Here are the Strava stats forgot to put em on the blog http://app.strava.com/rides/5507252

Going to bed zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

After morning tea is where the ride takes a real nasty turn with 45kmph headwind for the next 100+km’s, even though our next stop for lunch was at Millicent. By the time we got to our lunch stop the team were really starting to feel the conditions. Thanks to our Mum (Leanne) & our wonderful support crew for providing us yet again a fantastic well deserved lunch, and the cup a soup was a great hit!!

Reedy Creek is such a thriving metropolis.

my GPS took me to a lonely dirt road.

Did the wind farm around Millicent and Tantanoola make you suspicious they have lots of windy days there?

Keep well

Tough day by the sounds Reidy! Well done. Will you get the tailwind coming back today?

Hi Reidy,Matthew
sounds like a great adventure, but 150K and 45KPH headwinds !!!. PHEW. Fantastic effort, nothing can stop you now. :-)

Ended up being a 175km ride bazza. Yes bit of a tail wind frank but dark and stormy 

Saw you on the News Reidy. Proud of all you guys!

Awesome stuff guys!!  I rode to Pt Lincoln last year as part of the pedal4paws team and fully undestand what you're going through.  As mentioned in your report, "The pain won't last forever, but the memories will"  Can relate well to the traffic situation, but our near misses were luckily few.  Just remember to stick together.  You're all each others support crew, even if you don't know it.

Keep up the great work!!
