What a ride - we have been following you on blog and video. Congratulations on the white jersey. Final day tomorrow - all downhill - more or less. Well done on a magnificent achievement and an outstanding fundraising effort.


John Byrne

I’m sure you’re up for the challenge Tom. Enjoy those peaks!


Gordon Bunyan

Its a thoroughly satisfying way to see Australia's small wooded hills and a fine cause! I've tried some of those climbs in a car, and I've been overtaken by bikes coming down the other side (mad?) so I can almost feel how good (?!) you will feel, but Ive never been tempted to do it on two wheels. Good luck and good planning to choose an event with bus links!


Michael Godfrey
