After being locked up working from home and
finally almost getting through winter (the weather here has been rubbish since Sunday), I thought it was time for another FRDC ride.
Extensive planning (yeah right) started about 3 weeks ago and it appeared that quite a few were hanging out for a pootle but the weather really was our major concern. Early on we decided that we would make the final decision on a ride either East or West of the ranges depending on the weather much closer to ride day. I then came up with a couple of route options and refused to share them...
Getting closer to D-day we had planned the ride for Sunday in the hope of getting the most riders along but then came weather forecasts with phrases like "weather bomb", "heavy rain", "snow" etc. At last minute we chose to swap to Saturday and that ended up being a pretty good idea.
I arrived first at one of the local BP's to meet the crew and was soon joined by 4 other bikes (and one pillion) while another 2 went to the wrong BP...
