The weather gods finally had a say, having been extremely generous, in the last month, with only a few wet days! We have decided to take a rest day, as there is a severe weather warning, for Perth to Bunbury.
As we would be on highway for a lot of the ride, it was decided that it did not warrant the risk.
On day 28, we rode out from Bunbury to the Ferguson Valley and through Gnomesville, where people buy and place Gnomes and some of them have a story and some are placed as a memory.
The loop out and back was 72km and I experienced a high point on the last real climb!! Instead of being last over the top, I was first over the top! I am finally finding my climbing legs – not sure where they have been but, rather late than never.
Last night, there were 52 people, who came out in Bunbury, to hear about Zane and the purpose of the ride and a few stories. My thanks to Richard and Shareen Nash, Richard and Cally Yates, John and Lynne Thomson, and to the many others that organised this. It was a privilege to be with such a great bunch of people.
On Sunday, we will be riding from the 100km from Mandurah to Mullaloo Beach, in Perth where we will finish, weather permitting around 4 pm. With this, I will have ridden a total of 2029km and completing my commitment to ride 2000km.
While I will be glad to finish the ride, I will really miss the camaraderie and simplicity. Not having anything to worry about, but riding with great company and just enjoying nature.
Until my last post on the ride, thank you for joining us on our journey!
