The 2004 Turondale Postie Bike Weekend
|The weather forecast said
"Hot to Very Hot!" and that is exactly what we got at the Turondale Grand Prix held on Saturday
7th and Sunday 8th February 2004. There was a distinct lack of
interest in riding when the temp had reached 36șC by 11AM. So why not
just sit in the river and keep cool? Plus the fact that another
group had trespassed on "Private Property" to steal our
camping spot meant we had to camp up stream making it difficult to
gain access to the race track. But, we got there and the hot westerly
wind showered them with our dust and noise. That's Karma.
We had a couple of
races on Saturday which was mainly to please the spectators who had
come all the way from Japan to visit the Postie Bike races. After
swimming for the rest of the day we were entertained by didgeridoo
music composed by a few of the local performers while we drank the
night away. After a hot, still night day 2 was even
hotter!!! So only one race took place on Sunday. Most of us just
stayed in the river again.
