A ride around Darwin Harbor

Finally it's time to get out on the road for a big ride. The Darwin Harbor Cruise!

This Saturday a small group of local cyclists, well actually me and a couple of others will ride from the Northern Suburbs of Darwin around Darwin Harbor, hopefully all the way to Mandorah. Then, if all goes well we'll chuck the bikes on the ferry and enjoy a ride back across the harbor to Cullen Bay and the final leg home.

Would love to join you. Also just want to let you know that Leighton's Cookie has changed its name to The Cookie Mouse.

Thanks Cookie,
Love the mouse!
The ride was strictly for the obsessed or insane. I don't think any rationally minded sensible person would have thought it was fun at all!
Basically this trip was a bunch of novice cyclists committing to a journey well beyond our experience under adverse conditions! I think the phrase 'Mad dogs and Englishmen' applies.
