Battle Hill enjoyed excellent conditions for a tough hill ride, with cool overcast weather and only a little drizzle in the early stages. Results can be found on our results page.
Photo upload is proving to be a challenge with images taking several minutes each (usually they only take a little over half a minute each) so it remains to be seen how long it will take to complete the album.
The Photos page has been updated with a link to the album, but if you're looking for photos taken late in the ride it may be a day or two before it gets to you. This estimate based on the total failure to upload on Sunday night followed by paint dryingly slow upload during the business day and so far this evening.
If everything keeps going, even slowly, it will get there in the end, but if it goes too slowly and times out, or there's a network outage between me and Flickr, it's a question of how long until I notice and can restart the upload.
Update: Things turned around over night and the photos upload is complete.
This wraps up the first half of the season. Our first ride in the New Year is a Rata / Leedstown on 10 January - a venue well placed for our northern riders. A ride poster will be published prior to the event.
Ahead of that, our sister club RADRs are putting on their event at Raumai / Santoft. You can check out the details on their Facebook page.
Until the next event, have a safe and festive holiday season.
