Fun inaugural ride for this new monthly DHBC ride to the Northern beaches today with a highish starting temp of 24.5 deg C. We started with 7 riders at Marrickville and 1 dropped out due to mechanical while I joined the bunch at Oberservatory Hill, next to the Harbour Br cycleway on-ramp. Our first surprise challenge was Ben Boyd Rd through Neutral Bay that tested everyone's climbing legs. Unfortunately Michelle pulled an injury during the climb and had to turn back at the top of it. The remaining 6 proceeded onto Military Rd and across the Spit Br and connected onto Frenchs Forest Rd and then Wakehurst Pkwy. The repeated rolling hills with subsequent downhill sections that gave 65+km/h speeds without leg work gave some satisfying return to everyone's hard work. The drone of the millions of cicadas along the lake section was deafening and was quite a trance that masked the pains in our spinning legs.

A little detour from Pittwater Rd saw us enjoying a well deserved beach side cafe break on the southern end of Curl Curl Beach. A big thanks to Rodney for his local knowledge in showing us this secret hideout. Maybe we will all take our budgie smuggler next time.


Curl Curl Beach.


Great view with DHBC riders leaning over the barrier.


Geoff. But I was more interested in photographing the northern headland of Curl Curl Beach.

: Mike's commentary was in reference to the bumpy corrugation on south bound Pittwater Rd while Geoff was only interested in his coffee.

We then rode the coastal back roads onto Manly and a spurt of blood to Mike's head had him taking us onto Darley Rd. Yep, the dreaded North Head climb. Surprisingly, the coffee rest earlier refreshed everyone's legs and doped up the rest of the system, and we all made it up with surprising speed. There we saw a big gathering of triathletes with 50-60 TT bikes on the racks and everyone agreed that Gi's absence from such an important event (and this ride) was most unbecoming of a DHBCer. ;)


North Head and its brilliant view across Sydney Harbour.

: Overlooking Sydney Harbour and Geoff took advantage of the situation for his 20s of fame. And was that why he is the club President?

With the highlights done, we returned via the Spit and up Parriwi Rd. Despite the pains of coming up Ben Boyd Rd on the way out, the descent was fun fun fun. Then it was SHB, Darling Harbour, Anzac Br and home.


A little rest after the Parriwi Rd climb to recover from the sharply rising heat.

Well, for me it was 78km all up from Birchgrove, a tad more for those who started from Marrickville Rd. Plenty of climbing and great fun. Till next time...

Thankyou Weiyun and Michael for organising and leading this ride

This ride was fantastic. One of the best I've done with the club in 5 years. It was fun, plently of challenging hills, 7 kms of bushland (Otford), great coffee on at Curl Curl Beach, through Manly Corso and up to North Head, more hills, The Spit, more hills, and nice houses to window shop as one was sucking in air.

I look forward to the next adventure next month. Hopefully we can get this one on the calendar soon again.

Thanks Weiyun for posting the photos and video. (I'm the odd one out in the blue jersey).

It was one of the best rides I've done. The hard work was definitely worth it!

Unfortunately I can't do the next one in Feb, I've got a gig in Tassie that weekend.

It was a great ride today, well worthy of been put on next years Adventure calendar. I was particularly impressed by the performance of the cruizer riders who joined the group, they were given a real challenge and stepped up to the mark.

Hope all can make it for next months ride "Tour de Highlands"

OK its on !!!!!, but we had to move the date, sorry. Sun Mar 28 - Southern Highlands Non Fixie Imperial Century day trip - Fixies/SS banned

Bike equipment. Its mandatory that your bike have gears, fixies and single speeds are banned :)

Route - in a nutshell, we will catch a train to Campbelltown, ride west to Nattai, then south east to just before Mittagong and then North back to Campbelltown. Distance will be around 160k and I'm estimating it will take 11hours including stops.

Ride Start Options;
1. 5.45 Mick Mazza's
2. 6.00 for 6.07 train Wolli Creek Train Station
3. 7.00 Campbelltown

Ride timing Example;


Notes: Times are examples only and there is a train every half hour, so it doesn't matter if we go over. No need to avoid a photo opportunity or not stop for that extra icecream :)

Lunch at Colo Vale. I'm not sure that its a good spot to stop. Open to suggestions on Lunch

Trains;
Depart: 6.07 at Wolli Creek train station
Return: 4.25pm at Campbelltown. There is a train every 30 minutes
There is no scheduled
: Adult $8.20

>>> <<<

Pace: Slow

Dodgy weather
In case of bad weather, I'll post a cancellation on this thread at 5am on the day

Awards
Brightest Clothing. Good idea to be seen, it works for movie stars
I'm late. Lets see who makes the train by the skin of their teeth
Are you really going to eat that. Most disgusting lunch - calories are a cyclists friend
I've got a camera stuck to my face. Can anyone take more photos tha Huw? I doubt it

Usually I blame Bill Gates, but not this time. Perhaps google maps is a little flakey.

So who's in?

Sorry with the delay but here are the photos from our Bundeena ride.











And while we enjoyed the ferry ride across to Cronulla, the guy outside the ferry trained hard on his high performance canoe.

Me being in for this ride depends on how slow it's going to be. I need some long slow km's, like touring pace. So I suppose the speed depends on who else is going...

It'll be a more relaxed no-drop ride. For safety reasons, visual contact will be a must along with regular regroup points. Further, the last rider will always be accompanied by another.

Of course, those "bail points" are there to allow 5km/h paced riders to eject themselves. ;)

Only 7 more sleeps till the Southern Highlands 160 aka the non-fixie imperial century.

I've checked for and there isn't any, so we can expect a big empty train to get us there=

The possibility of significant rain on our planned ride route is still there. Whilst wishing for a lucky change in the forecast, anyone who is planning to start the ride at any location other than Mick Mazza and Wollie Creek station is advised to PM either Mike or myself with your mobile number so that we can advise you of any last minute plan change. We'll be checking the weather forecast and radar till the last minute.

There are separate forecasts for Bowral and Camden on the net. Rain at present for Sun. But yes, it'll be warmish if we stay within the Sydney basin.

Thanks Weiyun.

BTW Daylight Savings is not on this week. The forum time is incorrect and shows 1 hour earlier.

Great photos Karzie!

All I can say is that it was a long long day and so glad that the weather turned out to be perfect. Loved the view at Nattai and the company. And for future reference, Colo Vale was a one service station town, don't expect to find a meal there. In terms of mechanicals, apart from a few flats, Mikesbytes managed to complete 3/4 of the ride with a loose cassette locking ring, Karzie took a side wall cut but managed with $10 note, and an external rider bailed at Picton with a snapped RD adjuster screw.

And Rick.Polito won the Most Combative Rider award for the day!

Nice start to the ride in Camden


Finally worked out how these signs can be useful in cycling
