Spring on Great Ocean Road. Brilliant.

A lovely spring weekend cycling along the Great Ocean Road.
A big ride for me, Apollo Bay to Lorne and back, was tough, but so beautiful!
Such a great area for riding. Hope there are many more rides to come this year.

6.30am. The park at Apollo Bay, ready to go.

Took this photo by accident.
But I quite like it.
Wish I’d been going faster.

A quick break.

Looking for Koalas

Headed back I caught a view of Apollo Bay. Sweet relief!

Riding on the Great Ocean Road with no cars. Heaven.

What an amazing experience, cruising along the Great Ocean Road on your bike with no cars.
It’s only possible once a year at Amy’s Ride which raises funds for the Amy Gillett Foundation.
I did the Medio Fondo (just under 40km from Lorne to Apollo Bay) this year and it was absolutely brilliant. You should try it some time. There’s also a Gran Fondo for the more ambitious- a 120km loops up through Forrest and Dean’s Marsh with a brilliant downhill towards the end.
This stuff makes exercise seriously fun!

Pit Stop at Wye River.

Some crazy cats at the starting line.
