Unofficial Trek Store ride this morning. Only 4 in the group. I think next week is the first official ride for 2011.

This morning;

The one I went on late last year was split with same starting times into two groups. I am sure they would be doing this again but not sure if the start times will vary.

Dropped into the Trek store today, and the first official store ride according to Charles is this Saturday.It is my understanding that there are still 2 groups, official ride time is 0630.
Isaac No longer works at the store,He has had a career change, Charles is now in charge of the shop.Tim

edit, Have not seen you for a while Sli(Stu), see you have been up north, be good to catch you for a chat:)

I rode this arvo as well, at 3pm. Down to the M7 cycleway at Old Windsor Rd then through to the closed section at the Great Western Highway. Such a PITA that it's been closed in so many places the last 6 months :cry:

Great ride this morning. I loved the pace, (32.7kph moving av), great in a bunch as it's mostly flat, and made me work those last few hills on Annagrove Rd. I a would like another 10-15kms on the ride. Too hard to get started again once we stop for coffee at 43km :wink:

On hols for a few weeks so will feel it's much harder when I get back :D

that makes sense Tim. I guess I should just continue and do another 20km before I stop. Or pull my finger out and get up early enough to ride to the ride - that would add another 25km each way for me.... Will see how I go when I get back.

I'm doing the M7 cycleway tomorrow, hope it's a lot cooler than today :D

Quite a good ride this morning even though the return to RHTC was a bit sooner than normal. Some good speed at times but also good opportunities for catching a breath. Probably a good mix for the different level of riders in one group, and the quick guys still got to do the usual bolt over the last 3-4km.

Sorry I didn't get a chance for a chat this morning Tim. I missed out before and during the ride and then wanted to add a few more k's (just like you and Russ) before stopping (and coffee). Ended up adding an extra 15km with Aaron just riding easy up to the Norwest Private Hospital and back home.

Can anyone join you tomorrow Russ?

Cheers,

Stuart.

Yes no probs Stuart, I will be going early as I'm heading south to meet a mate from work.

I aim to be at the Woodstock Road overpass (at RootyHill) about 645am heading south to Eliz Dr to meet Domenic. Ride with him up to Norwest and if I have the stamina, back down to Prestons for a break at the Maccas, before doing the 33km north back home from Prestons. I guess all up about 120-130km if I do the lot (no guarantees I might get lazy LOL).

Anyone's welcome, it will be a casual ride, Domenic is on a flat bar road bike and only done 80km once before.

For a longer ride on the Sat, I was thinking about this: the ever so slightly longer Sat Trek Shop Ride

It comes out about 51km and would only be 15-20min longer than the standard ride. We'd still get back in time to have a coffee and it would be after the rush of orders ;-)

I'll be back in 3 weeks so wouldn't mind giving this a try if anyone's interested. Russ

Thanks Russ,
If I can get my A out of bed (really tired and due for a sleep in - yes, break out the violins :wink: ) I'll try and meet up with you guys.
Regarding the Trek Store ride distance, give it another couple of weeks before making any plans. I think there's some Trek Annual Leave affecting things at the moment. Hopefully it should be sorted by the time you're back.
Don't wait for me tomorrow....and in case I don't make it, have a great holiday.
Cheers.
Stuart.

Good Route Russ, Grant and I did that one on the way home after coffee.The turf farm loop entering behind the windsor church or entering from the Richmond end is good as well, as is the driftway loop turning left at the Hawkesbury Racetrack and going out to castlereigh Road, plenty of great Routes.I will most probably do the driftway early tomorrow morning.Tim

Edit, no worries Stu catch ya soon mate. :D

No probs Stuart. I'll look forward to the rides on my return then - god help my legs... :lol:

Tim the driftway isn't bad (got some relo's out at Yarramundi so do it now and then) but it's rough and you get bogans hooning because its' straight ( we all know they really can't drive :wink:) The turf farm roads are quite good though.

I generally like Castlereagh rd on weekends when there's few trucks. In the week it can be scary as the shoulder isn't always as wide as you'd want.

Have a good ride tomorrow.

Russ

Sunday ride anyone?
I'm thinking of doing two Rouse Hill/Richmond/Rouse Hill loops for 100km. Starting at 0630 at the Trek store. Second loop should start at about 08:15. Easy pace.
Cheers,
Stuart.

Pretty average ride this morning. One group only and hamstrung by 3 flats due to all the debris on the road. It was only about 45-50k total and speed was cruisy for some and quick some others.
Maybe next Saturday we need to pay hommage to the tyre/puncture gods before we set out :?: (and hope for two groups :wink: )

Charles generally asks for volunteers to lead a faster group mate, not sure if he did that this morning, but he did on my last ride with the lads, and no one stood up to lead it.Might be something to think about, as i think Charles generally rides with the slower group,which is fast enough for me :D :D :D :D

Just a quick question guys, what sort of average speeds are we talking for the 'slower' & 'faster' groups.... Still only a newbie and don't want to be jumping in out of my depth......
Went past the group on saturday morning just before annangrove rd all stopped???
