Sydney Body Art Ride


So here i am in silver making my big exit into the world of body art at the Sydney Body Art Ride. All for a deserving charity... well yes... that and the $5o bet I made with Therese. The day was heaps of fun although I did sense some irony in that we were standing out in the sun for three hours in an event that was to raise money for a cancer charity. As a ride marshall, I only dealt with one irate car driver (4WD of course). Everyone else loved the spectacle. Going for a swim at Maroubra was just the best. Felt like I was in some strange religious festival as 200+ coloured cyclists ran into the water to wash off their painted bodies.

Thanks for coming along and being one of our Marshals, so glad you had a good time. BTW the paint is 100% UV proof so no cases of sunburn reported yet. Lucky the ride wasn't today, would have been a total wash out.
