that audax ride was fantastic, big cheers to everyone involved. had a great time and food provided was excellent.
headed out from geelong to clifton springs, few hills but generally pretty good. a couple of riders including me pulled away from the intial 18 or so that were in the first bunch to start. Easy speeds ave 33km to Port Arlington.
Second stage was the most fun and the hardest for me, all flat and along the bayside from Pt Arlington to Point Londsale. Cruising and rotating in a group of 3 riders we hit 42km for quite a long way. Felt the lactic acid build up and worked through it. Great food at the next checkpoint including pikelets, anzac biscuits, slice, bananas, more lollies.
last stage was past ocean grove and barwon heads and the 13th beach road. Some incredible views. Felt pretty good coming into Geelong, but glad to be off the bike
