I Made it!!



I finally did it!! 200+ kms over 2 days! Feeling pretty good although this afternoon I was feeling as though  good nana nap wouldn't have gone astray!
The ride was good but a huge challenge for my fear factors! I've never ridden on the roads before and all this ride was on roads and among fairly heavy traffic.  Going downhill was the scariest. I had my brakes on all the way which felt a bit 'whoosieish' but I felt somewhat safer as speed, traffic and narrow roads was not the best combination.
Having said that- the feeling of community and team togetherness was fabulous.  The team raised over $60,000 for cancer research- a fantastic effort.  A truly memorable experience and one that I will NEVER repeat!!!
