Day 11. Blinman to Rawnsley Park. 80km.
One of the great cycles of the world through the Flinders Ranges. Duncan and Paul set off at 7 with the rest leaving at 8. It takes Wally one hour to nebulise so he has to follow on. He normally catches up in no time but the undulations and he'd wind took it out of him today. It was the biggest day yet with all the team putting in 11 hours in the saddle. The management at Rawnsley even built a ramp into Dans cabin at 8pm! Ever so kind.
Day 12. Our first rest day. We went for a helicopter ride around Wilpena Pound, one of Australia's great geological features, where the settlers of old used to keep their stock. It is a natural 10km square keep guarded by sheer cliffs. All the team showing signs of weariness. Early night in preparation for tomorrow's 60km of dirt.
