TUMUT CYCLE CLASSIC - 13 JANUARY
The Tumut Cycle Classic is something of a hidden gem. 400 riders lined up for the 100k or 70k options on delightful back roads outside Tumut totally devoid of any motor traffic (save for the odd wallaby) and spectacular scenery. Weather conditions were hot with little wind of any note. The TCC organisation was excellent (course was well sign posted and numerous drink stations) and the course design second to none. The course itself had plenty of climbing and similar to say an Akuna Bay or a West Head for climbing difficulty, but the absence of any traffic made it a great day out. See you in 2020. BiciSport had four starters in Michael Taylor, Melissa & Peter Budd & Mike O’Reilly
