Friday, October 3, 2008 – 6.58 am

We’ve just had a look at today’s ride and it looks rather tough.

163 kms of uphill.

It’s 7 am in the Nyngan Caravan Park. – conditions are quite warm, with a strong northerly blowing……and it’s just started pouring rain.

Wish us luck!

Go on Springbrook is steeper than that. You can do it.

Hey Guys
Today your going to turn left and start heading up towards home, just a few more days of hard slog then you’ll know your nearly here. Remember pain will go away but you will always have those amazing memories of what you are achieving. If is gets too hot (and 36 deg is hot) try sleeping thru the day pref in an AC room and ride at night. Trust me its safe and all you need is the headlights from your follow vehicle. You will be so refreshed and feel really good with probally less wind. If they can find ice get your crew to ice you down especially your feet and legs. Glad to see your eating like a horse becuase your riding like a stallion. Keep going strong these next few days then you will start realising this monumental achievment.
