Mercer SuperCycole Day 4

Day 4 Blog – Mercer SuperCycle 2018

Welcome to Hump Day. After yesterday’s 197kms, today was a relatively “short” 178kms from Port Fairy to Mt Gambier. Day 4 can be hard work, as the legs burn at every bump in the road (especially after a stop), and the body is just hurting. Today was a slight exception due to the lovely tail […]

The day started […]
