I was impressed by the amount off people who turned up today! The ride got called and everyone followed through! Awesome guys!
The forecast said rain, thunder and hail...and to my shock and amazement people turned up wearing jeans and hoodies. Each to their own...but this was no day for jeans..oh no!!! There must have been about 30-40 mm of rain fall upon us on the way to franga. Im pretty sure every single one of us was wet through..no matter how much gear we had on!
This is one of our cranky rides that will go down in history! not only for the distance and rain but for perseverance and team effort! Im pretty gutted i had to catch the train home! as a last min decision i tried to catch the pack only to remember a k or so down the road that i had a slow leak..so i limped back towards franga only to have my front tire blow out half way back. I Ended up having a lonely walk in socks (couldn't walk far in road shoes) through franga only to turn up to the station as the train pulled away. EPIC!
So with two flats and sore feet i finally arrived home to a hot shower!!!
Im pretty glad i came along, even with all the rain it was an awesome day and such a fun ride! Stoked!
EDIT- I added Hanson's pics here...H.
