Stephanie and Geoff’s Cycling Victoria adventures


Stephanie & I were asked by Cycling Vic. to work the Refreshment & Refuel Stop at Buln Buln East (near Warragul) last Sunday.

We met dozens of riders from last years ride & from the one earlier in the year Marysville-Buxton-Lake Mtn Ride.

The weather was on the cool side with a bit of drizzle early but the 300 riders were keen & grateful to have copious amounts of beautiful, fresh fruit cake, bananas, jelly beans, gatorade & water available before the long climb up to Noojee.

Stephanie & I were run off are feet by cutting up boxes of fruit cake, “breaking out ” the 3 boxes of bananas & putting out heaps of Power Bars & continually topping up the Gatorade & water to feed & satisfy over 300 hungry & thirsty cyclists over a 3 hour period!!  In an “effort to support the sport ” it was very pleasing to have lots of grateful thank yous from all riders. It is terrific to know the cyclists are always happy for our support & work.

Cycling Vic. are always appreciative of our efforts & look after us extremely well.

I understand the featured bike (see photo above) was made in USA of Hickory & Walnut Wood with a Brooks saddle. The rider said it was a very comfortable ride & would get another one if he needed it ! No idea of the cost etc as his time was fairly brief at the Refreshment stop.
