A GREAT RIDE FOR A GREAT CAUSE...

I'm riding in Around the Bay 2019 to help kids in need!

Because 1 in 6 Australian kids are growing up in disadvantaged homes, where even the basics in life are hard to come by. But by supporting their education, they can break this cycle of disadvantage.

Your donation will give these kids the essentials they might otherwise miss out on like school books, bags, uniforms, shoes and the help they need to keep up at school. Its a great cause!

Plus, your support will give me great motivation to keep pedaling in training and on the big day!

Thanks for your help and don't forget to leave your message of 'encouragement' when you donate :)

Blue Pyrenees Magic 50k

Beautiful day when we checked in at the Blue Pyrenees Estate winery. Sun was shining and the day started out calm. We rode to Moonambel had a cuppa and pitstop at the CFA and then set off for the return journey back to Avoca. The wind sprang up and the last 7km was head mild head wind and I don't do so well with headwinds. But a nice cold drink and a sausage sizzle topped off the day.

BSC Monthly Ride - first 100k ride

Went on the Ballarat Scenic Cyclists monthly ride from Ballarat to Beaufort and return... Unfortunately it was a terrible Ballarat day with 30-40km head and cross wings and it was a struggle especial the last 20k's.

Braved the Cold

Woke up this morning and the day was overcast but blue skies peaking through, no wind so set off to meet the Ballarat Scenic Cyclists at Kirks Reservoir and ride to Bungaree for Coffee and snack.. Luckily the rain held off.. All in all a good ride.

Ross Creek Return with Ballarat Scenic Cyclists

Good ride yesterday, rode to Sebastopol met up with the group and rode out to Ross Creek, lots of pinch climbs, regrouped at Woadyallock primary school for the ride home with a head wind nearly the entire way back. Lunch and then the ride back home. Loved it.

Late Ride

Back on the Kickr tonight...lov'in it...not sure about the heater going while riding though... definitely sweating the calories out.
