Peak # 11
And the last report was peak #7…
It is not my peaking that has slipped off the radar,
But rather my internet communication from afar.
Peak 8-10 will be communicated soon,
But here is #11; up Mt Richardson I did hoon (read hike-a-bike),
Midgies, mud and unrideable (for me) gradient greeted me at the Blowhard track,
It turns out the name is really quite apt!
As I pushed my bike up this rough muddy stuff,
I wondered ‘can I even ride down this?’ or am I wasting my puff!
Eventually I emerged out of the trees,
And into the sunshine and a rather strong breeze.
The final vista was lovely to see
And as I crested the top a 4year old and a 7year old stood smiling at me!
The descent was exhilarating and mainly out of control,
”Relax, eyes up, just let it roll!”
Somehow I managed to stay on my bike,
I made it down mainly biking…with just a tiny bit of hike!
Again this challenge has made me explore;
11 Peaks in and the challenge is still fun,
Especially now with more daylight and hours of sun!
Til next week,
