The 2018 Tour de Frances bike ride was a top event on the June long weekend.
Main organiser Jane Fitzgerald was rapt with the day, which challenged riders to pedal from Apsley to Frances and back again and raised healthy funds for the Edenhope Hospital.
Jane submitted this account of the event:
“Congratulations to everyone who took part in the 2018 Tour de Frances. The skies were blue, the sun was out and even though it was a little bit chilly there were smiles for miles!
“Over $1600 was raised for the Edenhope Hospital and riders came from all over the country to participate.
“Participants and their support crew got to experience the West Wimmera and South East at its finest.
“The Border Inn and the Frances Hotel provided the perfect backdrop for the event and their hospitality was second to none. See you all in 2019.”
