Dolly then proceeded to spray us all with her water atomizer she had rescued from the ironing cupboard.
Dolly was right. We were hot. We had just completed 76 kilometres in 35 degrees plus temperatures and we were baked and slaked.
That first shandy I sunk was the best shandy I had tasted in my life. It was like liquid gold.

Our shake-down ride was a practice for the big one - the 4oth Anniversary CTA Tour from Albany to Perth covering 800 kilometres. The ride was meant to give us a taste of things to come.
A spokeful of thanks to Stan Wiechecki for finding all the best eateries, coffee shops and restaurants.
And a special thank you to my stoker Margaret who kept helping up the Dwellingup hills.
Really looking forward to the push off in Albany in a couple of weeks.
