Random Ride #10 – Pie in the Sky, Cowan.

Five Randoms Riders made their way to Cowan between Christmas and New Year to cap off 2016. Those riders were Harley Mark, Harley Croppy (who joined us on the St.Albans ride), Kenneth, Allan and Paul.

The Wollongong lads met at Cholesterol Corner at Fairymeadow before meeting the Sutherland boys at Macca’s Engadine. In true form, Mark who lived the closest was the last to arrive.

We set of at around 9.30am and headed into the city via Taren Point, Brighton Le Sands and the Airport Tunnel. Traffic was quite heavy and I as we approached the tunnel, I didn’t get over to the left in time and we were bound to Botany.
