A special ride with a special person; On Wednesday, February 18th, I had the pleasure of joining Sarah on her ride from Sydney to Melbourne. When I heard that Sarah was riding at the same time as I was driving along the coast (in opposite directions), I could not pass up the opportunity. Those who know me well, will not be surprised! After all I happened to be in the area, with my bike on tow..
Now, I have not sighted rain in about 10 weeks... i mean RAIN, not those unfrequent showers, but no sooner had John and I crossed the NSW border, down it came...in buckets!
John was not happy about me riding in the rain, or on Princess Highway, but I was determined.
I met Sarah at Quaama, and we rode 34 km to Bega; mostly uphill! In the rain! I must say I enjoyed the rain, but not the hills.... John was amazed that I could make it...what does he ethink I've been doing the pst 10 months?
Sarah is riding from Syney to Melbourne to raise awareness for Parkison;s in honour of her father.you can follow her progress on http://www.pedal4parkinsons2009.blogspot.com/.
She is truly amazing, and the 2 hrs spent with Sarah and her partner Adam were too short.
I'm glad I had the experience. Sorry, Yon for ruining your day, but it was too wet to paint or birdwatch anyway!
