Descending and coming off the road, almost in to a tree…
I’d ridden this descent four times in the past couple of weeks with various groups – first a lot of the riders from Easter Suburbs and then with some of the triathletes from The Brats. It’s a nice climb up Tawonga Gap in Bright, Victoria, but equally so on the way down. As I am a safe descender (more interested in my family’s well-being than getting a fast time), I was my usual cautious self. That doesn’t stop surprises happening though.
Coming off the road is about staying calm, and hoping mostly for a lot of luck!
