How about a Uriarra loop then? Only about 3 hours and 75 k's, and there's the option of stromlo a couple times if you can squeeze it in

Probably sounds soft to you guys, but plan on doing an early AM run from Ngunnawal around Lake Gin-n-tonic, stopping 1/2 way, sparking up the home made Danman brand metho powered bush kettle for a nice cup of tea to enjoy the sunrise and then continuing on my way home.

Average speed ~ 20kmh - 30km loop

Agreed then. What time do you want to meet? Same place? If you want to go monday morning instead of arvo feel free. Not fair for me to hold you up cause I've got something else on

We usually meet up at the traffic light of Cotter Road and Streeton Drive.
Time will need to be decided, but my suggestion is 8:30.

I'll keep an eye on this page - I think I should be able to make it.

Assuming I don't have any bad effects from the flu shot I just had. :roll:

I was hoping to get out, but I ripped a hole in my side wall this afternoon and had a catastrophic rear (fortunately) blowout. So gotta source a new tyre for any riding over the weekend. Likely to hit out a nice 50-60km ride around the middle of the day.

I'll have to check tomorrow morning, but I should have some not-so-good Krylion's in the shed. And a couple of new ones. And two new Hutchison Fusion Tubeless. And a spare Pro 3 Race.

Cheers. My LBS opens at 10 today, so I will go and grab a tyre, I think. Then I will order a pair off Wiggle once I am better educated in what to get next. I like the Gators, but will try a couple to compare... prolly GP4000's

Thanks for the ride guys. Nice to do that extra 20km of hill. 95km all up for me!

Don't think will hit Uriarra tomorrow again as planned though.
