Welcome to NSW and the start of your L’Étape Australia by Tour de France experience with Mummu Cycling!
Please arrive to the hotel in Gerringong by 12pm, in time to check-in and set up bikes ahead of this afternoon’s spin.
Our mechanic will be on hand to assist with your bike set-up so you’re all set to go!
This afternoon, we’ll be rolling out on an exclusive course recon ride, guided by our experienced team along part of tomorrow’s route. The ride will be at a relaxed pace, approximately 45km, just enough to get the legs into gear and spin out the travel ahead of tomorrow’s BIG day.
On return, enjoy some down time, before we regather for this evening’s group welcome dinner, carbohydrate rich to fuel those engines accordingly!
*Those that are attending the Ambassadors Clinic starring Amanda Spratt and Simon Gerrans, will be transferred to and from the event before dinner.
We’ll then be joined by a local expert that will share knowledge on the parts of the route we haven’t reviewed and any additional tips/advice to ensure you have the best day possible out on the bike, and most importantly – enjoy yourself out on the road!
L’Étape Australia by Tour de France Day!
Today, it’s game day!
136km (or 80.6km) of challenging terrain lie ahead. You’ve done the hard work, so now’s the time to relax and enjoy the ride!
Following a decent breakfast, it’ll be time to kit up and get ready to roll. Our guide will lead you on a short ride from the hotel down to the start line.
The Mummu support team will be on hand pre-start, mid-ride and at the finish, in addition to the official event neutral mechanical support and feed stations out on course. Be sure to load your pockets with gels, bars, any essentials to be safe! Our team will have these at the ready pre-ride for you.
Following the start, we’ll leave it to you to hit the road and enjoy the challenge that lies ahead. You’ll cover some testing, yet incredibly beautiful terrain…be sure to take it all in as you go!
On arrival to the finish, we’ll be waiting with a deserved cold beverage at our Mummu marquee, where you can kick back, toast to your efforts and share your days stories with fellow guests.
We’ll then transfer back to our hotel, where our team will be available to assist with bike dismantle so you’re all set for departure.
*As you’re departing post ride, we’ll have a room in the hotel set aside to store bags pre-ride and for showering afterwards.
We trust you’ve enjoyed your experience tackling L’Étape Australia by Tour de France with Mummu Cycling. Thanks for joining us for the ride and we hope to see you back on tour soon!
