    So sad. The rest of the ride has been called off due to the weather conditions being unsafe for it to continue. We are all disappointed but we can't do anything about the weather.

    Now to Inverloch by vehicle for lunch and presentations with a little bit of light entertainment.

    It's been a fabulous adventure and already our fundraising has hit a new high, with more funds yet to be received.

    Congrats to committee, the cyclists, volunteers and all the Lions Clubs involved along the way for everything running to plan, on time and with safety. Again thanks to Lions for feeding us and organising accommodation and other details.
