What can be said? The weather was certainly less than clement! But I had committed, and I keep my word. It had been cold and bleak for days, with plenty of rain and wind... and with no scheduled change to the forecast.
Just getting to UNSW for the start of the ride was quite an adventure - navigation on the bike, the weather, and a slow leak in my rear tyre as well. I even 'Euro-styled it*' (rode while using my umbrella) for the last part of my journey to the University, and had so many raincoats and plastic bags!
Painting up in earnest... there I am behind Mr Orange.
