Ride News – 7 Peaks Climbs

5 club members traveled to Dinner Plain on Wednesday 14th March to ride the final peaks to qualify for the 7 Peaks Challenge. 2 other members also traveled to Dinner Plain to do some riding.

Brett, Mark H and Ken M climbed Mt Hotham from Harrietville on the 14th and then continued on to Dinner Plain.

Brett, Mark H, Luke, Lindsay, and Ken M rode from Dinner Plain to Omeo and back the following day to complete the final climb and we were accompanied by Ken S & Jennie who drove to Omeo and had a ride from there.

Unfortunately Ken had a puncture which caused a tyre blowout but managed to get a lift  of  approx 20km with a Parks employee back to his car in Omeo. When Jennie got back to Omeo she then rode the climb from the top of ridge out of Omeo back to Dinner Plain, a distance of 35km plus the 44km’s previously ridden.

The 5 members who were riding the peaks have now completed all the climbs and are now eligible to purchase a 7 Peaks Jersey as an acknowledgement of their achievement.
