Paceline Update Day 6
After a great night’s rest and another hearty meal courtesy of the folks at Milawa Lodge, the intrepid 25 hopped back on their equally well rested Specialiseds, Treks, Bianchis and a beautiful new Baum and Pacelined it all the way to Mansfield at a “cracking pace”.
Actually, it was a beautiful meander through the King Valley – what’s become known as a cruisy transition day. Several of the group were inordinately pleased that the only climb was little more than a blip…six percent for 11km and then a lovely ride along the ridge and down into the cycle friendly town of Mansfield.
One of the aims of the Paceline ride is to raise awareness about arrhythmias and they were able to do so once again in Mansfield, meeting the mayor and “posing” for the local newspaper. A big thank you to everyone for your time and interest!
Having said that Mansfield is cycle friendly , perhaps an explanation is due: the Shire of Mansfield has gone out of its way to help Paceline this year, with the wonderful Pam at Mansfield – Mount Buller Tourism helping us every step of the way. Once again, the accommodation at the Alzburg was fantastic and the team was lucky enough to have The Produce Store open its doors specially for them last night so that they could enjoy the stunning meals that typify the menu at this warm and relaxed cafe. Being joined by Bruce and the cyclists of the Mansfield Cycling group was an added bonus as everyone got to share tips and tales about the following day’s route.
We would really like to thank everyone in Mansfield for all their help and support and for the friendly manner in which they have become involved in Paceline…we will be back!!
