Red Shield Ride Day 6 Eden to Orbost

This is the second toughest day being our longest at 186k and 2,447k of climbing. Our biggest day will be day 9 slightly shorter but around 3,600m of climbing!

Now over half way to Melbourne and a big day ahead the focus was on getting through the day and keeping energy and leg strength for the last 4 days.

Today was hard as expected but with regular short breaks the kilometres ticked by at a steady pace. We did have to do battle with headwinds, rain, cold and constant rolling roads. On the plus side the country side was beautiful and a nice rain forest, your really get to appreciate this more when riding and not sitting in a car. We were all very happy to reach our destination for a hot shower, dry clothes and to clean our bikes.

Thanks everyone for your support and donations. I have now reached my minimum target of $5,000 but I know with the help of friends we can exceed this, so please help the Salvos and donate to the Red Shield Appeal via my Everyday hero fundraising page. Thanks.
