I'm planning to make this my return to riding first ride. However I might have to work on Sunday and that would throw a spanner in the works.

I'm in for this Sunday. Hopefully there's enough people interested, otherwise I'll probably go solo and leave a little later..

Ok, so the Slowies RNP ride is back on given the level of interest.

Saw JamesC this morning and he has kindly offered to assist on the ride. The only thing that can stop us will be the weather. Given the descents and water run offs, we usually don't do the ride if there's rain.

If JamesC is here, then roll off will be 5:45 sharp! :lol:

Just a quick reminder, as I am coming along on this, it is a sharp 5:45am start.

If you get there late, expect to chase...

I don't know about the others, but I really enjoyed it.

9 riders rolled out from Marrickville, we dropped on on the Kingsway, picked up another on the way to Waterfall, and lost another there.

It is one of the very few times that I have ridden through the park for pleasure, rather than at a break neck speed.

As enjoyable as last time and a good 112km for me. I think the drop out rate was somewhat related to the stiff headwind we had on the way down to Waterfall and despite the more moderate pace, it still sapped a lot of energy.

Daryl had a courageous first RNP ride with cramps setting in on the first climb and all subsequent climbs. No withdraw and made it all the way back to the Cafe. I suspect the lure of a good coffee had something to do with it. :wink:

I agree with James that people should be punctual, and most other clubs set a time and leave on the dot. It's good practice, discipline and general courtesy.

The only thing I would comment on is that on a slowies RNP ride - it should be a no drop ride to encourage people to take the leap. I wasn't there today so I don't know the circumstances on the 1 we dropped, but I am sure that person was happy to bail out given the head wind - and in those cases it is better to separate from the group (depending who the rider was). Anyway - it is good to see some one like James (who often doesn't recognise what slow is), to be guiding the slowies and being patient enough to enjoy it ,and help Wieyun.

I am sure every one had a great ride......I am so sad I missed it (well kind of). I am sure I would have been the one being dropped if I went. Especially with Killer Camilla and Accelerating Amy, mostly cruising past me at all the Accents.

Just to clarify. Ron volunteered to bail out from the bunch on that long hill in Miranda and was never involuntarily dropped. As observed earlier, he was already struggling on the Grand Pde and maybe it was his off day. Our pace was no faster than the last ride and most of the time it was the regular Slowies who set the pace except for a significant portion after Sutherland when I went to the front to cover the strengthening head wind. Michelle decided to bail while we rested at Waterfall and I was surprised by her decision as she was riding with me at the front in the last few kms and was keeping her pace very well without any signs of strain.

Maybe we could have rode even slower on the way up, but my understanding is that the Slowies RNP is meant for those Slowies who are able to complete Waterfall return with some level of comfort and as a step up and variety from the usual rides. So I wasn't too concerned about people knowing their comfort level and making a conscious decision en-route.

Also, when we went past Terry who was fixing a flat close to Waterfall, it was JamesC who dropped off the bunch and assisted. JamesC further pulled Terry to Waterfall at speed to regroup with us and allowed him to join us for the rest of the ride.

As I mentioned, I wasn't there so can't really comment without knowing the riders and situation. Riders like Michelle and Ron are experienced enough to know when they are not having the best day and in some cases for the group, it is better for people at that point to voluntarily exit as was the case this week. I am thinking purely for selfish reasons.....I would be the one that would hang on for grim death (even though I was spent).......I would hope, and am sure.....you Wieyun would stay with me to the end...even if you had to carry me up the hill.

RNP was a hell of a learning experience! :oops:

I met PAIN and can't say that he is my friend. Grand Parade was certainly a challenge with the head wind and that much harder when you are at the front with Colin (who seems to make it look easy). Riding out to Waterfall has never been so hard for me even though I am starting to spend more time at the front.

As for the RNP section, OUUUUCH! Just finished the decline into the heart of the RNP, then not even 500m my calves started cramping. With Wei Yun's words of encouragement and having persisted through a series of climbs, I pretty much had to stop every few hundred metres to stretch out my legs. Having never experienced such pains in so many muscles simultaneously, calves, quads (inner and outer), hamstrings, and whatever the muscle that leads up the inner leg to the groin, I quickly learnt and understood where my pain barrier lies.

Thanks to James and Wei Yun for their tips and encouragement...and to everyone else to have the patience to wait for me to catch up. This weekend was a great example of the 'no drop policy' and the mateship of DHBC.

As for next RNP, I'll have to see what my condition is like...more magnesium, more salts, and more hills training. :lol:

Great ride today to Akuna Bay. Thanks Geoff. May well have done my Easter hill quota! Today I'd say an unlikely RNP starter on Sunday. Small chance with persuasion possible!

Because of the road works, this ride may be in doubt. I was talking to Michael about it this morning at the Cafe, and an option that we came up with was to Ride to Waterfall. Descend and climb to Garie Beach turnoff, and then turn around and back to Waterfall.

It would be possible for some riders to turn around at the bottom of Waterfall.

The other option would be to do a Bundeena run. Here is a map and profile.

http://www.mapmyride.com/route/au/marri ... 3127142964

I mapped to Bundeena and then did an Out and Back option, so the return isn't quite right.

This is slightly longer than an RNP ride at about 100km (as opposed to about 96km). It would avoid the road works. The biggest issue with this is the extra climbing that would occur going out of Bundeena, and the fact that you would have contend with Artillery Hill. I'll let Geoff explain that one...

For something really different. You could try riding to Bundeena and then catching the Ferry to Cronulla and then riding back from there. Cronulla would be about 20-25km from Marrickville, so it would be a shorter ride at about 70-75km, but it would certainly be something a bit different. The only problem with this is that the first ferry is at 9am, so it would be a later leave to try and line up with this, and then a later arrival back at Marrickville.

Another option, I don't know the distance, would be descend at Waterfall, turn right, and then loop back at Oak Flats (I think that is what it is called, where one of the rest stops is on the Gong Ride). Then climb back up out of Waterfall.

I think that with a bit of creativity, the ride can go ahead, but it is up to those who are going to lead it, and what those who are going to ride it would like to do.

News Flash

Mike C returns from the dead and will taking this Months Sunday RNP slowies ride.

This is a special once off ride, we'll be entering RNP through the Audley entrance and heading for Bundenna. 4k further than the normal RNP ride, this gives you a metric century at 100k.

This is a no drop ride, anyone who has previously ridden to Waterfall should consider having a go. There will be an experienced rider taking up the rear on each of the hills, to make sure that everyone is taken care of.

I'll be available to fix flats (I need the points) and help with any other mechanicals.

See you at Mick Mazza's at 5.45am on Sunday.

Hi all,

I'd love to come on this RNP ride, but unfortunately unlike most of you lot..........my mum and mother in law would kill me if I didn't make the mothers day lunch in time. So unfortunately I will have to stick with the usual waterfall ride. Is there a slowies and middies going this sunday?

Good job everyone! Orphic handled Artillery Hill very nicely while Park earned an immediate promotion to the Fasties bunch, bypassing Go! Michelle snapped the saddle rail on her loverly Colnago but was able to make it back without drama. Lovely section after the Bundeena turn-off and the road surface was just so much better than the rest of RNP. The surrounding view was 10/10 too. It was unfortunate that we got caught by the rain but did get a chance to ride the 70 years old Bundeena ferry and a ticket discount. TimL and Park rode back in the rain but the rest of us will be back for the return route.

Some photos (excuse the quality)... At the Cafe in Bundeena and on the ferry.

Sounds like you had a fun day and I could be up for it in spring! It absolutely pissed down on the Waterfall bunch on the way home - I couldn't even see the road when we coming down The Boulevard, along Rocky Point Rd and on Sandringham St. My eyes were killing me even with glasses on - you made the right choice going on the ferry! I've never had the crutch of my nicks full of water before .....

I was thinking about the option of doing Bundeena as a variation, as well as an option for those who want to ride some of the park, and then catch the ferry to Cronulla.

What about doing the Bundeena Ride in the first month of each Season? So, consider this month to be the June run, and then do it each year in

March
June
September
December

That way it is happening regularly.

Just a thought.

Here's the photos I took for the Bundenna trip. Excuse the phone camera quality.

Did you change your phone/camera? The quality is much better than before. Nice photos.

Same phone/camera, I changed some of settings to deal with lower light. Assume that movement won't capture as good as it use to.

Just a reminder that our next Slowies RNP is this Sun. Usual time.

What do people think of another attempt at Bundeena return given our rain disrupted ride last time?

thanks Weiyun for leading the ride. It was pretty tough but I enjoyed it -sorry that I couldn't join you and the others for a well earned coffee. Mark (although I might adopt the francophile Pierre, could help me climb better!)

Sorry Mark. I didn't know you were there. As a matter of fact, we waited an extra 5mins for you at Marrickville and no one there could picture who you were. And all along the ride I didn't know you were the one. Someone called you Pierre and I thought that was your name. :oops:

Glad you enjoyed it though.
