Sure - if you are sure you want to follow me :D What way would you come from Forest Lake Le Velo? Can either meet at the intersection of Algester and Beaudesert Road (Servo on the corner) - since we will be heading east down beaudesert to compton road? If you are in then post here and we can pm private details later.

Schrums, I can try to hang on pending on the speed you planning to do but it sure does look like that you have more ks in the legs than I do but I can sit on 30k average for such distance ride quit ok
I think from forest lake I can get to the beau desert intersection from Leroy road
Are people planning to ride Sunday?
What time is the meet there?
Confirm a meeting place
Happy to make an effort and tag along
Might have another friend coming along too
Weather should be good too

Any takers on the ride? Cmon people !

Coffee - Hows about the coffee club at Wello point on the turn around.

Le Velo - Its a group ride not a race... we will be fine - Would be good to get a regular thing going so definitely not going to scare anyone off - if we go slower thats fine - if we get lost we will be slower :D

I'm still in.

Given were practically neighbors, I'm thinking I can meet Le Velo and others at the corner of Blunder and Inala / King Avenue at the seryo station (assuming you'll be coming down Blunder from Forest lake)........say about 6:00 to 6:15am...Le Velo can confirm on location and time.

We will then ride towards the top of Comption Road were we can meet others if this is more convenient im guessing we'll be there about 6:30 - 6:40ish.......then we go for a spin.

Servo blunder road sounds like a good meeting point for most of the guys around
I'll be coming from forest lake and was planning to leave at 6 so should be there by 6:15 but if meeting earlier is needed let us know, then yes we will then head off to from ton road from there and pick up the rest of the crew.
Sounds good ......

I will meet you across the road from the servo on the cnr of Beaudesert and Algester road around 6:25am and tag on. I will be on Black Carbon Felt F5 with a blue and white jersey on.

Looking forward to this ride as it will give me a chance to finally catch up with some members on this great forum. :D

All - The algester guys will meet you at the traffic lights on the corner of algester and beaudesert roads (Mobil servo) at 6.25 or thereabouts. (I mapped the route and it will be about 35 to 40ks one way to wellington point. So a shortish ride out.)

Temp is expected to be min of 7degrees on Sunday - what the. I will have a long sleeve jersey on - whimping out. We are stopping at the coffee shop at wellington point so bring some coin if you want a cuppa.

I'm on

Yeh sure - bike with full DI2 - hmmmm... Its an easy "get to know you" ride me thinks...

Then if you want to go from Parkinson to Redcliffe back via Gateway and logan we can do that on another weekend. Thats 140 to 150 ks.

At least it will be fine - Not looking forward to a wet ride to work tomorrow...

Don't be fooled by the di2. i came to relize that i'll never be able to afford a Ferrari....so i bought a nice bike.
i do like to go fast but i don't compete, for me its just about the rhythm between the lungs, legs and heart.

I hope the sprint is up a climb, I might be in with a chance if that is the case. See you Sunday morning. :D
