It's really hard to guess when we will get there Carl. The climb up Montecute and then Torrens Hill and then the fact I'm riding so the pace wont be cracking, more-so appalling. Maybe if we see meet up it will be good luck.

Wendy and  I  will be out there in the morning,  but doing our own thing initially.  If you can give an indication of what sort of time you expect to be at the top of TH Rd we will join you there for the rest of the ride.
