Riding to Drysdale on the Bellarine Rail Trail

The conversation ...

Me: I'd like to ride the Bellarine Rail trail sometime.
Him: Why don't we do it Saturday?
Me: You don't think we should just ride to Queenscliff first?
Him: It's only 17km.

Yeah ... 17km uphill most the way ... plus I'd run 13km on Friday. Knees, legs and butt were screaming by the 11km mark. The Big Girl was not feeling well and The Little Girl had bike issues so they stayed home. Hubby, The Boy and I made it though, The Boy on a bike with no gears.

A stop in Drysdale for an iced chocolate and we were back on the bikes and headed back downhill. The 17km home was much easier, apart from the last big hill on Fellows Rd.

I'm counting that as #28 on the list as complete. If we do the ride again we'll put our bikes on the train and ride downhill!
