So, the Do It In A Dress campaign is done and dusted for 2019, the dresses hung up in the wardrobe, the bike cleaned and converted back to normal ‘Ballarat commute mode’, and the last of the donations has trickled in. And all I can say at the end of it all is WOW! What a wild ride…
I woke up this morning with a bit of a hangover, but nothing too bad, and got my laundry done pretty early. I wandered around town for a while, checking out the Bordertown train station, a stop for the Overland Train I’ll be taking back to Melbourne this coming Friday, and was saddened at how run-down and in need of maintenance the neglected but beautiful heritage station was.
The wonderful guys at Cyclescape Ballarat very generously provided a full professional service of my bike completely free of charge to support the charity and I’m incredibly grateful for their efforts, so thanks heaps boys!
I received a very exciting and generous offer of assistance last night from the team at Jakroo Australia, who have offered to produce some pretty sweet custom cycling bib shorts to wear under the school dresses on my ride and in training.
