Some of the team headed up to Bright over the weekend for a change of scenery, training, good times and reasons relating to instagram.
Firstly, some points from this trip:
- Roksalt Fish & Chippery has food clocked on expert. Their salmon salad is the best thing since Thorntons 5,792.5kg chocolate block.
- FYI Crocodiles do not inhabit the Bright creek as overheard by a member of the public
- Chris Lee’s car is a joke
- Bright Cinema is currently showing Fury
- Bright Brewery has great hot chips
- At 1,986 metres, Mt Bogong is the highest peak in the state of Victoria, Feathertop is the second highest at 1,922 metres above sea level.
- The town was first known as Morse’s Creek after F.H. Morse but in 1861 it was renamed in honour of the British orator and politician John Bright. The Post Office opened on 25 January 1860 as Morse’s Creek and was renamed Bright in 1866
With Stu, Nick, Costa, STR newest recruit Chris Lee and African-Wildlife Safaris Nathan Elliot set out to do Bright – Tawonga – Falls – Tawonga – Bright loop, joined by Dan and Adam up Tawonga on their way back. A sensational day out despite a vending machine at the top of Falls stealing $10 off Stu. It was the greater powers way of reminding him not to eat (which OMG did he listen as he consistently smashed us up every climb, every day!)
Saturday saw the same loop again, with the temperature into the high 20’s at 10am. This rise continued as we headed into Bright and started up Falls Creek. A “nice” and unwelcomed headwind up Falls was easily cured by a cold drink at the top – correct change this time.
Sunday was a little easier with the crew rolling out from Bright to The Horn at the top of Mt. Buffalo. A cold drink at The Chalet and it was back down the climb.
Good to see so many others up there! Good luck to those racing Tour of Bright!
