5 DAMS Challenge 2012 Ride Perth 15/04/2012 6:14:33 AM

5 DAMS Challenge 2012 Ride Perth cycled this one with my mate Paul M. Target of under ten hours. We got there with a few minutes to go. Held up with one snake eye puncture and had to mess about at the canning ton Dam. Felt a bit sorry for the two guys there stamping the passports. What happened is the two rides, 5 dams and 3 dams converged and there was not enough water spouts or guys to stamp the passports. Wasted about 12 minutes there.

The event apart from that and coffee van not turning up at lunch stop was brilliantly organised. Great signage, great start set up, great radio tracking – lets have more points – great wraps.
