Great Southern Randonnée

6th edition - 13-18 November 2016

Great Southern Randonnée 2016

The 6th edition of the Great Southern Randonnée (GSR) will be held during the week from Sunday 13th November to Friday 18thNovember 2016. Distances of 1200km, 1000km, 300km & 200km will be offered.

The 6th edition of the GSR brings some minor changes, but continues with the tradition of fabulous support provided by our enthusiastic volunteers. For the 1200km distance the traditional evening start will be offered, sending riders on an overnight loop of the Bellarine Peninsula first. However riders may also elect to start in the morning and head along the grandeur of the Great Ocean Road first, leaving the Bellarine Peninsula loop until the end.

Qualifying rides will apply for those entering the 1000km & 1200km distances.

GSR Photographers

bob-mchugh-rod-burgess

Bob McHugh and Rod Burgess are delighted to have been invited to photograph this classic Audax ride.

Some may remember them from the Sydney-Melbourne Alpine 1200 in 2013. Bob has been a member of Audax Australia for 16 years and has completed a dozen 1,000 km or 1,200 km events during that time, including the GSR. Rod is something of a vicarious Audaxer, having supported and photographed previous events and heard Bob’s tales of the highs and lows of randonneuring.

Both of them are keen landscape and outdoor photographers. They’ll use a range of equipment and lenses to photograph riders as they move across the countryside and rest at controls. Rather than concentrating on headshots, their aim is to ‘place’ riders in the beautiful scenery that the GSR traverses. You are likely to find them atop an embankment, on a slope below or around the next corner.

They’ll be at the checkpoints too. The vollies are an integral part of the event. They’ll try to photograph as many of you as possible.

They’re looking forward to renewing old Audax acquaintanceships and meeting new riders and volunteers. See you in November!
