Red Shield Ride Day 2

Day 1 ended with a nice group meal and guest speakers from local supporters of The Salvation Army Illawarra region educating us on the work the Salvos do in the local area and why the funds are needed. So keep digging deep friends (or foe) and help me exceed my target, I am now over $4,000 raised but want to get to above $5,000 before Melbourne in eight days time.

Day 2 started with some trepidation or excitement we were about to take on Jamberoo Pass which is about 600m of elevation and very steep and then on to Robertson to the famous pie shop. I would go back to the Pie shop again, seriously the climb was tough but worth the hard work with great views over the region. There is always a great sense of achievement in concurring such a climb. With the majority of the hard work over in the first 35k it was then onto Goulburn just a mere 115k away with plenty of rolling hills and country side. It was lovely to be out in the fresh air doing what something many people don’t get the chance to do.  The days stats were 153.6k and 2,178m of climbing. Many weary bodies rolled in Goulburn glad for a rest.

One of the benefits of a group ride is we have our own coffee van meeting us at various points. We were met by the Coffee van at the Jamberoo lookout. I wish I had a personal coffee van for every ride.

Thanks for the continued support, looking forward to day 3 an easier day riding to Canberra. #RedShieldRide #RedShieldAppeal
