An exciting and colourful weekend at Kowen Forest in Canberra. The Mont 24-Hour 2014 attracted nearly 3000 riders, and the numbers swelled hugely with their helpers, families and friends. As a teams event, about 500 riders were out on the course at the same time.

An early summer produced beautiful sunny late-October days with a maximum temp of about 30 deg C, and a low of only 11 deg C overnight Saturday kept the fun in night-riding.

Here’s a great people-orientated video coverage from Saturday.
