Between laziness and other, seemingly more-important, responsibilities; we start by acknowledging that this has taken far too long to pull together. This write-up acting as a snapshot into the week abroad.
Something that had begun as an idea thrown around almost a year ago, to which was over in the days before the ’17 Christmas burn. We had decided to ride from Devonport to Hobart over 5 days, via a somewhat soul-breaking route, all to sample some sweet nectar of the Tasman Ocean. Some of us had never been to Tassie, let alone sucked down an oyster. This was to be somewhat of a performance analysis and a study of possible future capabilities amongst the team and beyond.
Thus begun The Great Tasmanian Oyster Tour.
In the lead up, one of the chosen few had had their fate sealed by the likes of a ‘large range rover’, which ended Yung Ming’s chances of seeing @deancycle actually make a ride. Another, had decided to take one for the team and extend his knowledge of the foundations that the GPCP is built upon.
Two weeks out. Two down. Seven remain.
With no-one willing to fill the enormous hole left in the group, it was time to move forward.
