Monday's update

Hi, hopefully you are all starting to get excited about the weekend's fun?

The weather is looking marginal - warm but wet:
Make sure you are carrying enough equipment and clothing. Remember this is a self supported event, you either have to carry it or buy it on the way!
The first year the LPB was run there was a pretty cold Southerly that blew in overnight on the Saturday. A few people got caught out and spent an uncomfortable few hours in the public toilet in Little River! There are some very exposed sections so carry a waterproof layer and some extra food. Understand your own experience levels and tolerance for being wet.

As an added bonus this year Rik from VORB has set up a live tracking system which can be found here. Everything you need to know can be found here:!280&app=Word 
Basically you need to sign up to VORB, grab an app for your Android phone (sorry only Android, no iPhones) follow the instructions from the link above.
Make sure you tell all of your friends and loved ones then ride, ride, ride :-)

I am assuming everyone who had registered an interest via email has received the cues, if not flick me an email here

Until tomorrow, Scott
