Yes it will be the Akuna bay ride as there will be less traffic.
I think 26th of december would be good.
I am just waiting on some more responses on the dates.
trailgumby. It should be a nice pace, I didn't know your back was giving you trouble again.

Recovery from collarbone break aside, yeah, I'm not riding to work at the moment. Just doing spin classes to get the effort in as it allows me to focus on keeping my core stable without distraction from little things like ... traffic :shock: . Need to stop re-injuring myself if I'm gonna get better :oops:

A potential bailout opportunity is:

1. Read the title of the thread "Sydney girls Ride"
2. Realise that you are not a girl and bailout now

Thus the poor girls don't have to put up with someone who doesn't meet two of the three components of the ride: 'is a girl', 'can ride' (i.e., you are injured.)

You seem to be reading something into my posts that isn't there. Apple has taken it in the spirit intended - a self-deprecating piss-take (which *includes* the fact it is an obvious political correctness fail) - not quite sure why you seem to want to be offended on her behalf?

Road riding is not like mtb where losing a rider in an isolated bush environment can result in a helicopter being summoned. We'll manage!

In the meantime the company will be different to my usual and good fun. :D

OK so are we all happy with the 2nd of January, 6.45 am riding off, Make sure you have drinks and fruit or a power bar, it will be a long ride and very hilly, Mona Vale rd, Akuna, West head and church point back to Mona vale road St Ives.
I am sure the girls don't mind if any of the guys come, the beauty of this ride is that you can go as hard or slow as you want. :D

I think that one is West head. Don't worry you will be fine, just go at your own pace, the ride is one that you will continue to see each other, the area is all connected.

nah i mean when you ride the other direction so go past west head, into akuna bay and ride out, just past the gate at the top theres a right hand turn which goes up and up and then down to a dead end.]

maybe thats cottage point.. hmmn. not sure.

There's a possibility my young bloke may want us to take a trip up to Forster that weekend, in which case I may miss the ride. Mark me as tentative, will confirm closer to the date.

Great, looks like all the Sydney girls are coming to this ride.
Hey Grasshopper, my friend Di is also coming, if she can get her ass out of bed :roll:
She can talk to you about the Audax classic, she did the 240km a few years ago and she loved it.
