GreenWEDGE Cycling rider Don Macrae and his brother Douglas recently did an interesting ride into the High Country starting in Warrandyte, training it to Bairnsdale then up to Hotham via Swifts Creek and back to Warrandyte via Lake Buffalo and Alexandra.
Don put together a ride report on the journey that you may find of interest. I asked Don how he managed his kit for the ride and he told me all he took was a backpack with 7kg of kit plus an under-saddle pouch. He’s also provided a list of the kit he took.
