Nah, Paul is leaving in 2 weeks, and by the time he's back its end of Oct, or Nov.

What date were you thinking of?

We only have to choose between 4 days now anyway. Put your names on the dates that you are available and we will take it from there.

Guys, shall we lock-in the date now?


It'll be mid November before I show my ugly face again. :lol: But that does look like a good route. 8)
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

I'll put my hand up for 21 September. I don't have any racing, kid's dancing, markets etc. I've been waiting for a day like this. I'll be riding anyway, so why not with you guys?

21st, 28th or 29th look good for me at this stage, if you can put up with one more :)

Another way of looking at it, is that you don't want to ride with Bruce.

It's so bad that I'm looking to pick a fight, but everyone around here is so kindhearted, polite and attractive :roll: that it wouldn't be right to take it out youse, so I take it out my myself.

And if you're familiar with my posts you'll know what an irritating ignoramus I can be.

See!? Who wouldn't want to pick a fight with that!? :evil:

Clocked up some solid K's over the weekend so I'm feeling much better about myself, thanks, but I'm not trying to lead you astray, just encouraging you to stand up for yourself, to live a life of dignity and honour.

How much longer can you allow that boorish BFV to bully you? You can't even invite BFV over for a BBQ to cordially work out your differences! The only course of action left is to confront the problem head on.

The fact that it might be entertaining for us observers is purely incidental. 8)

I don't drink either, so we can't sit down over a beer. How about a soy latte? We won't invite TTar.

You may care to note that Andy and Claire don't want to ride with you either.

Greetings,

I'm finally back from more travel than a guy ought to have to do, but not completely done yet. I will try to get the Bianchi out for one of these rides but I'm still pretty booked up. I've added my name below:

21-Sat (Rheicel, QV, Minh, BFV, rebilda)
22-Sun (Rheicel, Andy , QV, Minh, Bruce)
28-Sat (Rheicel, Claire, Andy, QV, Bruce, rebilda, Joe)
29-Sun (Rheicel, Andy, QV, Minh, Bruce, rebilda)

The Epping road portion comes within an easy ride from my place so maybe I could do a rolling meet, or maybe it would be best just to meet the group at the start point. Either way, I'll keep an eye as this shapes up.

Joe

Good to hear from you again. Its been forever. I think we are going anticlockwise so Green Rocketman can use the ramps on the Harbour Bridge.

Hi all, hopefully there's room for one more eager rider. I've met Quang already and it would be great to meet a few more people :)
My retro ride is a Bundy frame that is currently getting repainted, so I will be getting around on an oldish Giant bike.

21-Sat (Rheicel, QV, Minh, BFV, rebilda)
22-Sun (Rheicel, Andy , QV, Minh, Bruce)
28-Sat (Rheicel, Claire, Andy, QV, Bruce, rebilda, Joe, Minh, Austyn)
29-Sun (Rheicel, Andy, QV, Minh, Bruce, rebilda, Austyn)

I'm located near the Cooks River path, so I'll probably join in around there depending on how the route goes.

Cheers,
Austyn

It's a little late in life for me to start developing dignity.

I am a little confused as to why you can't invite the vegan over for a BBQ. Sure he might not like what's on offer, but at least he won't drink your good booze :twisted:

Well, I was looking forward to giving a 1930s single-speed an outing, but unfortunately I've consulted the social secretary and most of the days don't suit.

22-Sun Sunday 22nd is Sydney marathon so the bridge will be very difficult to exit on the northern side as that is where the run starts from. It will be chaos for hours until all runners have passed and roads are reopened. So count me out for this Sunday.
