Everyone
We are planning this ride around the 86.4km "circuit" inside the Australian Capital Territory for June this year, on a weekend. There are some special challenges - it will be cold. There are 8 fixed speed camera's on the circuit (making more than 150 "passes" to qualify) etc. The rules (http://www.ironbutt.com/themerides/actinsanity/) are clear and require an odo reading and signature for each rider at the end of every lap - we have people who will wait at the Hume Caltex station to sign for you, clean your headlights and provide the hot chocolates! So, if anyone is interested, please email me your details to olafmoonATgmailDOTcom.

Everyone - an update on this ride.
It is now approved by the IBA. The distance must be 1610 kilometers minimum, which will mean 20 laps of the defined course. There are currently 14 riders and 7 observers/helpers or witnesses. We need more witnesses please, to cover the 24 hours - every rider on every lap must have their odo recorded. We plan to have a caravan and other support on site to give shelter to these wonderful people. email me at olafmoonATgmailDOTcom. A raft of riders are helping including Bill, Karl and others - thank you. The confirmed date is 10 June 2017, starting 3 for 3.30am at Hume. If you wish to join as a rider you MUST talk to me first please, as there are some specific requirements for the ride to be correctly assessed and some safety information to convey - starting with 152 speed cameras. We cant wait. Did it remind everyone that it will be COLD. Olly
