I've suggested doing this loop on Saturday. The response has been deafening so that's where I'm going anyway.

*sniffle**sniffle*, possible case of "man-flu" coming on :x ....
but I'm still keen to ride, I'm going to start on East Pde at Fairfield around 8.00ish, follow your route to Prestons, M7, then I'll detour onto Cowpasture Rd, to Abbotsbury,

I'll probably do a stop at Maccas .....

I'll hold a table at Abbotsbury :mrgreen:

I believe the roll call for next Saturday's ride to Windsor is currently:

Sat 25th - minhyy, Hergest, isabella24, QV, find_bruce, Stevethetiger (maybe)

I'm assuming we are meeting at the Bollards at the end of the M7? What time?

You are correct isabella24 , the bollards at the Bella Vista end of the M7 is the meeting point. 8 a.m seems a civilised time.

I'll probably aim to head you off at the pass, at Sunnyholt Rd.,

Most of my kids are old enough that they can find their own way back home if I "accidentally" left them somewhere. I'm deliberately not teaching the youngest to read and we never mention our home address around him in the hopes of one day reducing the herd by one, thus increasing my chances of riding on Saturdays.

Wrap up warm tomorrow, it's going to be a cold one. Perhaps curry pies will be best :D

Today despite the early chill was really enjoyable and nice and cruisy. I think we all could have stayed sitting in the sun at Windsor.

Agreed, a nice day out,


despite the Rocket only running on 80% power :(
....& plenty of cramping in the legs for the return kms :|



I must be getting old, lol, but I blame the 'man-flu' hanging on

So guys.... Retro ride. When and where??
Been doing a good loop with Hergest lately which goes down the Fairfield rail trail then cuts across to the M7 and back to the dam? Or do it in reverse and get pork rolls on the way back :-)

Pork rolls sound like a plan...

Good thinking Claire. The M7/Railtrail loop with pork crackling rolls at Canley Vale has become one of my favourite rides. Just need to find a decent cuppa.

Haven't been on a bike in ages, been mostly in WA doing family things. Can't do a long transport section so as long as I can get the train to the start should be good.

The 27th looks the go. I've got a horrible feeling though that that is the day of Claire's exam. If so I'm happy to ride both days as I will be anyway. I'll find out this weekend.

If we say the 27th how about meeting at the wooden bridge just up from Guildford Station so Zebee can train it in? Also rather than doing the full M7 which isn't really retro casual riding we go along the canal cycleway, through the dam and out to the Horsley Drive and cut down to the M7 that way, then the shortish ride to the end and back up on the railtrail via Leacock's Lane? Rolls at Canley Vale and a handy train station for those wishing to return that way.

8 a.m at Guildford not too early?
