Thanks to all the people who donated to the Skeleton Coast Tour which was one of the most exciting and challenging things I have ever taken on. I really did discover what’s possible when you have something important at stake.
I am riding again in the Australia Old Legs Tour which is from Albany to Perth along the Munda Biddi Trail with Charlie Lenegan and Mike Paul, we have included the Cape to Cape mountain bike event which will bring the over all total to 1300kms.
End of Day 1 of Old Legs Western Australia Tour – Mundabiddi Ride.
Pete Brodie, Mike Paul and Charlie Lenegan set off on ride from Albany around 8.45 to raise funds for Zane. Jenny Baxter is providing support for the trip. Today saw 91 kms through wonderful countryside between Albany and Denmark – green farmlands, wildflowers, great forests, healthy rivers and beautiful coastline.
Some challenges – strong headwinds, some stiff climbs (total 889 metres), our first puncture (for Mike Paul) and tired legs (except for Pete Brodie – stll fit from his 3000 km Skeleton Coast ride!)
Overnight outside Denmark and continue trip tomorrow.
We have just completed day 5 of our Old Legs Munda Biddi ride to raise money and awareness for Zimbabwe’s pensioners.
Richard Nash and Richard Yates joined us for the day, and will ride with us today as well. The country side we are riding through is spectacular and the weather apart from one day of rain and 11 degree temperature has been good.
We have climbed an average of 1000m each day, which will be good training for the Cape to Cape ride we have next weekend for 5 days!!!
Thanks once again for your support in making a difference. Some pictures of some of the scenery and people we have met on the trail.
