The rest of the riders stuck pretty much together. We stopped at Fishery Falls (50 km mark) for morning tea on the side of the road in front of the closed hotel. Pretty hot day and difficult to find any shade.
At the end of this leg we are losing Danny (a surprise withdrawal), Lew, Fliss and Jerry. It is a sad time as this has been a really good group who were just so easy to look after and who appeared to enjoy themselves, each other and the scenery.
We have raised $440.00 via the collection tin on this leg. We hope to double that this new leg.
