Bike for Bibles – 1 Oct – Molong to Bathurst

Another great day in the saddle. I can say that now, but the last 15 km were pretty tough for me. Even my daughter Deb was feeling the pinch at the finish. Would you believe some of the clowns (cyclists I mean) decided to ride round Mt Panorama racing car circuit at Bathurst at the end of the ride.
On our way near Newbridge, we went down a mega hill. It was cool! It was a bit hairy! But it was fun. I was riding just behind daughter Deb and we both clocked 74 kph. Craig did 79 and the two tandems did 82 and 84. Tim managed 88 – the highest speed of any of the riders. This would not surprise his father, Gordon.
In Bathurst we were treated really well. We were comfortably accommodated and extremely well fed by the folk from Bathurst Baptist Church. Thanks Garry and Kim and team. They have a beautiful facility there. We were taken by local folk to their homes for showers. I scored Rachel, Sarah and Eloise’s place. Adrian was my taxi driver. Cool pad guys! Thanks for the HUGE shower/bath. Good to see young ladies training to be teachers of tomorrow’s kids. Keep up the good work. And don’t forget to get that bike out of the kitchen and have a ride on it!
One day to go! Woopee!
