I'm thinking of doing the route in 2-days, with the 1st day being a 450K ride, stopping over in the Blue Mountains region. Anyone else thinking of starting earlier that day (at 3-4:00 am)? I would prefer to end a 20 hour ride closer to mid-night, rather than early into the dawn on the next day.
Riding a minimal setup on a cyclocross bike and making multiple stops to refuel. Let me know if you're interested! Drop me a line: email@example.com
Not that I've ridden it, but a 22.5kmh average (including all stops) for 20hrs of trail seems unrealistic. I think if you want 2 days you are not stopping at midnight and ride straight on for 40 hours.
On the bright side that also means no camping gear ;)
