I hope you're not nominating GJ or McD for coffee. We could go to the marshes around SOP and get better than that swill.

I'm happy with 7am.

I am going to be in town this weekend, so I will do my best to be there (7am - SOP)

Depends on how I pull up after Soccer tonight (been away for the last 5 games - this is going to hurt). I have to be mindful that I am heading back up to Qld on Sunday morning (Driving), and my work Xmas party is Sat night. Yeah.....got a bit on :shock:

I've got a party on tonight, so I might wait and see what time I get to bed.... Don't wait for me if I'm not there at 7am, I'll most likely still be asleep!

Doesn't look too bad according to the BOM.

Saturday 30 November
Summary
Min 16
Max 21
Possible shower.
Sydney area
Partly cloudy. The chance of showers, contracting to the coastal fringe and clearing in the afternoon. Winds south to southwesterly 15 to 25 km/h tending south to southeasterly in the morning then becoming light in the late evening.

I've got some stuff on tomoz so I won't ride with ya's but I'll be in the area so I'll look out for ya's. I'll try to meet up with ya's (AT) the start :)

Thanks to all that participated today and to Rheicel for setting the route. Nice to see familiar faces and some new ones. Note to self: always use foot retention unless commuting

Work experience for a council job. Claire might need it soon.

Great ride guys. Thanks for organising it Rheicel. Apart from the flat (which shouldn't happen with a Vittoria Randonneur) it was a good morning out. The coffee was significantly better than the crap at Gloria Jeans. I managed to keep up with Claire half way up a long, but not steep climb, which I was proud of. On the flats I easily managed to hold Rheicel's wheel, even when we were going at 45+. It was a great cruising speed and one that we could have kept up for ages if we were swapping turns, though I was happy not to be in the wind. Probably the only good part of the M2.
I wouldn't be able to hold Marc's wheel on any sort of downhill slope. The green rocket sucks going up (you need lower gearing), but downhill it's a wonder to behold.

I reckon we should get Marc into training by loading him up with some supplies, sending him on ahead, then pace-lining it to our destination for lunch. Maybe we could find somewhere about 40-50km away that's relatively flat- maybe Cronulla or Botany Bay, and head down for December brunch.

It was also great to ride without Bruce.

Lovely weather for a great ride. Thanks for leading the way Rheicel. It was the first time for me on a motorway's breakdown lane with very random things that we went by. However, it was good to ride a decent stretch at high speed. Managed to hit 58km/h near Baulkham Hills when I was trying to chase down BFV and Rheicel. Ended up doing 105km all up with the last 20km on the verge of cramping. Need to do some bike fit adjustments to the Gios.

And Rheicel, your chain is a bit too short!

Anyone interested in backing up for a ride on Saturday ? The GLW & spawn are still in Melbourne so I have a free day to enjoy a nice ride.

I see Grant is organising a nice 100 km ride from Tallong down Macquarie Pass to Dapto - just a shame he expects you to do the hard 100 km from Dapto to Tallong first :D

RD does not have enough spring to slack the chain so I cut it just enough to allow big-big.

That would have been nice if not for my son' b-day.

Feel free to come along for any part - The last 35 kms is arguably the best bit :)

Thanks for the encouragement Grant, but as my longest ride to date is only 120 km, I think I might get an imperial century or 2 before I even think about 200 km.
