Departing "The Marrick" 5.30am Saturday April 19 a ride of the 6 Gorges.
The route will follow the Pacific Hwy north to Bobbin Head, onwards to Brooklyn and Mt White for average coffee at the Old Road Cafe, returning south via Pie In The Sky :D , Berowra Waters (ferry ride :D ), Galston Gorge, once more through Bobbin Head and back to Marrickville.
It's about 175 km and takes 9.5 hours give or take. Numerous bailout points along the railway north but not when we head through Berowra Waters and Galston.
The pace will be fast 28/middies and you can wait for me at the top of the hills. Bring 2 bidons, 2 tubes, pump and money for pies.

I may be a starter but not a finisher. I need to be in Monavale for Easter lunch. I'll try to figure out the logistics. If it turns out to be tricky I'll opt for Stuarts 3 gorge option.

Hi, as I'm unable to join Friday's ride, am a possible for this one, though looking to shorten by either bailing earlier, or driving to Bobbin. Will let you know Pete.

I'd love to but I'm a no. The shorter Stuart option suits my family plans better, enjoy the pies.

Bring your arm warmers, cold this morning, I expect our first time through Bobbin Head will be chilly.

Thanks for organising Pete, started off a few mishaps but we seemed to get them all out of the way early!

Great ride today. Shame I had to bail early. Absolutely smashed it on the way back only to have my work gig get cancelled. Not happy.
