Day 1 still continued.
Here they come. Paul said " I'm not going through that f#$%ing thing!"
Ready for action.
After taking the photos I was pulling up the rear. The other guys took the center of the bridge and broke a couple of boards on the ramp. So I foolishly took the slippery pine needle covered plywood on the side and slipped off the edge of the bridge. Got stuck is some big rocks and had to wait for Paul to come back and help pull me out.
Towards the end of the day I hit a dead tree hiding in the leaves and derailed my chain and badly sprained my thumb.
End of Day 1. After the first 36 km took us 3 hours we knew we weren't going to be able to do 300 km. Ended up doing 118 km and got back at 3:30 pm.
Back at the Pine Grove Motel. Good cheap motel in the middle of great country.
While we were inside drinking, Paul was doing a couple of oil changes on his bike to get rid of the water.
At The Northbrook Hotel for dinner.
Now that's a brandy snifter!
