Red Shield Ride Day 3

Day 2 ended with a meal (yes we like to eat) and a chance to hear a story from Cathy’s Story who was helped by the Salvos during the drought. This is where the funds are going, to local communities helping people who really need it. Keep the donations coming in, it is great to finish a ride each day and see that I have received more donations thanks.

Day 3 was billed as an easy day cycling from Goulburn to Canberra, a total of 117k and 913m of climbing. Ok it was a shorter but some nice rolling hills towards the end. For most of the day we did have a tail wind to push us along. Along the way our coffee van greeted us at Tarago for a coffee break and then onto Bungendore for lunch, before rolling onto Canberra. Compared to yesterday it was easier and in Canberra we cycled around Parliament House and had a group photo shoot.

Tomorrow will be a later start as we are attending a Red Shield lunch in Canberra before a ride to Cooma, the current weather forecast looks a little grim, so we hope the forecast is wrong and the weather stays nice. #RedShieldRide #RedShieldAppeal
