It bucketed down this morning. We’re not talking nice pretty grey skies with drizzle. No. We had heavy icy cold rain that made going outdoors an ugly thought. So, after taking my motorbike out to check out new road bikes at some local bike shops, I had a snooze on the couch until the rain stopped. Sure, I could have taken a spoonful of HTFU but it’s not often that I laze around for half a day.
Once the rain stopped I set off into the bush. My sister and I had to hang the last of the checkpoints for tomorrow’s adventure racing training day, which we are putting on. So we met up on the trails to ride around and finish the job. It took about four hours but we got it all done. Just hanging the checkpoints has taken about 10 hours in total. That’s on top of the time taken to find a route, mark checkpoints on draft maps and create the actual maps we’re handing out tomorrow. But it’s all done now.
I took this video on my way home as I rode though some deep water in the grass paddock:
