The Bikes just kept coming
They were having fun!!
and more fun!! There we no major injuries but quite a few breakdowns and pick ups for the recovery crews all arranged through our radio network around the track. All worked very efficiently. At the end of the day everyone was happy that another Bike Ride had been so successful.
The Antenna Team, James VK4VS, Lurch VK4HL, Dave VK4HDE, Nigel VK4UA, David VK4DH, Neil VK2GAN, Tony VK4TLA, and Geoff VK4FGGS, set off real early to the Plateau Repeater site. Reason, to lower the old antenna from the shed roof. A very successful exercise.
