Oops sorry forgot to text in earlier...Alex & Di in Omarama. New batteries in spot, all go again.

Pascal's retro 1995 ride, 26" hardtail anyone? On it's third Great Southern Brevet no less — in Omarama.

Complete with retro navigation! Paper maps and notes, no fancy GPS or smartphone maps needed here. Guess the weight will slowly go down as he discards the used map sections — in Omarama.
