Ride Report

The ride was sensational! We had 6 people all up, so quite possibly one of the smallest WNBR'S ever held! But you simply wouldn't believe just how much fun, laughter and wonderment 6 people can create! The Gay and Lesbian 'Chill Out Festival' was on during the Weekend, and Daylesford was packed with an extra 25,000 people.

The weather was great, so we did 3 crazy runs up and down the main street, which was lined with people eating at outdoor cafe's, window shopping and taking in the townships beauty (including the naked ones). We rode to roars of laughter, applause, whistles, many many smiling faces and a few in total disbelief!

The traffic was pretty heavy so we also did a couple of extra runs around the roundabout and a backstreet ride for a break!

The Police attempted to impose themselves heavily at first, because they had been told (by somebody) that 150 people would be riding naked, and they panicked! After a 15 minute conversation with them, and a check when we started off, they disappeared and left us alone for the ride, which was fantastic!

An incredibly awesome day! My thanks to Meg and PJ for their help in organizing the event and their wonderful hospitality and for riding with Bon, Kat, Jo, zero and me, you are all sensational, and I can't wait for next year!
