Sharing my 14 year old epic ride on October 6, 2019, doing 135km to raise funds for disadvantaged school kids.
To get through the ride, I broke down the ride into days;
Geelong to Queenscliff = Monday 35km
Ferry to Sorrento = chill
Sorrento to Safety Beach = Tuesday 62km
Safety Beach to (via hills) Frankston = Wednesday 90km
Frankston to Mordialloc = Thursday 106km
Mordialloc to Albert Park Lake/finish = Friday 135km
On Wednesday, my son started to crack as the road was undulating. He entered the “Pain Cave”, met “The Man With The Hammer”, brought to tears, processed distance traveled with distance to go at Frankston, 90km and he knows the road from Frankston to Albert Park, picked himself up, and completed the ride with gusto! Had me chasing his wheel in the the last 4km!
Huge Chapeau to my son, and is now a legend at his school as a teacher recognized his huge effort!
