I thought I’d start a new thread for this ride to avoid confusion, and maybe catch the attention of a few new people who might not have ridden with our Sydney bunch before.
Here are the details:
Saturday 10th September August
Meet at Martin Place at 6:45am, leave at 7:00, ride down via Sutherland to the Royal National Park.
Once we get to Otford:
Turn right and ride home via Stanwell Tops. Finish at the Cricketer’s Arms for lunch.
Turn left and ride down to the Scarborough Hotel. Can get the train back from there if need be.
So if the weather turns bad or your legs are tired or you have a hankering for expensive fish’n’chips, the Scarborough option could be good. Personally I prefer the Cricketer’s, but we’ll see what develops.
I’m keen to see some new faces on this ride - I know there’s some of you lurking around. The more the merrier. If you don’t think you can manage 130kms, there are plenty of train stations along the way.
For those who can’t make this ride, ironically a friend and I will be doing this (or something very similar) on Sunday morning, 7am from Georgina x King, Newtown. I am going fixed, my friend on his de rosa roadie.
Was good seeing Rod smash his way around the cyclocross track. Made me very, very tempted to get into that myself. Looked like hard work though, so I’ll probably just talk about it a lot and not do it for a while.
Meanwhile, I don’t understand where that smiley face came from. I didn’t type it, and can’t delete it now that it’s there. wtf?
