Day 2: A day of challenges

Flooded tents, cold and wet sleeping bags

What a crazy night July 28, as a massive thunderstorm moved through the area. Flooded tents, bins and tents blown over, cold and wet sleeping bags. But the next day cyclists trudged on and biked 130 kilometres to the next camp. Unbelievable determination! Here’s a collection of smiling faces as people coped with the weather.

This weathervane seems to keep pointing towards the rain!
