Re: Easy paced Kurnell ride - January 20

Re: Todays idiot on slowies

Yikes! I obviously missed all the excitement on Saturday (well, if you could call it that).. Glad to hear everyone is OK, if perhaps a little shaken. Excellent video, Geoff - I now know how useful "helmet-cam" can be. Good that everyone kept their cool, that's the best way to get a success...
