Hey PB

 

How long did you guys drive for yesterday?


An idea for a shorter run would be through National Park down to Scarborough Hotel either leaving early for a breakfast drive or a little later for lunch.
It's about 1.5-2hrs outside of the CBD.

Thanks

John

Hi John

The actual group drive from Windsor to Wiseman's was only about 45mins.
There is another way to get there and I came back that way, it takes about 1:45 from Wiseman's to the start of the Old Pac Hwy.

We haven't had a run down south for a while so that could be a goer.

I personally think a run with a group drive of around 2 would work well.

Cheers

PB

+ 1 for a run through the Royal National Park down to Scarborough Hotel.

 

Would be ideal to do this early morning as the traffic can get pretty heavy on weekends.

Yep, lock me in for the Natio.
Gotta be early to beat those cyclist speed jumps though.

Bathurst is great idea, drove back via Bells Line today.
I was thinking of a run to Bathurst timed to align with "Challenge Bathurst 2016" at the start of December.

Sounds like we have a plan.
I will have a look at timing and meeting places etc and modify the first post with proposed time, attendees etc.

No chance of beating them. They'll be heading back when we're heading south. :-/

Yeah, they get a real early start up this way as well. We will just need to watch out for the slower road users.

Very fitting. Just got into bed and listening to some bikes giving it some up Audley hill.

Not sure if you have a specific meet up location yet PB but if you're after one maybe consider Southgate shopping centre Sylvania.

Down the road from Loftus and at that time in the morning should be pretty empty.

Here's a map a spent hours on working out the entry points.

Loftus Oval carpark is probably easier. Right next to Farnell Av. (RNP entry) and always enough space.

Good idea, is there an easy way from there to head south?

Hi

 

Have changed the date to June 5th so as not to clash with travel plans.

Hope no one minds

 

Cheers

 

PB
