Secret The Basin 1:20 Alpine Challenge Training for 2011, Dec 5th 2010


This is the first time since my Stem cell Transplant a year ago that I attempted to ride the 1 in 20 hill-climb from The Basin in Victoria to the top in the Dandenong Ranges. I use to use it for training for the Alpine classic which is held on the Australia Day weekend in Bright VIC.Its 200km with 5000m of elevation gain. The last one i did was in 2007, before I was diagnosed with Mantle cell Lymphoma.
