Yesterday was a challenging day as we learnt of the death of a rider in an accident on the Great Victorian Bikeride. As you are aware all our students are safe and were nowhere near the accident. Last night we reflected on this experience as a school, paid our respects and looked after each other. We have been so impressed with our students’ resilience and positive spirit.
Today has been a well deserved rest day. A chance to not wake up at 5:30 and get a few hours more kip. Also a great chance to wash out cycling kit and sample some of the delicacies of the local community.
The students have been extremely impressive so far. They have been persistent, motivated and great team members. The improvement since day one has been amazing. Can’t wait to see them by the end of the ride!
