Back to the stuff that Team Voodoo lounge does best. Talking about riding, and the odd bit of riding. I took part in the Bike Hutt sponsored Hinakura 100 Gravel Grinder, the other week and had a really good time. My story here. Of course, Voodoo Loungers Neil and Ran did their own take on this ride some time ago, and being the the hard men they are, did it one their road bikes. No poncy CX bikes for them.
Revolution Bicycles "Wellington 11 peaks" event. It was an amazing day. I caught up with heaps of my old Kiwi Brevet Buddies, and rode with Voodoo Lounger Andy King, and his buddies Owen and Callum.Our aim was (not to get lost) and have the most fun. I think we succeeded. How could you not have fun with 2650 metres of climbing jammed into 69kms ! Andy was on fire and Callum was faking a strong ride too.
Lest it be forgot, Voodoo Loungers Thomas Lindup and Jonty Ritchie schooled the field with Jonty in 2nd and Thomas taking 1st place on his new Santa Cruz Highball in about 4.03 hours.
On a more international scale Cleetus has been doing what he does best. Going to conferences around the world and collecting bicycling memorabilia from the Day of the Dead . See right.
