So there’s a strong chance I’ll be coming up to Sydney on Tuesday the 15th for a little conference on the 16th. I’ll bring a bike, and I’m thinking I might go on an adventure on Thurs-Sun, flying home Sunday arvo.
Two initial questions:
Any ride suggestions? I can be fully unsupported. Or maybe I should just get to know the city a bit.
Anyone got a bunk I can stay in on Tues/Wed/Maybe Thursday that’s amenable to North CBD transit?
I’d be keen to do a city ride any night - we could go for an explore ride and get cheap but good food in china town and have beers at barangaroo . You’re more than welcome to stay at mine, but I have kids & no room except a fold out lounge so you’ll probably get a better offer.
Alex D (etomato) is the man to talk to re adventure riding - there is a good overnighter you could do riding from sydney down through the royal nat park, camp at bundeena (not free but amenities) or little marley (free but no amenities) , then ferry to cronulla, then ride back. Otherwise there is the Wiseman’s gravel grind (single day 90 oddkms) or heading out to the mountains & further for some multiday rides.
Top of my head thinking is Conference Wednesday, hangover Thursday, maybe head out of town that evening or hang out in town? That Wiseman’s overnighter Fri/Sat, hang out Saturday night, fly home Sunday early arvo.
Not to be pushy, but any advances on Rod’s awesomely generous offer of a bed? Get in Tues at about 1840hrs. Might stay with my colleagues on Wednesday night. Will need somewhere to crash on Saturday night too, and maybe Thursday.
Social ride and/or drinks Thursday or Saturday night? Will influence my accommodation plans…
Righto. I booked an AirBNB for Tues/Wed nights. Might go out to the start of the ride on Thursday night. Anyone keen on beers/tucker on Saturday night? I don’t have a bed organised for that night yet either.
