Thanks Wazza I will try and make it to one even if on my modern bike, if that's allowable, until I get my Rappallo going properly. :)

Ride as you like, as I said we vary the trips these days so I have ridden mid 80s Gefsco(retired), late 80s/early 90s(?) Shogun Celeste Beau, 2000 Master X lite and 2012 Spec Roubaix. We ride what we ride :wink:

Well to put it in club race lingo, yes one of our clan could ride C-grade, but there would be 4 of us in D-grade and one riding E-grade (E for electric assist).

Let's revise that.
Our "C-grade" rider just blasted up the back of Mt. Coot-tha (his first time at it) in about ten and a half minutes total, passing more than 20 other cyclists in the process..

And that was on a steel frame bike more than 20 years old :shock: So i suspect that he might be a bit strong for "C-grade"

Are you still doing O'Reilly's (spelling) this weekend? We just did a 76k ride down to Redland bay via Avalon rd. Lumpy but fortunately cool. Fantastic ride.

O'Reillys. Now that's quite a climb. It would have been beautiful for sure. Terrible road surface.

I hope to be there at around 6am, depending on the weather.
forecast for brisbane area appears favorable, http://www.bom.gov.au/qld/forecasts/brisbane.shtml
This is a bit of a surprise considering that a cyclone has crossed the coast up north.

i see that an ex-bna member is trying to drum up support for the raturday riverloop on his Facebook page.
i'm in two minds about starting a new thread, and suggesting a new meeting point for any further retro riverloop raturdays.
also, there's a Facebook page (which i co-host) called https://www.facebook.com/groups/retroclassiccycling/ where I post upcoming local events/rides that I hear about.
if you would like to contribute (or lurk/sledge), please feel free to join.
