What a day!

Today was the day of the Strong Island Bike Ride.
It was amazing! Hundreds of men, women and children out in the sun riding all sorts of bikes by the coast. I have a few injuries due to turning up early and trying to fill time by jumping stairs. But apart from that and distracting a guy and making him crash, it all went well! Police motor cycles and push bikes escorted us through the route with cars & pedestrians cheering us on.

Here are some photos from the day by Claire Sambrooke. See her Flickr here.

Also, Here's an inspiring video i found thisevening.
