Amy's Gran Fondo is on Sep every year. It's at beautiful and picturesque Lorne in Victoria, 110k's, closed roads and a great ride.

I'll be there and I think Trouty will come too. Accommodation books out pretty quick so get on it if you want to ride.

Entries open on 1st April - it sold out last year. https://www.facebook.com/AmysGranFondo

And you get the chance to win a UCI medal and qualify to ride the World Masters if you come in the top 25% of your age group (if you're 30 or older of course). For me that means I needed to be 45 mins faster than I was last time :shock:

Here's the course (there's a hill) >> http://amysgranfondo.gofundraise.com.au/cms/thecourse

Great - I think the 1st April thing could be a joke. I'm looking at houses now.

So when are you arriving Craig? We're there from Fri night to Mon. Lets go riding on Sat or a dinner Sat night? We're staying in an apartment on the Western side of town, past the pub.

I'm going to this btw - failed to tell anyone. Have so far organised little. Must get onto it. But dinner at the pub sounds good.

Hi Stuart,

I'm only down Satruday evening, staying in Geelong with a mate from uni days. Whirlwind tour this one, got a fair bit on at the same time. Maybe a few beers after the ride Sunday?
