Don, any water crossing is bad on my bike. That Di2 battery is in about the worst possible place. :roll:

Did you get soaked? :wink: (not that it would have taken any more than 30 seconds to dry off in the heat today).

I really dislike the section from Turramurra and through Hornsby so didn't really want to go back that way. (I was heading to galston gorge)
I gave the bike a good wash when I got home, hopefully I got any traces of salt water off

Haha, Bobbin isn't to bad Tim, especially the Turramurra side...just a leisurely cruise!! Sounds like there was no shortage of salt water about:)

Hmm - was thinking just near Elizabeth Drive, did somebody lose a light... :? :?:

Looked down, oh bugger half of my front light has departed the bike. Oh damn... :shock: :shock: :shock: Amazingly, I found it on the path and still in working order, the battery a little dinged on one corner and the circuit board not damaged nor the LEDS themselves.

I think a new light is in order. :lol:

See you down Prestons around 7:15pm or so?

Racing cancelled tonight... Is anyone riding TNFPR these days, or would I be likely to be going solo?

6:15 sunnyholt?
