The Bundy Clock Challenge
Friday afternoon, you're about to Bundy off eh? The weekend in front.
Well in a few weekend's time you'll be bundying on and bundying off in The Bundy Clock Challenge!
Young whippersnappers won’t know what the hell we’re on about but they will on Saturday afternoon/evening at the Fling this year.
We’re dragging out the old Bundy Clock (Bundanoon-Bundy-Bundy Clock…..get it?) and you get to smash out a 1km lap of fast singletrack at the Event Centre, And we get to see who goes fast, faster, fastest…
Turn up any time between 3pm to 3.45pm and 5pm to 7pm, pay a gold coin donation (to Save the Children of course) and off you go. You clock on at the Bundy Clock to start the clock and clock off on the Bundy Clock to stop it.
Your lap will be timed to the second by Mr Robinson and his Time and Motion team.
You can have as many goes as you like (as long as you donate each time) and everyone who has a go is in the draw for a couple of very decent prizes.
Also the Fastest Man and Fastest Woman will win $200.
For your delectation & delight......
We've been busily stripping the winter coat off the trails these past weeks in readiness for the Fling. If you're heading to the trails in Wingello State Forest these next few weeks ahead of the event then enjoy the freshly naked flow.
NOTE - With the Focus Bikes Stage 2 in Wingello Forest going (mostly) in reverse on the singletrack for the Full Fling this year, keep your eyes open for riders in both directions if out for a spin.
Whilst we know you'll turn up with a bike that's just as ready to race as you are, you'll be happy to know we'll have our good friends from The Fixed Wheel Bowral on hand across the weekend for any last minute requirements.
In the Southern Highlands pre-Fling and need to grab some bike bits, you know where to go!
See yourself at the Final Fling. See yourself in the 100Mile?
Who remembers 2012 and the Narcissist theme? Mirrors placed on the singletrack and addled, fatigued riders wondering who was heading toward them?
Numbers are well up so far for the Final Fling - 40% up on last year. And indeed many seem to be finally doing that Full Fling that you'd been promising yourself you'd do one day.
But strangely numbers in the 100Mile Fling are very low. Perhaps everyone wants to get back for those 4 Pines Brewing Company beers? Given the additional resource the 100Mile sucks up, we're going to cancel the category unless there is a rush of entries by Friday this week.
It's not Italy but.......
Great gathering here in the Southern Highlands yesterday of some of our Biking the Boot crew from 2016 and 2017 Italy tours. Top ride that ended up at St Maur Wines to sample some vino rosso and vino bianco with 82 year old founder Nerio who is originally from northern Italy.
We even rode over the world famous (OK Fling famous!) Bridge of Thighs after which the world famous Bridge of Sighs in Venice was named (to which Biking the Boot visits for a look see)
