As we enter the month of August, we come to the end of this years Tour de AOC rider challenge. So after completing 3 weeks of consistent riding, let’s go back and see what made this years Tour de AOC a great success.
With 38 riders signing up for the challenge, this years Tour de AOC kicked off with a very busy Saturday morning double! Riders took on the 7:30am and 8:30am classes to give themselves bonus points and the perfect head start to the tour ahead.
There were more bonus classes up for grabs this year and with the tough goal of reaching 21 ride points, this made for some very busy classes. Check out Sam’s packed Thursday 6pm class during our opening ‘sprint week’!
Bikes and beers night! A few beers made for the perfect way to celebrate the half way mark of the tour, although not before getting through some tough Wattbike time trials!
This year the Tour de AOC included a pleasant 50km social outdoor ride. As the weather provided perfect riding conditions, it was fantastic to see so many riders of all abilities and bikes come along for the ride.
What better way to finish off this years Tour de AOC then our traditional Champagne Sunday! After a busy and tough Endurance class with Enrica, Champagne was sipped and sprayed as riders celebrated the end of an exhausting but satisfying three weeks of riding.
But there can only be one winner! Those that completed the 21 ride point target over the three-week Tour de AOC went in the running to win some brand new sunglasses from Eye Can C in Williamstown. And the winner is… Jeremy! Congratulations on winning this years Tour de AOC and special thanks to Eye Can C optometry for your support! It’s been an amazing rider challenge!
