I can't tell you if it's worth it for the coffee (as I don't drink it), but Robertson is definitely worth if for the Big Potato (Turd)...

ride looks good. 5h is a conservative estimate, it took me 1.5 h to get from robertson to dapto at lazy touring pace. add extra time to get up the hill and coffee. 4-4.5 5 if you wanna take lots of pictures and relax it the big poo

oh ya, just in-case you didn't realize, you've added in a river crossing ( type -34.576815,150.726153 into google maps)

Going to scrub myself from this early, sorry mate. Rode 15km today and it nearly killed me, now I am sick. Would be terrible company on a ride like this.

I'm going to shuffle the date again due to Greek Easter commitments. Looks like the family have planned a get together for the 5th.

How does the 12th sound people?

I'm glad Andrew spotted that it was Mother's Day. That could have got ugly.
I can't do the 12th but I can do the 11th.

Ok, I've updated the ride to be Saturday 11th May. I personally will need to reapply for a leave pass to cover but the day appears to be free. I still have Saturday 18th up my sleeve (so I think anyway).

Should this now suit anyone new please join the list...

Cheers,
Noel
