There is one along the beach line but I think they are a bit expensive.

My coffee taste bud is at the same time a bit overloaded, so anything better than GJ is awesome :D

Does that mean you are joining us Rheicel ?

After the coffee I had on Sunday, anything that doesn't taste like the cooks river smells will be fine.

Roca Cafe on Bestic St is a suggestion, I've never been there but have seen riders there on our return rides. The beach side (above) is very busy, cafes along Bay st are not really big enough to accom' a group plus bikes.
I'm not sure of my work atm so I'll be in as tenative.

I'd love to come along on this if i can. I'm not sure what the criteria is for Retro Rides but was going to come on my 2001 Lemond which although not really retro in age does have a retro geometry and the bit of carbon that makes up the front forks is at least the same colour as the bike so it could be steel like the bike :D

You are welcome Paul. Just be aware that we will try and persuade you of the merits of downtube shifters & high spoke counts :D

Hey Paul! My 'retro ride' is a 2011 carbon fibre trek Madone..... Yep much as the guys have tried to convince me, I've still got it. So a 2001 model is fine :-)

I'm a total imposter I know, but if anyone has a 48cm tt decent retro bike I'll consider it. Got a new job, so I'm allowed n+1 now :-D

I like the LeMonds from that era. And you don't have to feel embarrassed as you might riding a TREK red white n blue US Postal. :P We have rubbery retro rules, anyway. :D
... looks like a hot ride for you guys.
And job congrats in order too, by the sounds, isabella24. 8)
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Yeah, I was redundant for one day.... Sigh. And I thought I was going to get a holiday! Thanks Paul (Frailer, not Hergest, two Pauls = confusion!)

Nice cooler weather today for the ride. My bro and I did alright despite not really riding for the past month. Maybe we had even got faster ;)

Bruce's rear wheel took a battering, but it's still holding up. I came out fine, as did the Cadex thankfully.

good to be back and to meet a new face

really slowed down at the end and was close to a complete physical breakdown as I didn't have any food in me, but I made it

I'm getting a collection of these pics.. :shock: .... We're gonna have to check the tide charts next time we ride through there.... :mrgreen:

OR get the council, RMS or whomever....to maintain the canal wall to a decent level so the pathway doesn't flood at every high tide!! :(

Looks like i've been missing out :(

My poor old Paino is getting cobwebs all over it, but unfortunately I have been travelling all over the Country, installing Printing presses. I am driving to Melbourne to install another one on Monday (down there 6 weeks) then I'll polish up the Paino again and come out for a ride :)

Ever considered a ride down South??
