A day in the sun chasing the riders down that were participating in this years Distinguished Gentleman Ride,  leap frogging them along the route from Fyshwick, up to Black Mountain, then off to the National Arboretum and then for a quick stop into the Governor Generals residence to say a quick hello to his excellency, General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd).  I must add what sort of an event photographer would I be if I didn’t let him get a photo with me. 🙂

It was a great turn out with the Canberra ride raising $30,000  – Everyone should be very proud.

His Excellency, General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) taking time out to get a photo with your truly.
