Thank you to the guys who guided the group of us through the RNP - you did a great job keeping the pace inclusive and the ride enjoyable. While I found it quite tough it was very satisfying!

So there was a crash at Waterfall. I was part of it but came off with only bruises, scrapes and sore hands. Need a new helmet. Nick (shoulder or collarbone) and Jason not so lucky as they were carted off in the ambulance. Wishing a speedy recovery to them both.

Stay safe people. Stay vigilant and watch the gap. Crashes happen very fast.

Spot the difference;


Black hole


Bundeena Ferry

That makes 3 attempts to get there.

I'm available Sunday 18th August for another ride. Do we want to make a 4th attempt at Bundeena Ferry or do something different, like 'The Wall', or a suggestion of yours?

For what it's worth .... Adventure rides used to be slow, meandering, inclusive events. They were at a genuine C25+ pace and could take all day (especially if ferries were missed). This ethos seems to have been replaced by a fast, large bunch training ride pace and mind set.

Time to reset? Maybe those wanting training rides could organise as such ....

I think there is a misunderstanding here. The pace is set by the slowest rider, so how fast it is, depends on who is riding. Usually myself or another quick rider will be at the rear and will advise the bunch to slow down if a rider is unable to keep up and/or assist the rider.

Any ride involving a so called 'Wall' does not... in my opinion... sound "good".

I am however feeling adventurous and will also partake 8)

The Wall - 6am Sunday 19th August

Last year was the first time we ventured up this one. Its got some bite in it at 20% but then it levels out to 10%.

The route is Marrickville -> RNP Audley in -> Otford pie shop (probably grab a coffee) -> helensburgh -> Waterfall -> Marrickville

Pace is that of the slowest rider and the quicker riders will challenge themselves on the hills.

I may or may not turn left after the wall, head down to stanwell park then turn around and head back to waterfall through the park. It's only a slight maybe but a maybe none the less.

Hi Mike. I liked your idea of an adventure ride that left early, headed a long way out, then caught a train home. Much safer than coming back into Sydney during mid morning peak hour. In that vein i really like the thought of heading north - via the gorges and then beyond? Is there a route that could make that work? All best. Andrew

Hi Andrew, agree its good to ride out of Sydney early and not so great to ride into Sydney later

I'm thinking of a ride to Wisemans ferry, grab a feed then onto Wyong and train home. Need to investigate the feasibility of it.

Also looking at the feasibility of putting on a ride for the C25ers

Wyong via Wiseman's sounds grand. :) :)

http://app.strava.com/routes/20275 I think Strava's elevation data for some of this is kaput but the rest of it looks good.

Has anyone ridden the Wiseman's Ferry Rd?

Mike has led two adventure rides through wisemans ferry (I've been on both). It's fine. Not awesome riding but good.

I have done all of that except central mangrove to wyong.
http://www.strava.com/activities/67947586

It's fine.

Actually, better than fine. The section from wisemans to mangrove mountain is fantastic!

And I'm sure yarramalong valley would be awesome.

I was tempted to do that rather than ride back to sydney.

Whose up for an Adventure Ride this Spring?

It's been a while. I'd like to revisit Mike's Windsor ride (minus my fixie). But there are lots of other possibilities. Maybe a 3 gorges for those who've not done it before?

In essence, I'd like to see this endeavour re-invigorated. It's lots of fun & a great way to meet people/challenge yourself. I'm proposing November Sunday 23 as a date (because I'm away before that).

Thoughts?

Windsor sounds Fab.
Other places in my mind:
- Macquarie Pass, train home
- Headlands, all of them, Bundeena, ferry, Cronulla, Kurnell, la per, south head, water taxi, north head, Barrenjoey, ferry, Box Head , train home
Might need to do that one in two separate days.

Is that 100k or 160k? IMO 160k is too far for an inclusive Adventure Ride i.e. too far for me 8)

So what's the decision?
1. Blue Mountains 3rd route (100k ???) Which Stu is keen on. Marrickville -> Windsor (coffee at the bakery) -> Springwood (beer) and a train
2. The Century, actually a little more (180k ???) Not Stu's cup of tea. Marrickville -> Wisman's (coffee and brunch) -> Hawkesbury river -> Windsor and a train

Philip, Keith, Nick and I rode back from Springwood.
A hoot getting down to Penrith.
Bloody awful from there back along the M4 and the M5. I won't do that again.

The M5 is still a write off due to road works. Definitely recommend a beer and a train trip for the return run.

The newsletter reminded me that we've got an adventure ride happening on Sunday!

We need to decide which route we're doing. Mike, are you able to be ride leader either way (i.e. be in charge of directions)?

Stuart, did you want to come? In which case we could do the shorter route if you preferred.

Ride leader? does that mean I get to drink the most beer?

Lets put the route to a vote

Marrickville -> Wisemans -> Windsor 180k?
============================

Marrickville -> Windsor -> Springwood 100k?
============================
3. Mike (but OK with either)

Yet to vote

Maybe next time?

Has anyone noticed the weather forecast?

Starting to think RNP might be a good option.

And what is the temperature 6am thru 10am? Same time frame as RNP, will only be slightly different

And... the beer will be the same temperature regardless
