Stirling loop. About 16km mostly flat out to Stirling. With a stirling up hill effort to State Highway 1 followed by a fast down hill roll across the Clutha River, through town and the usual hill climb home.
The Clutha River is artificially low today. Could be necessary to allow the Police to search the river bank following a death or it could be that the 'powers that be' have shut Roxburgh Dam to conserve water. These are the piers of the second bridge on this site. Usually under water!
