From Baviaans to 94.7

 Absence makes the heart grow fonder....

So we were prepared for the Baviaans mountain bike 24hr event, or we thought we were. Teams got together at a farm just outside of Willowmore, and what a lovely stay it was. Enough fresh air for all to breathe in and enough space to pack and unpack the bags and boxes we would use during the event. Even enough packing space for Rodney :-))
Enough sleeping space for all.

Instructions were given by opposition teams, instructions were followed (at the last minute), and bikes were checked over. Hopefully Jake will remember the seat post?
After watching the sun set in a most spectacular way, we were ready for some shuteye and the ride the next day.

Jake and I as the one team and Rodney and Ian  the other team. Lots of drama later, ..... many hours later, Rodney and I emerged from the dusty trails as a new team.
Until next year!

A couple of minor races later we arrived at the annual 94.7 road race in Joh'burg. A very very hot day but lots of smiles at the end.

Hats off to all the "cow riders" raising funds for Choc, arriving at the end in their hot, frumpy cow suits.

This "cow" went one further and made a stand for Movember, the month of moustaches, to create awareness for prostate cancer.

I know, it is impossible to think, but 2010 is going for a nosedive, hopefully ending itself in a spectacular way!
