Ron a 73 year old avid Cyclist from Vermont South, Victoria, is the Team Leader for "Rotary Oldies" who ride every Sunday - rain, hail or shine - a different ride each week, ranging from 35 to 75kms. The 73-year-old started riding when he was 53, and says his age is no barrier.
"73 is only old if you are under 50! When you are 73 it doesn't feel old... it's just that everything takes longer."
Ron will be riding the Bass Coast Cycle Challenge, in Victoria, with seven riding buddies - Stuart, Bob, Neville, Wolfgang, John, Barbara and Robbie, Rob's wife.
"Several of the group gave up riding 15 years ago, and have just started riding again this year, spurred on by registering for the Bass Coast Cycle Challenge.
"My wife Robbie took up riding weekly with me three years ago because she wanted to cycle across the Czech Republic to Vienna for a holiday. We have been on numerous cycling holidays since."
"Cycling is a fantastic way to see countries, cities and towns. I enjoy food, and it is a good way to burn calories too!"
"I hope to have an enjoyable and challenging ride with my friends and take in the Victorian Bass Coast countryside, and the coastline in the process!"
