Bit of a late response :)
The Railway trail was beautiful on my loaded touring bike. Did the kep track as well. Anyone want to do it before summer kicks in?

I rode this for the first time on sunday, well, a 15km loop from Midland maccas to the tunnel and back. Really keen to get out on it a bit more, such a cool trail.

Baalzamon with a bit more warning (ie not the night before) would be interested subject to home and work time tables.

Thinking a few weeks away at this stage, I've got to get over the hurdle of a lower back issue and my left shoulder starting to freeze up again from my crash a few months ago. Cortisone is wearing off :(

Depending on the time would be keen. Earlier in the day the better with the warmish weather coming on.

Kep is 70kms each way?

Was thinking to Bakers hill. Towards Northam when I was on it, the track was heavily eroded and in bad need of repairs.

Hmm a chance to try out the pie shop.

My max ride has been 75kms. so probably Bakers Hill is a good effort. Got the Railway Reserve ride down to 2hours, so hopefully won't slow you down too much. I am easy as to Saturdays or Sundays.

Hey Guys and Girls,
How about a change of venue?
Day, Any Given Sunday or second mondays when i'm free
Do the kalamunda loop?
the new alignment of it
Start at the Calamunda camel farm
Must Haves are
1, Mtb hardtail or Dually, with offroad tyres and spares, ie not semi slicks
2, Camelbak or 3 litres of water
3, a little singletrack experience, but not necessary
4, Gloves and helmet etc
Any questions call or pm me
John

P.S , this ride would not be a timed ride,
we go as slow as slowest rider, posssibly me
No Group splitting fast/slow
And we pay the rent for parking at the farm,
with a coffee/ lunch break after, as respect and a thankyou

FYI - doing the full loop (heading east from the camelfarm), including climbing rocky balboa twice (to do mercury street and then back up) is 26kms - just so people have an idea of distances :)

3rd or 4th, or 10/11th of December works for me (in fact any weekend morning with notice). Parkingwise not at any of the known horror spots, like the carpark at the end of Morrison Road, as it is usually full of broken glass.

I've merged two nearly identical threads as they were close enough to the same as to make no difference.

I did the Railway Reserve loop on Sunday. My estimates would have been 100's of fellow cyclists doing the same, based on the number of people I passed doing the reverse direction to the way I was travelling.

Really nice to see some water in the creeks, and fantastic weather.

Let me know if you would like to join in and I will arrange another ride.
