I'll try and join you if I can. This Saturday is also the Big Garage Sale day, so if anyone's interested I could set up a stall of all the retro bits I have for sale. The route goes within 100m of my place. Anyone need anything in particular?

Hi Claire, my wife want to tell you that it is good to meet you too. We ended up riding about 80 km on the day. My daughter is exhausted but she recovered well next day! :D

I would, but I have to go to the markets on Saturday. Quite miffed, actually, because they cancelled the racing on Saturday, which means I won't get a proper ride at all.

Good luck, though, and happy birthday.

Well it's looking like the ride is tomorrow unless there are any other participants. What time does everyone want to meet at Parramatta Park?

+1 for tomorrow

I will be joining you all for only about half of the ride, as I am in crunch time regarding uni assessments. That said, whereabouts at the park are we meeting? I say we start at either 6:30 or 7am

Count me in for meeting at Parra Park. Hoping I don't get lost on the way there! Cycling in from Strathfield through SOP if anyone else is going by there.

Lovely day for a ride. Did a quick trip round the block just to make sure I got over 100km. After our conversation re strava I had a laugh when I uploaded it - apparently I managed to pick up 90 "trophies" that's almost 1 per km :lol:

Weekend Retro rides_Sydney(updates)

Postby QuangVuong » Sat Oct 26, 2013 4:35 pm

Nice day for a good ride today. I did about 77km today, but only picked up about 30 trophies with one KOM. If Claire used Strava, she'd prob have 50 QOMs. :) I reckon I would've tied with Geoff Stocker on one segment as I was holding about 42-47km/h, but my GPS loses connection(must've been going too fast :mrgreen: ), and says I was resting for 18s. One day I'll beat him.

Went to Josh's garage sale afterwards to pick up some bits. If everything goes well, I'll have a Gios next ride. And hopefully the Bundy the one after.

Thanks for organizing the ride today Claire! Great weather and lots of places I've never been before. Also thanks again to Rheicel for the tyre change :)
Notched up my first 100k ride today, despite being temporarily halted by my spasming legs! Raised my seatpost a centimetre on the way home which seemed to help. The winds on the way back didn't :(

If you actually look at your KOM from today, you'll notice that you already have ;)
