – it is a dead end. (In case you have downloaded it)
    I tried riding the course today as per the BWA map and had to backtrack to Campersic Rd and then Haddrill Rd. I will contact BWA to clarify it during the week.
    I only just made it up the hill on a 39/28 (including the odd zig-zag) – Strava shows it gets to 23%.

      1. I know the bit you mean Craig – I could see it from my high vantage point and I wasn’t going there only for it to end in tears (mine). It was a ‘road to nowhere’….. (and I didn’t want to spend all day cleaning my bike).

    1. I have contacted Jeremy Murray – CEO of BWA regarding the course errors. They have promised to make corrections and update the published courses in the near future.

    1. The hilly looks like a fun course. Cyclo-sportif riders usually fall off on the flat course, will be great fun having them hurtling down the Campersic Rd descent.

  3. Hi Cyclosportif riders,
