Nine days, varying weather. Day four was a shocker. Rain, mist, cold, hill climb. Rumors are that 400 sagged at the lunch stop and 17 were hospitalized through hypothermia. Conversation with riders present say that the police did an excellent job, as did the business owners at the lunch stop; they really stepped up beyond the call of normal business. This was later recognized by BNV on Saturday's briefing which I missed but was told about at breakfast today.
Descending in to the mist with sunnies on is something I won't forget in a hurry. A priority now is to get a set of clear lenses for my sunnies (perscription sunnies)
Overall great event, ran like clockwork. Usual issues with showers, none with dunnies. Less said about the food the better but then I'm a massive minority in terms of diet so there's that. Thumbs up.
Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. . . .
