Re: new to the GVBR

..... I have heard the free bike from last years ride was not adequate.......Denise Hi Denise, welcome to the forum. I didn't get last year's 'free bike'.

Hi Penny, How is your knee??? I hope it is improving. After doing Lavers Hill in 2000 and 2004, the view as you come into Apollo Bay will remain with me forever. Especially in 2000 when it was blue skies and hot. When we rode along the Great Ocean Road in 2000, Bass Strait was flat like a mill pond ...

This makes the bike narrower and consequently, you can fit more bikes on the trucks. The bikes are packed upright not horizontal. I sugges...
