Sister Sharon and her bad habit.

Saturday saw the annual Cycle to the Sun race, which for a the chosen few means early morning aid station fun. We offered holy water, heed, bananas, gel and most importantly a little levity as the athletes rode by.
Having ridden up from Paia, Jami and Nancy's aid station is the first as the riders ascend 10,000 ft to the top of Haleakala. Heaven or Hell?, you decide.... was their theme this year.

A bondage sheep in lingerie? Why not?!

We're not as outlandish as you may think when you see some of the classic fans from the Tour de France. We have way too much fun with this gig, though I think it's safe to say Borat will never be our theme, that being said, any ideas for next year?

great stuff Sharon and crew, for next year how about

1. Everest theme, Tenzing Norgay tribute to Sherpa's?

2. Led Zepplin theme, 'Stairway to heaven'?

3. Dykes on bikes?

I will try and think of some more, presuming I have a bit of time for this......

2. Led Zep....hmmm I've already got the flat cap.
3. No.

That's brilliant - your costumes are always a hoot. I'm most impressed by Jamie.

1. River deep, Mountain high.
2. Flying down to Rio
3. Fly me to the moon
4. Stormy weather

See, I'm a song and dance Mum :-)

Love all the costumes but the bondage sheep gets my vote! Was that a personal message of encouragement for Kiwi Scotty?!

Having reread your post I am left wondering if you have made a typing error! You offer holy water and heed - do you really mean heed or should that word be spelt with an "a"?

Of course, I haven't a clue what I'm writing about being as pure as the driven........
