This one was a bit eventful; we're all doing better on the backwards riding a bit, the 18xl technical issues seem to have been resolved. All good until we hit the road to Rundle. It was a good run to about half way then I developed a flat on my creaky old ACM2 (only about a year old, but closing in on 5000kms, much of it rough winter driving.) Then a fierce rain came and drenched us and we called it a day and cabbed it back, drenched and with a flat wheel.
Once we got back I switched wheels and we were back on the road again, this time over to a coffee shop (Mill Creek cafe) for some hot beverages and to unwind. One of our group is now riding to the meetup on the wheel, kudos to him, that adds 16kms to his riding total for the day.
Next week we'll have the meetup but the focus will be gearing up to do a quality presentation / demo for the Ritchie Community league the following weekend.
