Well that's another Oppy done, and what a fantastic weekend of cycling in great countryside with great friends. Starting from Sunbury, Lancefield and Strathfieldsaye the teams had a gift from the weather gods and spent the most of the ride in warm sunshine and light winds, except for night time when the sun was a little harder to spot. Our team started in Lancefield then went through Trentham, Creswick, Avoca, St Arnaud, Dunolly and had our long stop in Marong before riding the last 25km to Strathfieldsaye. Corny jokes were always only a Barry away. Our fantastic support crews (when we could keep them out of the pubs and antique stores) kept us well fed and watered, the high lite for me was the Pizza in St. Arnaud, thank you very much guys and gals. For quite a few of the crew the 360 k's and the 180k(in the Petit Oppy) was their longest distance on a bike, so well done. It was great to see every member of the Moores de Lancefield riding the Oppy this year, would have been a good time to have shares in a sunscreen supplier. Thanks to all I rode with for again making this my favourite ride. Congratulations to all of you and thanks also to Martin and Libby and all the Voulenteers for making this, in my opinion, Audax' best ride. On the ride were Andy, Aidan, Trivess, Barry, Paul, Peter B, Peter D, Ken, Joseph, Steve, Glo, Siobhan, Meaghan, Allison, John D, Leigh, Ewan Adrian, Steve, Johan and Myra. Keeping us on the ride were John, Bill, Andrea, Donna and Stuart.
