....a short one
The first Bakery to Bakery ride was held today Dodges Ferry Bakery to Richmond Bakery.
Obviously yesterday's effort was not enough to satisfy the appetites of the DFBTR bunch so another ride took place today. Unfortunately, Master 6 was otherwise disposed attending to secret shed business but his place was filled by Andrew T. So an 8.30 start saw Paul B, Redheeler and Andrew T depart Dodges Ferry, through Lewisham to Sorell, Shark Point Rd,Brinktop Rd, Fingerpost Rd (Anita headed home due to work at this point), to the Richmond Bakery. A break for coffee and then over Brinktop, through Sorell, Lewisham and onto the finish line at the Dodges Ferry Bakery.
71ks in total and overall a great ride.
Looking forward to the ride on Thursday next week
After completing the Dome ride to Collinsvale, Paul. The Primrose circuit may become a little boring. It sounds like your appetite has been whet for rides that are more challenging.
Variety is the spice of life as they say... Anyhow, I still have lots of miles to do yet if I want to match it with the boys at Dome or the RBWR. Got to keep on pushing the limits
Another DFBTR and the usual suspects being Paul B and Master 6 were joined by Redheeler who is becoming part of the regular crew. So after a number of harder rides in the days leading up to today, it was a nice change to have a ride at a relaxed pace. So nothing of any great significance to report. Although once again, we got wet. Started out in fine conditions, though the dark clouds looked threatening and did not disappoint.
Despite all indications that the weather was going to turn nasty, I made my way to the bakery only to find that I was the sole rider who had turned up However, Master 6 and Redheeler appeared (2 minutes late) and we set off for the run to Primrose. Good ride and good coffee at the end ... and, we didn't get wet

Those wise souls who seek second opinions will be comforted by my confirmation of the above report from our fearless leader Paul B.
Did you know that some of the delicious product on sale at Richmond Bakery is actually made at Dodges Ferry Bakery.?
Sunny Dodges Ferry turned on a magnificent morning which saw Andrew, Scott, and yours truly tackle Primrose Sands, Sugarloaf, Lewisham, and the delights of Dodges Ferry Bakery, the home of good coffee and huge chocolate wagon wheels. Leadership quality was B gradish due to the absence of the appointed ride dictator, PaulB, who has absolutely confirmed his theory that traction is reduced on wet roads. Hopefully his bike, and widespread soft tissue trauma, will be in better condition next Thursday.
To date DFBTR has had seven riders, and all have gone away to spread the good word.
It just keeps getting better
Nice to see the Dictator PaulB back on the bike. He has chosen a warm sunny dry day to get back into action.
Sorry I wont be joining DFBTR this week, due to the Mens Shed christmas function.
36C is forecast for Thursday
And there I was... a lone figure at the bakery waiting for the bunch to gather. Alas, there would be no such gathering today, so, just a quick 43 random ks. Got the legs moving, second ride back since the stack and still a bit sore. Hopefully, I will have some company again next Thursday.
Master 6, Andrew T and myself arrived at DFB eagerly anticipating the day's ride... a favourite route was chosen... the Dodges Ferry Bakery to Richmond Bakery. It was a fairly easy pace from Dodges, through Lewisham and down to Sorell. Paul B and Master 6 were intent on a committee meeting as we rode down Sharkpoint and Penna Rd... Andrew T decided he was there to ride, not talk and duly hit the front and set the pace which saw us to the junction of Fingerpost Rd. At this juncture, Paul B bolted and left the crew behind, but not for too long, Andrew T caught up and we cruised into Richmond. Master 6, ambled in a few minutes later looking forward to the usual coffee. To the horror and shock of Master 6 and Andrew T... Paul B announced that there would be no coffee until we arrive back at Dodges Ferry. So a water bottle refill and back on the road. Over Brinktop, through Sorell, Lewsiham and back for coffee at the DFB. 74 Ks done
Hoping to see some of the RBWR bunch next week who will be surely in need of a ride after being off the bike on Christmas day. Dodges Ferry Bakery at 9.00. Look forward to seeing you there.
Well we enjoyed that course so much yesterday that Master 6 and I did it again today !!! Unfortunately it rained most of the way so the fun factor registered rather low on the scale. The Ks are done nonetheless
