The riders will be supported by a volunteer who is kindly going to drive with the group and offer check-point support along the route as well as assist us through traffic where needed. The volunteer is first aid trained and will have a first aid kit in the support vehicle. The support vehicle will also have water, bananas and muesli bars to help keep us properly fuelled and hydrated. Unless there is overwhelming objection to a two-stop strategy, we will stop for coffee in Dolls Point and Kurnell. There will also be a photo opportunity at Cape Solander Lookout.
