Can dogs and partners come along as well ?

Actually I forgot to ask...does your dog smoke? If so he/she will have to make his/her own arrangements. :shock:

I don't think I'll be able to go :( Dog-sitting duties. :(

I'm pretty sure I can smell the wedges. :)

If anyone needs to phone me about this pm me and I'll get you the number. Can't wait to meet you all. :)

I've been telling workmates that I'm meeting a group of people off the internets that I've never met. Luckily it's a public place :mrgreen:

Good to meet you Zynster, and everyone else (Elantra, RosscoG, marinmomma, et al). I might see you at the swap meet.

Cheers,

That was awesome following you Paul. The acceleration on that thing is wild. Once we hit the gardens you pulled away like I was standing still.

Sounds good.

Some where for all abilities (flattish), safe enough for 2 a breast riding at times & maybe a couple of distances or bail out points.

Could meet centrally (Goodwill bridge) & do the bike ways to Boondall wet lands & return. About 50km with the more keen continuing on to Redcliffe --100km.

Or an equivalent southern destination.

I'd be keen....a few more ladies would be nice!

Well my Wife (Squirrel) would come along, but she's not much of a "lady".

OK, then, females!

You haven't seen me ride in the early morning with snot going in every direction...over my face and down my arms when the 'bushman's hanky' has failed :roll:
Still perfecting the 'art' of cycling and clearing the snot at the same time!

It was totally lovely to meet you all. Here's to many more. :)

That sounds pretty cool. People could do the 50 then decide how they feel to go on. Ive never ridden out to Boondall or Redcliff (im a southside boy and i heard theres dragons across the other side of the river :mrgreen: )



So.....married a squirrel huh? Does PETA know about this? :P

Hey guys and gals,
Great to meet everyone there and a big thank you to comedian for organising.

I'm definitely up for a group ride once I get the bent finished (no long rides on the road bike for me). In fact, I'm up for any ride if there is someone wanting company for a regular arrangement or not.

I'm looking forward to getting some Mt Coot-tha punishment in too. Would be good to get a hill climb division going.
You guys have any set time/days?

Hi All,

A ride sounds good. I've missed everything during the last couple of weeks because I had the virus that has been going around.

Cheers,

Unfortunately this weekend looks a bit rainy.

I know it's a bit dull but what about a riverloop? It's central and not too taxing.

How will we handle the different speeds? Just work it out on the day?
