Shocking nights sleep due to all sorts of reasons with the main reason being the aftermath of the races. The police presence this morning is quite obvious in the Main Street with lots of cars pulled over and it looks like they have been confiscated or held because there was no-one to drive them home. Lots of young people wandering around in a daze or still rolling with a can of something in their hands. Young girl in the camp site next to ours was dead to the world, still in her party dress from the day before. The Adelaide Cup seems as if it is a big go around these parts and best to be avoided if we ever do this ride again.
All riders were up bright and early this morning including Joan; who I think may have been the first up today as she definitely did not want to sleep in again this morning. We really didn't keep our voices or noise down as most of the other campers had still not gone to bed as yet. All riders had left camp by 7.30 am and this included Mark. Martin & Debra and Joan were some of the first to leave as they are still finding their legs and their fitness levels in the group.
Collis & I had decided to take a donger tonight as they are really well priced, lovely and clean and have an ensuite attached. The owners are just lovely people who can't do enough for you. They asked us if they could take a photo of our group to put it on their face book site. Most riders agreed to participate.
