Rolled up early not expecting any rain but it was drizzeling when i got there. I felt a bit of guilt when richard rolled up as i promised no rain.
I usually start in the creek but gave it a miss as the rocks would have been too slippery for my liking.
Headed of down the usual loop and didn't stop until scorpio, passed a group of amateurs on the way(just one of the three groups we passed).
Half the team went up the rooster track, rest of us were chickens. The rain was light while we did washing machine but it started to come down at the wall. This is the first time we strung washing machine and the wall togther. This meant 10k of heavily overgrown track had to be pushed thru. Several times i heard some cursing and swearing and i'm pretending my name wasn't involved! I stopped at about 11:40 for lunch because i was starving. I'm stitting on a log with the boys, the rains coming down and i think normal people would hate this but i just felt happy and blessed to be riding with a great bunch of blokes. I knew there was some sh1t ahead but having top blokes to ride with instills a feeling of confidence and safety in me when i'm out with them (despit the fact the call me names behind me back).
Nasty had taken a tumble and had a painful hand but the trooper pushed on. We skipped naths creek because of the rain, leave that for a dry day.
About three kays from the cars i got knocked off line by a rock and road straight into a tree, hit the deck and ended up with a wrist in quite a bit of pain, took a couple of panadol and had a gentle ride back to the cars. Wrist seems a bit better now, bit swollen so i thinks it's just a sprain.
