Ride Report

MB GT 300

The Mount Beauty GT 300km ride was a fantastic day. The route offered a large range of challenges from hills to flat sections with great scenery the whole way. Peter Donnan did a great job organising the ride. The entire route was on fairly quiet to quiet roads which was great. The ride was not supported but due to the distances between Mount Beauty to Yackandandah, Chilton, Corowa, Wangaratta, Everton, Myrtleford, Dederang and returning to Mount Beauty all being 50km or less it was quite managable. It was a warm day with a maximum around 33 degrees so it was necessary to take an extra bidon to make sure you did not run out of water. It was a bonus having a store open in Everton and the hotel open in Dederang to get some extra water and something to eat. I would definitely do this ride again and would recommend it to anyone.

Having done the 300km ride this year I would like to have a go at more rides in the series in 2025 like the 600km in particular.
