Hi Tony, I was sounding out last night if anyone was interested, I'm thinking of something shorter, perhaps the "" ride, if there's enough interest. Add your name to the following list


Earlie Eastie - 6am 8th Jan

Hi Mike,

I'd like to come along tomorrow if you're ok with waiting for me at the top of the climbs.

I'm out. Back too late from the Sydney Festival opening night. Have a good one!

and it's 1:20 am, not 12:20 am. The timestamp is wrong, Stuart?.

Thanks for an excellent ride today Mike. Very scenic, and good varied terrain to expose the deficiencies in my current training regime (climbing, descending, and flat course).

As Andrew said, thanks for a great ride to day Mike. Nothing like a good flogging every now and again to let you know you're alive :D

See you all in a few weeks - I promise I will ride the spin bike when I am in Bali.

Cheers

This weekends adventure ride is the Johnny Warren Jamberoo Classic. You need to enter using a form that is available on-line although it may already be too late. I'd ring / email the contact shown on the form >> http://www.jamberoopub.com/news.php Cost is $60 - money raised goes to cancer research. You need a bib number to ride ...

here's the link to the forum topic on this ride >> viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2839

I'll be there .... on my motorbike as a ride Marshall. Look for the large red Ducati ST3.

Due to my injuries, we had to reschedule the non fixie century to April. In March Eleri will post an RNP ride - Waterfall in, Bundenna Ferry out.

The second post in the thread is out of date and can't be updated due to a technical glitch [Stuart is looking into it] so view the first post for the correct dates and events

I'm a newbie to peloton riding but I'm learning fast. I have only done one waterfall ride with DHBC, loved it, but will have a few more under my belt by the 11th. 28+ is not a problem. If that sounds ok I'd love to come along. I am now a member also.

Weather is looking good for tomorrow. We'll leave Marrickville Road Cafe at 6am sharp.

We'll have to deal with ferry capacity with a group this big. I'll split the group at Waterfall and send off the faster riders first to catch the 9am ferry which you should do pretty easily as it's only about 24kms. You can have coffee in Cronulla. I'll stay with a second bunch who will coffee up in Bundeena and catch the 10am ferry and pick up the earlier bunch at Cronulla and we can all ride back together.
