Friday 8th March - Flying into Tullamarine Airport in Melbourne we collect our bags and hired vehicles for the 5-6hr drive up to Falls Creek. A scheduled stop along the way to get supplies and lunch in Bright is a must. This beautiful town is the most cyclist friendly place in Australia and the base for our annual training camps. Supplies are limited in Falls Creek so this is the best place to do some shopping and stock up for the days ahead. Once settled into the accommodation we can unpack the bikes and head out for a light spin.
Saturday 9th March - after a good nights rest, we can head out for an easy spin around the lake and check out the views in a leisurely fashion, finishing with a coffee and some essential carb loading for morning tea and lunch. Early afternoon is always a good time to have everything prepared for the big day, full bike check, clothing, sunscreen, nutrition and hydration are all extremely important to your success, it is essential to be as organised as possible. This is also a good time to discuss ride plans and goals and make sure we have everything covered. Sunday 10th March - the BIG DAY - time to put all the training and planning together and enjoy what promises to be a very enjoyable day of cycling through Australia's Stunning High Mountains We will book a restaurant for dinner and enjoy listening and telling the stories of triumph of an epic day out.
Monday 11th March - A SLEEP IN - no rush to get out of bed today, after a well earned rest we can assemble mid morning for a spin down to Mount Beauty and enjoy some coffee and lunch. Climbing back up to Falls Creek at a relaxed pace will be a wonderful final achievement of the weekend, soaking up the scenery of what is a wonderfully scenic climb. Time now to pack the bikes away, have some dinner and enjoy one more night together at Falls Creek.
Tuesday 12th March - Time to make the trip back to Melbourne and catch our flights home.
