How about a ride in the country with Aussie pro cyclist Simon Gerrans and some of his Orica-GreenEDGE team mates?
The annual River and Ranges Winery Ride is a rare chance to do just that, with a 138km cycle around the Nagambie wine region and the Strathbogie Ranges. Go at your own pace, settle in with your bunch, or give it a nudge and see if you can keep up with the pros during their off-season.
And if 138km is a bit too ambitious, then there’s also 48km, 24km and 8km (great for the kids) distances.
The only Aussie to snare a stage win in all three Grand Tours, Gerro's list of palmares is long and distinguished, including two days in the Tour de France yellow jersey, first in this year’s Liege-Bastogne-Liege, first the 2014 Australian Road Championships, GC number one at this year’s Tour Down Under and second at last month’s World Championships… We reckon there’s a fair bit of ground to cover with Gerro…
Whet your appetite with this minute catch-up, then get on board and book your tickets now.
