Bass Coast Cycle Challenge November 19th 2011

Postby Giddyup » Sat Oct 22, 2011 1:30 pm

The Bass Coast Challenge is on the 19th of November and I have been riding along parts of the course and videoing them with my helmet camera. I am not involved with the event and I am sharing my videos of the event so you can get an idea of what the course is like especially the scenery. If your internet connection allows please watch them in 720p HD.
This first link shows a map of the course and a profile.http://www.cyclingprofiles.com.au/HTM/R ... C2011A.htm
This first video is of me going up Mt Misery at about the 16km mark, number one on the profile of the ride http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOWuMQptXm8
This second video shows part of the ride http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeTaHnTU6bk it is taken at about the 25 km mark which is taken on the number 2 downhill section of the ride on the cycling profile
This third video is taken at about the 38 km mark which is taken at the number 4 on the profile. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhtinVTt ... re=related
This forth video is taken at about the 50 km mark which is number 7 on the cycling profile. It also shows the left hand turn into Glen Alvie rd which goes towards Wonthaggi which is part of the 85 km ride.

This last video is taken along the beach road home bound section between Cape Paterson and Inverloch.

Is the surface as good as it looks on vid? I needs a bit more persuading to come down that far from the GV. :wink:
It’s more like our thoughts are thinking us than we are thinking them.

The surface is not to bad not as smooth as city streets but fine non the less. Surface is as good as the video shows and the roads are very quite. Not much traffic at all as the videos show.
