Thanks to ride leader Bill for this report and photos.
Today we had 13 riders who set off for Drysdale. It was a warm and very humid day with rain expected in the afternoon.
Unfortunately Peter Olsen had a flat tyre along the trail in Whittington. While repairing the tyre we were attacked by huge numbers of mosquitoes. The group was sent on and Peter and I stayed to repair the tyre. We were not able to fix the tyre and Peter decided to walk back to the start and I rode on to Drysdale. Peter did get his wife to pick him up and had the tyre repaired at de Grandi’s.
I was killing 5 mosquitoes at a time but they still were unbearable.
Otherwise the riders had a nice coffee and cake at the Zoo and rode back together to the start point.
I would recommend that future rides carry plenty of insect repellent
