A quick start to the ride with temperatures starting to drop a little. Wickhams hill had few surprises with the usual kangaroos waiting for Quentin on the way up. I saved all the effort for the sprint to the top.
A noticeable strong wind soon became a force 9 front at the top of the range causing all riders in the pack (2) to struggle.
I'm starting to get concerned about the sleeping habits of the wildlife in the foothills - a sleeping koala next to the roadside seen on this trip; a sleeping kangaroo previously.
And just for those who have doubted our photographic legitimacy: here's Brett on that power surge to the top of Wickams (which the sign declares is a "Road to Recovery" ! )
He leaves a lot of rubber on that road by the looks.
