Gra Nomad Wanderings

Sunday, July 26, 2009


Somehow I missed out on putting this photo in! Sorry about that. There's Jeff from Dubbo and Russell and his daughter Syan from Ourimbah. Great that they can still smile after riding in the rain and getting soaked!

Pam and Luka arrive back from their Bike for Bibles ride at Yeoval. This was a huge ride for Pam! There were 22 riders involved in the BFB rides on Sat and Sun. Not in the photos: Adam and his 2 girls, Mark & Rosie from Bathurst and Ian from Dubbo.

Deb and her two boys rode both days. Owen (smallest) rode 27km Sat and 20 Sun, while Deb and Logan did 40 km Sat and 20 km Sunday. A great effort.

Graham and Graeme (you can work out which one is which) managed to ride in the rain on Sunday. Didn't seem to worry either of these guys. One's from Nowra and one's from Narrabri.

Jim (Sydney) and Levi (Nowra) look a bit spent! But they enjoyed it all the same.

Well done Joshua and Heidi. Josh had a quicker ride on Sat than he did on Sunday. A great family day on Sunday. Josh is the other half of Pam and Josh from Parkes.

Janet and Andrew came from Cudal for the ride. They drive a Pug! Janet is saddling up for the BFB weeklong ride in October where they'll ride from Goulburn to Cooma, all around that area and then back to Goulburn.

Geoff, Grahame (note correct spelling) and Justin the legend from Orange. Great to have Geoff ride as he is usually a road support bloke. We stayed at the Baptist Church, Yeoval. Thanks folks. The church made a generous donation to BFB as well.

As per the previous couple of years, there were hundreds of people (including kids) who rode in the Mulga Bill ride today - Sunday 26 July - despite the rain!

Last but not least - the important people - our roadies. They support us as we ride and they feed us when we stop (and they even babysit a bit too.) It's that simple. Lyn, Marie, Mary and Fay. Thanks ladies for the great work you did over the weekend to support us riders.

Jim Blaxland is the ride coordinator. If you're interested in a BFB ride or want to know what rides are available in 2010, just contact Jim - 02 9525 8158 or Great!

Great pictures, love the babies all strapped in with their helmets. And the 'roadies', lol. You've got much to be thankful for my friend.
