The Captain’s Ride 2017: Day Two
Posted - 7 November, 2017
VHR's Managing Director Danny Brooks reports on Day Two of the Captain's Ride.
The Captain's Ride Day Two: Sunshine and High Speeds
Danny reveals of the second day, 'The easiest day of the ride was blessed with sunshine and warmth all day. The peloton (main group of cyclists) were in the groove after day one, and we averaged 27kmh over the course of the day. The ride distance was 110km, but the climbing was relatively easy compared to yesterday.'
Day Two gave the riders another long but enjoyable day through the beautiful Tasmanian countryside. The teams managed to squeeze in a rest stop at a fabulous 50's diner in Deloraine before a visit to very special Foundation supporter in Devonport.
Stay tuned for a big day ahead tomorrow - Day Three of the Captain's Ride will be the most challenging yet!
