Scribe's pics from Duffy's Forest, Akuna Bay, Church Point, Warriewood, Wakehurst Parkway, Forest Way -  86km - 10 crew

 

 

 

 

Grant aka BeanCounter pumped to be leading the charge up that nasty incline returning from Duffy's Forest

Adam seemingly more relaxed, but may be hiding his effort

New chum, Chris aka Flinders with Harry aka KayakMan

Sag Stop outside Thai Restaurant after 22km

 

BeanCounter also led the charge from Akuna Bay to the T junction with West Head Rd

With Martin aka Architect not far a drift.

Rex aka Pimpernel filled the minor placing picking up bronze

Chris aka Flinders putting in the hard yards in pursuit of Pimpernel

Pigging-out at Church Point before heading the Warriewood, Wakehurst Parkway and Forest Way

Alas, Bank Teller missed a few of the crew in snapping this pic at Church Point on a bonza, pristine morn,
but "centre-stage" Martin aka Al Capone probably ain't fazed about some heads getting chopped out.  What a noggin!!!
