In two days I will have attempted and hopefully complete the Melbourne to Warrnambool bike race. At this stage I an in very new territory. As a novice in relation bike racing when I say anything could happen I mean anything. Between the 200 competitors, the 265km distance, feed stations, support people, tactics and variety of road and weather conditions I am in for a treat. Did I say I am a novice well it could be an advantage and disadvantage. I am looking forward to the experience and certain realise how much learning will be happening along the road.
