"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

I’ve had the good fortune to ride with 3 of the above riders & look forward to catching up with them next week for the Melbourne Rapha Gents Race.
175km of undulating hills & 11km of gravel which we have been pre-warned will take about 8 hours for the fastest team to complete & to expect 4 seasons in one day.
