Will it be GOLD GOLD GOLD for Pauline?

Premium Traveler
I'm off again on another Great Victorian Bike Ride. This year it's going through the Victorian goldfields from Ballarat to Bendigo .... The long way around. 550kms. I am a volunteer Route Marshalll again which means I ride out ahead of the registered cyclists (4000 of them !) and direct /control them at a given. Spot along the route. When the last rider has passed ... And that could be well into the day.... I can leave my position and ride the rest of the day's route. It is anywhere between 50 and 100km per day. We camp each night and the organisation transports luggage, provides tents (which they put up and take down for us) and all food for us. Even gluten free food for me!!! Essentially they move a significant sized town each day. They move a 'main street' of little shops, have doctors and physios and publish a news paper, daily.
