Day 1 - Adelaide to Victor Harbour

The first day of the ride was climbing out of Adelaide through the hills then down into Victor Harbour.

Did I mention the hills?

The downhills were...exciting in a "Oh God, Oh God, I'm going to die" kind of way.

Although I have to admit the grin was plastered across my face the entire time. :D

The uphills were painful but riding in a pleasant group inspired me to work harder and overall I was quite pleased with my performance.

The scenery was generally superb (and I assume it was during the downhills too but I was really focussing on the road then), and the group and organisers are really nice people.

Victor Harbour is pretty but I didn't get many photos.
