The '19 Heroic -Heroic helpers and awesome weather !
Light winds graced the weekend after a shower on Saturday morning. So riding conditions were perfect in the mid 20's for every event.
The camp grounds were popular with plenty of Cross watching on the oval. Roads were quiet and the country air clear The Avon Valley is a top bike tourism destination..
South Perth Cycling Club did a bang up job across the weekend. The Volunteers, helpers, friends and new friends make this event Heroic.
Tell your friends you are Heroic, tell them about your weekend of adventure.
And i hope to see you again on October 10 and 11 October, 2020
