Next time, I'm going to make it compulsory for everyone to have their bike with them when they sign in. I briefly met lots of people while handing out the kits... but once you were all on your bikes, I had a completely different frame of reference and had no idea who anyone was again
I had a fantastic day - I got to ride as far as Werribee, thanks to my mate Dave's offer to drive the big purple sag wagon that far. Loved it. Tried to help tow a few of the tail-gunners into Werribee... wow, that road really changes complexion when tailwind turns headwind.
I've just tallied the ledgers, and calculated that the Ballaarat to Melbourne Classic has raised $7511 for the Pallister-Killian Syndrome Foundation of Australia.
(And having announced that, I've had a few more people ask how to donate - so I've pointed them toward http://www.mycause.com.au/events/ballaa ... rneclassic , and let them prove my accounting wrong).
Thanks to everyone for the great fundraising effort, and for the great vibe on the day. Bike people is good people.
