Weekly Newsletter 7 August 2018

This week's newsletter has information about the Great Vic Bike Ride, my interview with Run 2 PB, interesting articles, and several date changes/corrections, cancellation and late additions to the running calendar.

Great Victorian Bike Ride

Imagine exploring the best of our Victorian High Country by bike. Adventuring through the mountains of Bright, soaking up the history of Beechworth and riding along the mighty Murray River fully supported.

Each day, pedal your way to a new town, set up your tent and enjoy the campsite atmosphere with 2 on-site bars and live entertainment, before a night out under the stars.

Ride, party, camp repeat, it's how we do it on the Great Vic Bike Ride - come join us!
