PICTURES: Friday flashbacks, Bendigo and District Cycling Club road tours 2005 to 2013

IN this week's instalment of Friday Flashbacks we take a look back at the Bendigo and District Cycling Club's road tours from 2005 to 2013.

Now named in honour of long-time club secretary and cycling identity Merv Dean, the senior tour draws cyclists from near and far to race across central Victoria on the Queen's Birthday holiday weekend in June.

The three-day classic is a great test of endurance and skill on the hills, roads, and street circuits.
