The Orphan School Creek bridge is shut. The debacle of last weekend was clearly just something to tide things over and now there is scaffolding on the underside and signs of major work being done. There's no indication of how long it will take but I'm just glad that the rough ride last week wasn't a completed job.

As regards Brighton Le Sands, I'd be up for that.

I haven't been riding too regularly, but a ride out to Brighton Le Sands should be doable.

Do we have a consensus for Sunday 23rd ? Meet at say 7:30 am Waterview Cafe, Bicentennial park for an easy cruise to Brighton-Le-Sands

And lo... work decided "did we say Sunday? Well actually... Saturday. Like now". When now was 8am.

Good thing I'm an early riser and didn't have anything planned till the afternoon eh?

But I'm back in for Sunday. Which is apparently 40kmh southerlies. How's the rocket in side winds Mark?

depending on the "downhill" speed.....

it wobbles like a Kombi above 55km/h....

but it's ok along the flatter parts, & at lower speeds

That was most enjoyable. Wind on the way down was rarely a pain but really helped for most of the way home.

Over breakfast we were talking about trikes... And I said Greenspeed had a new trike that was a bit of a weapon.

here's one of the best pics I've seen of it

31lb they say, 14kg. Dunno you could get it much lighter so it won't get into QV's stable cos it will never make it to the 10kg level, on the other hand it won't get blown sideways either...

I rode over the Orphan School Creek bridge behind Canley vale this morning. It's finished but it is bloody awful and should be renamed the Paris-Roubaix bridge as it's as rough as guts and will shake your filling loose.

I also went over it today. It's nice that they resurfaced East Parade, but the bridge replaces the bumpyness.

Paul, I think you had a suggestion for a route for November? Want to start a list?

Bugger, I can't remember where I suggested, remind me. Was it the loop around this part of the world? SOP/Parra loop?

Okay, how about for November a nice easy 50 km taking in the loop to Olympic Park and back to Parramatta for some food with a bit of a detour at the start around the Prospect area.

Route here

https://www.strava.com/routes/6919267

Meet at the wooden bridge in Guildford just up from the train station. Trains run from Parramatta at the end for anyone wanting to train it in.

I can't do this coming weekend so i won't put it in.

That's the spirit Zebee :D

Regarding the wooden bridge at Guildford. I rode over it half an hour ago and one end has a new surface. It was dark so I couldn't see exactly but it appears to be some plastic material placed over the timber. It was nice and smooth so I'm wondering if the intention is to do the whole bridge so there will be no issues with nails sticking up anymore. It is certainly a better job than Fairfield council's bodged up Orphan School Creek bridge.
