NixTrader wrote:Those mixed-terrrain Audax rides in Gippsland are interesting. I only found out about those a week or so ago. It's a bit of a puzzle how I missed them. I've been researching this type of rides for about a year, so it surprises me that they never popped up anywhere in my google searches or being mentioned in related articles I've read. I did look at Audax routes, but perhaps only locally - and maybe they didn't come up because they are all in Gippsland. Can't really explain it.
Are you able to confirm it is practical to do those mixed-terrain audax rides on a traditional roadie?

I've emailed more route information to everyone who gave me their email address. So if you would like to come on the ride and didn't get an email you have to email me through the address at the bottom of this page to get on the list.
For added inspiration I suggest you watch livestream of Strade Bianche pro gravel race in Tuscany on Saturday night (7/3).
It's interesting I got a pretty good response from this forum. However, when I posted about the ride in another forum with "network" in the title I got banned and all my previous posts on any topic were removed. It seems the owner of that forum doesn't like it's members being invited on a free ride! Bizarre really.

Day 1 done and dusted. Dusted very appropriate term. Plenty of sliding, but no stacks among the group, not even a puncture. Took a lot longer than expected - lots of interesting scenic places to stop and chat.
Looking forward to next week already.
