Peter Goy has seen the Murray to Moyne cycling relay from many different angles.
Mr Goy, a retired GP, first took part in the event when he was living in Shepparton, with his team using the ride to fundraise for a Goulburn Valley hospice.
When he moved to Port Fairy in 2004, he joined Kate Winner's Port Fairy team, and has now stepped into the top job for the 2019 ride.
The Murray to Moyne will take place on April 6-7, and we asked Mr Goy what his favourite things were about being involved in the ride.
Learning all the time
I have been on the committee for two years and they decided to make me president this time around.
I have never been president of anything before so I'm learning as I go along.
It's a balancing act, you have different members with different strengths.
Delegation is important and the main thing is keeping everyone pulling in the one direction.
Port Fairy is unique
It is very abnormal for a town the size of Port Fairy to still have a hospital.
We are so lucky, the hospital is part of the heart and soul of Port Fairy.
Having the Murray to Moyne and the money it has allowed everyone to raise over so many years plays a big part in our town still having such a wonderful hospital and health services.
Off the bike
After riding in the Murray to Moyne for over 20 years, last year was the first time I had missed.
I was riding at Barwon Heads and my wheel slipped in the gravel and down I went.
I thought I had put my hands and feet out to soften the fall but it turned out I hadn't. I landed on my hip and I self-diagnosed straight away that I had fractured my hip.
What I didn't know was the fracture was up high and I had to have a hip replacement. I am back on the bike now but I won't be riding this year.
As part of the committee I will be busy processing teams when they come into Hamilton overnight and then I'll be at the finish line in Port Fairy on the Sunday.
A big job but worth it
I have never come across an event quite like the Murray to Moyne.
It does take a lot of effort to get organised and be part of it but it's very rewarding, it brings great satisfaction.
