33-26 Ride Day 4

Day 4 of the 33-26 ride for Charity: Water will go down as one of my single most memorable rides I have done in my life! We pushed off from the very small town of Ebor just after 7am and descended from it’s 1,300m above sea level down Old Armidale road into Nymboida for a coffee break and then onto the city of Grafton. The scenery was nothing short of spectacular and the riding some of the best I have experienced anywhere in the world. After a long lunch (it was much needed) we set off on the Summerland Way towards Casino and the temperature soared to a stifling 43 Celsius which made progress slow. A southerly change created a huge storm cell as we approached 50km to go and within minutes we went from sunny, boiling hot conditions to pouring rain, gusting wind and even the odd lightning strike! We truly had a four seasons in one day sort of experience. It really made for some great stories we will never forget that is for sure! We logged the biggest day so far with 223km, 2,108 meters of climbing and 7hrs 45 minutes of ride time.

Keep flowing the journey and help us change live in Cambodia.
