Our cyclists from Ballarat Orthopaedics are at it again.

In combination with Creswick & Clunes  Medical Centres, Ballarat Urology, Central Highland Surgeons & others, our group of 18 riders are cycling from Echuca to Port Fairy, a distance of 520km over two days.

Our team is directing any donations towards John Curtin Aged Care, which is a community owned, non-profit Home providing permanent and respite care to older citizens.From time to time in orthopaedics we care for their patients.  At times, they have helped with the respite care of some of our elderly patients, for which we are truly thankful.

To donate to the cause go to:  In the field “Team” we are 8090 Creswick & Clunes CROCS (Creswick and Clunes local Health Services)

Our lads made it around the bay, the 250km circuit this year.  Weather forecasts were unpleasant, with winds of 50kph expected.  The wind was worse than that, the 100kph peak winds on the day correlated with our crossing from Queenscliff to Sorrento on the old-style open ferry. The 80kph gusts were somewhat frightening down the Mt Martha cutting into Frankston.
