A BEN bike. An old 'Benino' with downtube shifters and a whopping six gears at the back. The idea was to give the Bicycle Empowerment Network some coverage and see what an old clunker worth N$450 could do.
Obviously my training has been paying off (thanks Robbie!) because I was able to win hands down (solo about three minutes ahead of the bunch) and had a fabulous time along the way.
Will try and write some more later, right now I have to get out of this inet cafe! Really look forward to getting decent internet again soon...

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
