Red Shield Ride Day 5 Cooma to Eden

Day 5 billed as the first of 3 tough consecutive days didn’t disappoint we rode 172k and climbed 2,058m. Lots of undulations we started in the wet although not too heavy rolling out of Cooma along the Snowy Mountains Way before descending Brown Mountain a beautiful 10k descent, unfortunately one ride did slide out in the wet into the guard rail but miraculously minimal injuries (cracked helmet) and managed to ride on for the rest of the day.

We stopped at Bega for lunch before rolling to Eden. It was a long hard day with tomorrow billed as longer and harder.

We are half way there 5 days in and almost 700k of our 1,400k done But still plenty of climbing left! I would like to say we are doing it tough, but we are not. We have made a choice to be here. We are getting fed about 6 times a day and have warm, dry and safe accommodation every night. There are so many people in Australia who struggle for one meal a day or don’t have safe accommodation and the list goes on. So please help them and donate to the Red Shield Appeal via my everyday hero fundraising page. Thanks.
