    Absolutely loved being led so expertly round the back streets of Ultimo and Darling Harbour by Gilbert as we climbed towards the Bridge just in time to catch the last gallant marathon runners struggling for home. Had never ridden across the Bridge before but will no longer be intimidated - it was the easiest part of the ride. Wendy's (not so) secret garden was the loveliest of places to rest, reflect and admire the view. Brett Whiteley's public art in Walsh Bay and at the Art Gallery of NSW was a bit of a lark but failed to ignite anything for me despite the matches. Still, by then we were racing for home ourselves and that cold beer - or free wine - upstairs at the Carrington with minstrels (a great laugh) and poets (sadly somewhat inaudible) to divert us. Great day out in very good company. A big thank-you to Gilbert and Chris.

    I'm sorry Gilbert but my husband is running the Cyclocross event for Manly Council on Sunday so I can't make this ride. Bummer! It sounds great fun.
