25 February 2023 Ride

We farewelled Alan Hauxwell at his funeral today. It was a large funeral with several hundred mourners attended. The eulogy was presented in a very interesting, informative and lighted way by his family and friends. Our DSR had honorary mention a couple of times. We will miss Al or Hawks as other know him. I dropped off a condolence card on behalf of our group.

It is the last Saturday of February and this means we will start from Yarragon at 8am.

Our warm weather continues and it will be sunny tomorrow with a medium (50%) chance of showers in the west in the late afternoon and evening. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. The chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon and evening. Winds north to northeasterly 15 to 20 km/h shifting west to southwesterly during the day. Overnight temperatures falling to between 14 and 19 with daytime temperatures reaching 26 to 34.

Fickle weather today and may extend into tomorrow. Forecast for a mostly sunny day tomorrow but with a cooler start. Ride to start from Darnum leaving at 8am. please have your batteries charged and lights on for the ride. May I ask that it would be the time to reflect on Alan Hauxwell passing. It might be time, given most of our age, to have our heat condition checked for pease of mind.

Sad news. Alan Hauxwell passed away today (10 Feb 23) when he apparently had a heart attack while riding down Darnum Allambee Road. Frantic efforts by other riders and the paramedics unfortunately could not save Alan. Condolences to his family and his wider riding mates.
