Who is going to take part in the 2013 Mountains to Beach? Entries are open as of today. Am seriously considering this. Has anyone done it in the past? Just over $2000 for entry and accommodation/meals.

What are your thoughts on it?

I did this in 2011, it was a blast and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

There are some big days there, lots of climb (apparently there are a lot of hills between Thredbo and the Beach) I was in the hurt box a few times for sure, did I mention lots of climb?

I think I was averaging 4-6 hours a week on the roadie and the odd short MTB ride here and there before hand and I finished mid field, I recall enjoying most of it.. with more training I probably would have even enjoyed (had time to even notice) the scenery a lot more.

There were a few that didn't do much training, not sure that they had all that much fun.

Great accommodation, great food, great scenery, great organization, ridding on the beach.. not so great Smiling

Seriously thinking of doing this on a mountain unicycle. Would be very challenging but very rewarding. Pretty sure I would make all the cut ofttimes now that I have a Schlumpf (2 geared unicycle). Going to first see if I can convince a few other one wheelers to join me so I have some company...
