We did it and we have the medallion too.

I have had a memorable weekend with a group of wonderful women.  We had a ball.Our Around the Bay ride was on Sunday 7th October.  We had to be at the start by seven o’clock and it was the first day of Daylight Saving so it really was an early start.  We managed and were at the start in plenty of time.  We saw those who were doing the 100 km start off but the 300km riders were long gone.  We set off at seven-thirty.

We had perfect weather and it was great to be riding on tarred roads as we usually do our riding on rail trails which can be a bit rough in parts.  It was a terrific day and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  There was a wonderful sense of achievement having finished this ride together.  The camaraderie of all the riders was great.  There were a variety of riders from the very young to the very old. We will definitely be doing another challenging ride like this one.

We stayed in an apartment very close to the start line and I thought you might like to see the view from our rooftop pool.

When we rode over the Westgate Bridge we were not meant to stop for photos but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to prove that I had been there.

Our team, the Metung Bike Chicks, raised $2642.24 for the Smith Family which is a charity that helps kids in need.  A huge thank you to all our sponsors.
