Groote Eylandt Xtreme Bike Ride
- Umba to Naked Pools

October 3rd, 2010

On October 3rd, the MJD Foundation entered a team of 12 in the Umbakumba to Naked Pools 45 km bike race sponsored by GEMCO and Eylandt Automotive. 

The bikes were trikes and the road was appalling.  The day was fantastic and the team had heaps of fun.

The MJD Foundation's team was the first to hit the road, and took the lead ahead of the Alyangula Cycling Club team.

At times the road was so bumpy that the trikes were trying to throw their riders off, but we made it.
