Because there ended up being so many bikes involved (by Australian standards) we split into two groups allowing the hosts of the run to head both sections - this was the start of the first - those of us in the second wave decided not to wear helmets for the whole trip - What were the cops gonna do - stop all of us??

From start to end - the bikes took 4 1/2 hours to pass in one single motion
