- There were about 20 riders from Australia, Canada, UK, USA, Brazil, and
Belgium and I was the only female. In fact, I was informed that not only
was I the only female to embark on this ride this time, I was the only
female to attempt the ride ever in the three years it has been run, and if I
finished, I would be the first female finisher . . . just to add a bit of
pressure to an already stressful ride.

- First loop started on October 25th at 6 pm and was 189 kms long from
Anglesea around to Portarlington, Inverleigh, and back to Anglesea. I was
riding in a group of about 8 or 9 people with one particular rider, Ken from
Australia, who knew the route and had a carrying voice to let us know which
way to turn, etc. That was much appreciated!
