What a colourful event! There were feathers, tutus, even some strange looking he/shes! Many ladies got into the spirit of the event, including the GoGIRLs (the pink ladies) and dressed up for the occasion. Once we had cheered on the Little chicks in the Sticks, the chicken nuggets and the Chick-a-dees, we assembles for the mass start!
After the race briefing of important points such as “track right’ means stay to the left whilst the person overtakes you on the right (not go right),“stopping” well we can work that one out but remember not to block anyone’s path. A down arrow means a steep descent and more arrows means it’s even steeper with a dismount area! That had some of the roadies worried, who were thinking I thought this was just a ride for fun. Other women were thinking, it’s slower to walk may as well ride! Good on you Helen, that’s the spirit!
Fun it was, but far from a walk in the park.
