It's a beauty.

And there's no way it could rain like last year.

I'm in again this year, and I plan not to injure myself this Christmas so I can ride

OK I'm in - how to get from the pub to the train people - I thought I read they were organising a bus this year?

I'm going to do it too. Will register now.

Best way to get to the train is to ride back to Kiama - not up the "hill that will not be mentioned" to Albion Park.

OK - I'm in this too. I thought we needed to practice riding up hills before the Alpine Classic (or is the hill that cannot be mentioned too vicious?)

'That hill' isn't actually part of the ride... unless you want to take a shortcut back to the train station

It's about 28kms from MM to Loftus and therefore takes 1 hour to get there according to the last trip I did anyway. Presumably we want to get there a bit before the start?

Forecast is 90% chance for rain on Sun - if it's raining Jo & I won't be there. I'm also still seriously thinking of the train because this group of riders are all a bit fast for me. I'll make the train decision on Sat.

As last years ride was ordinary for weather conditions to say the least, an early train ride home along the way is always an option. I'm hoping the forecast is wrong!

I'm still thinking it's a 6am start and that, as no-one is actually organising it, that people will turn up, or they won't. Unless it's actually raining in the morning, I'm planning to go.

The weather report seems to be slightly better than it looked a couple of days ago or even this morning. Annoyingly, the wind prediction has moved from "northeast" which was good to "southeast" which is less good.

Barring thunder and lightening I'll be at MM at 6. Gale force winds might put me off too. Maybe flooding. But on the whole I'm choosing to take a positive outlook on a little foul weather and consider it a good bonding exercise. Some of my most memorable rides have been in the rain.

Well this was an epic ride and one I would like to do next year. Congrats to thr organizers who did a great job with minimal fuss. Signage along the way was superb.

We started out in the pooring rain which was unpleasant when the rain and wheel flick sprayed heavily into our faces. At Loftus we met the ride start. All up we had a few riders. Ron, Hung Andre and Michelle, Camilla and Colin. We didn't know about Ron until we passed him south of Wollongong.

The rain stopped and stayed that way for the rest of the day but remained overcast which was good.

Going thru RNP is just magical. And I loved the escarpement. So pretty. We stopped for coffee at a high school friends cafe in Austinmer which was great then headed into Wollongong. I went into central wollongong for the first time in my life. Then we headed out past port kembla again for my fiirst time. We were powering down at this stage at about 38 kms per hour with Camilla , me,Colin and andre in a peleton. It was fast.

Nearer to kiama we headed across a small rural road into Jamberoo.

Nice work team dulwich hill.

Some great shots by ActionSnaps (who gave Camilla lots of encouragement - not that she needed it - she was powering away)


It started off quite wet.

Team DHBC riding over SeaCliff Bridge

Hung braving the elements solo (nice shot dude)

Thank bloody goodness ...... 10 kms to go. And what a beautiful meandering country road it was.

Michelle road with Team Ashbury. More suckers from over that area getting into cycling.
