jump on the train @ 9:38 from wolli creek, transfer at campbelltown and head to bowral. arrive @ 11:40, go to the pub for lunch.
then ride out to Bundanoon, via the newly re-surfaced velodrome!

a nice easy 30 or so km.
who else wants in?

I'm keen to do the train to Bowral.

But http://www.131500.com.au is saying that the times are:
Option 1
Dep: 9:08am Wolli Creek Station Platform 2
Arr: 9:55am Campbelltown Station Platform 3
Dep: 10:04am Campbelltown Station Platform 4
Arr: 11:14am Bowral Station Platform 2

Option 2 :
Dep: 11:08am Wolli Creek Station Platform 2
Arr: 11:55am Campbelltown Station Platform 3
Dep: 12:04pm Campbelltown Station Platform 4
Arr: 1:14pm Bowral Station Platform 2

Option 3 :
Dep: 1:08pm Wolli Creek Station Platform 2
Arr: 1:55pm Campbelltown Station Platform 3
Dep: 2:04pm Campbelltown Station Platform 4
Arr: 3:14pm Bowral Station Platform 2

I would lean towards 1108 departure for late lunch at Bowral and pleasant mid-afternoon fixie-style trundle to Bundanoon.

131500.info appear to have rail replacement buses on the Saturday.

I am planning to leave Wolli Creek on the 3:08pm, to arrive Moss Vale at 5:23pm. An easy 18k's and should arrive at 6:10pm or so at the latest. Anyone else interested in the later train?

If anyone's interested in joining me. My current plan seems to be leaving Marrickville at around 9:30 (knowing me, it'll probably end up being closer to 10), and meet everyone in Bowral for lunch.

Just a reminder to all riders, make sure your bike has new a good functioning brakes with good amounts of rubber on the brake pads. Please check chain tensions & if chains need replaced do it before the day.

Safety is paramount, last year we were abit relaxed and had a very serious accident, I don't want to see any crashes due to mechanical incidents which can be prevented,

While I'll still be in Bundanoon it's unlikely I'll be riding on Sunday and if I do, it will probably not be the full distance. I've been attacked by a stomach bug that may or may not be this...

It's still working it's way out of my system but am in a very weakened state as a result.

And I'm so disappointed as was confident of making it this year!

Sorry to hear you are sick Jo. I feel for you. Last year I couldn't hold anything solid in, and missed breakfast before the ride. I still made it to Wollongong, so don't give up hope yet...

I'm going to catch the 11.08 Wolli Creek option too...

See you all tomorrow.

Thanks for that Eleri - your blessing worked fine!

Such a great day out on a single gear. Lots of stories, and terrific company. Sure was good to get to the velodrome though and then onto the German for a sit down on a soft chair.

We were well looked after by Ye Olde Bike Shop in Bundanoon and here is a pic of the early start breakfast.

Thanks to all who made it happen especially Simon and the team car that was everywhere on the route driven by Christian.

The tradition continues.

Well, I had a great time too, though my total was about 145km, not quite a century. However my bike is 60 years old, which combined with my age is a (different kind of) century…

I broke a tooth on Saturday, so eating was a bit of a challenge. My total for the day was two pieces of toast, two apple turnovers, a few of Tim's unwanted wedges and a piece of muesli bar. Spare a thought for AndrewB, who was really sick and survived on an ice-cream and a muesli bar….

As to the ride, beautiful weather, with a tail wind for a lot of the distance. The descent of Macquarie Pass went on and on…. I got to the very last corner and my front tyre went BANG. Managed to stay upright and stopped at the bottom, to discover that the rims had overheated causing the failure. My brake pads were also cooked. While I was changing it one of Adrian's tyres also detonated (same cause I think).

After lunch at Wollongong I survived until the first slight uphill, then dropped out of the pack like a stone. I trundled along until Coledale, where I waited for a train. Pete and Andrew were on the train and we all decided to get off at Waterfall. Over the Captain Cook Bridge and a quick-ish trip to Tempe via the back streets.

Highlights:
Sampling some local wine at Bundanoon, and discovering why the Southern Highlands is not rated one of the world's great wine regions.
Watching Toff nearly (but not quite) succeed in eating a second breakfast immediately after his first. Apparently this is a feat only possible for a hobbit.
Seeing Christian waving the floor pump as I was changing my tyre.
Watching the expressions on people's faces as Toff injected his preferred PEDs.
Barrelling down part of the Ken Dinnerville route, which was nearly rough enough to be pavé.
Seeing the look on Pete and Andrew's faces as I walked my bike through the carriage to where they were sitting.
Getting out at Waterfall and discovering there was a tail wind to blow us home.

What I learned:
That I need to do more training.
That training (i.e. riding in a train) is easy.
That steel rims and lots of braking are a bad combination.

Last lap.

Glad to be finished.

lol at the hobbit comment by John J!!
There were many winners on the day Marc, we had the people who made it up the climb with out stopping, the people who made it up period, the people who road down there first passing 300km for the weekend, the people who saw the whale jumping in and out of the water (that was so cool!!!), cycling (as a sport, as a whole), the people who finished, the people who got to try the got flat tires after finishing the mac pass and not while descending!! the people who had the pleasure of hanging out with Joan's sister and her boy friend (replace names with just about any one who turned up, I seriously only come to this thing to hang out with people!).
