Narelle from Le Spit is doing a free 'get fit' series of rides leading up to Around the Bay. Would be ideal for you if you can see your way to getting to the start at Mosman. I will forward you the email if you are interested.
Hi Claire - you will love the 130km Alpine Classic but you will need to train for it. I've moved OS now otherwise would love to have come on some rides. Let me know if you need and tips on some places to go from Sydney to train for this ride-especially doing long hills and rides that take many hours:)
