The Norcross Special – http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/145124633

This ride is mapped thanks to a suggestion Rob made  – we’re not following his suggestion exactly  – but the general idea is there. Any complaints about this ride – please see the nominee 🙂

A good rolling ride as prep for Taupo. If you’re riding K2 I would suggest making the hills your “sprint” points.

If you want to have a hammer – then the break point will be the normal Thursday TT start point – you’ve got around 30km to complete  – and its got some hills!

Be careful on the busy roads.
