im keen for this. will be the longest ride ive ever done (just means i got to get my fat ass motorvated). i'll do it but will have to bring the asthma puffer :lol:
if you lot go faster than i can handle i will just go at my own pace, even though the pushing might do me good.

If you are going down Compton Rd, then i can meet you on the corner of Kingston rd and Compton Rd? there is a servo there on the cnr. or the bunnings just before the corner?

So far only me, myself and I departing forest lake then pick up the rest along the way
The cold ain't too bad but most likely we will get some head or cross wind somewhere
Waza, don't worry about the pace we will hold it for everyone to be able to hang on and tag along and if this becomes a regular going it will only help us all having more people in the group and start pulling some longer distances easier

Still don't know what jersey to wear .... Damn it !

See you all Sunday

According to the weather bureau they are predicting a fine day with south westerly wind for the weekend - eg nice headwind coming home :D

Looking forward to the outing.

Hi Guys/Gals
I cant make it tomorrow but would be keen to join in next time. I live off Perse Rd so would probably meet with Waza at the bunnings on Compton Rd. Sounds like a nice group forming. Perhaps start another (easier to find thread) to post weekly updates on rides and routes?

Cheers
Rob

Punk Rob, sorry to hear that you can't make it this week and good idea on starting out the new thread .... feel free to jump ahead and get it going if you want .... (Ie: South Brisbane Riding Group? Or whatever the fancy will be)

I wont nominate myself as I am riding from Brisbane to Sydney in October and will be out of action for 2 weeks and won't be able to commit to anything then and also I am useless with direction and routes rides so better leave it to the locals to nominate and take the lead (Happy to do work on the front in rides no problems as long as someone tells me when to turn :D )

Start at Forest Lake 6am then 1st stop Blunder Road / Inala service station

Nice. Ill jump over to that one when you set it up. Perhaps use a bolded weekly format for ride details to make it easier to see the next ride (saves you going back thru pages of thread comments to figure it out). eg

Day/Date:
Start Time:
Pickup Points:
Destination/Length:
Coffee Shop:
Expected pace:
Weather Outlook:
Map/Profile/Bikely link etc:


Just a suggestion :) Any thoughts?

morning guys. sorry about falling behind this morning. hills are not my strong point.
between my hill fitness not being there and my bike not letting me go onto the small chain ring without throwing off the chain, it was a good ride.
i kept going for a bit but turned around and headed home. i went all the way home instead of getting picked up again, so still did 40k's all up.
cant wait to get my new bike...

Waza - Hi. No probs we waited a bit at the Rochedale Road - Mt Capalaba turn - and guessed you may have turned back.

Well according to my GPS (which fell off) we averaged just over 30kph for the trip (on the road) - excluding the stop for coffee. Faster out than back but only slightly.

If you are not getting into the chainring properly it only sounds like a front Derailleur adjust.

Sean-b that was a massive effort you did, be proud of yourself, you deserved that coffee
Waza, sorry to see that the bike didn't play the game but as schurms said could be the front derailleur
Schurms, impressive effort and good work you did at the front today
I was burning by end end of it, think the new seat needs adjusting a tad but thanks heaps, really enjoyed it and glad I could keep up considering I haven't been out for a couple of weeks.
Keep us-posted on the next upcoming rides and for sure would come along

Happy riding to all .... Now time for a nana nap :D
