Bright Trip – Day 3
15 riders rode 40.7km from Bright to the end of the sealed section along Buckland Valley. The ride was mainly flat with some undulations in the Buckland Valley section. Everyone enjoyed the easier ride after the climbing of the previous day. Just as we rode back via Porepunkah some light rain started falling and most of the group continued on to Bright for lunch.
The remaining 9 riders rode a 78km ride from Myrtleford to Yackandandah with 2 riders returning via Beechworth. Riders were caught in a storm and were forced to shelter in a cafe at Yackandandah until the rain cleared. Some cyclists have to suffer for a ride.
