Expressions of Interest: Ride to Broke and Putty Rd 4th November

Post  Re-Cycled on Mon 24 Sep 2012, 8:18 pm

This ride now locked in for 4th November, I will ride to Wollombi and meet any Central Coast riders then continue on to Broke and Grey Gum Cafe. We need a show of hands so we can work out meeting times to help Sydney riders who have a choice of a Putty out and back or a full loop. Please let me know your preferred option and we will try and accommodate as many as possible. Very Happy

Warning: Central Coast riders may be disoriented by the lack of roundabouts.


I have decided to unhijack Ross' thread and post here. Smile

Firstly, I see a lot of Bandits around Newcastle, but I always seem to be working and they always seem to be doing something serious like commuting. I wish I could tag a few so we could organise some Novocentric rides ( I just made that word up, impressive ehh?).

Mr Hoffo liked my idea of a Rylstone Ride, not that we could ride together from our polar opposite staring points, maybe that's the attraction. Laughing

Rylstone is 269km one way for me, I've done a lunch run there before but if others want to meet up, it could end up being quite a long ride eg a detour through Wollombi makes it 300km one way.

Another option is lunch at Grey Gums Cafe on the Putty Road, if there are enough Newcastle and Central Coast riders, we could converge at Wollombi, then lunch at Grey Gums, which takes in the twisties between Wollombi and Broke as well as The Putty's Greatest Hits. The Coasties get the added bonus of Kullnura to Wollombi. I get a more manageable 183km one way and any Sydney riders can complete the loop (or get defected on the OPH Smile).

So who's keen and what do you think. Question Question Question Question Question

Serving Suggestion

I thinking of meeting the Central coasties at Wollombi then going out to Grey Gums and back, are you thinking a loop? Maybe you'd be better to ride up The Putty meet us at Broke then ride back, twice the fun! Smile Depending on fuel range you could make it interesting and meet us somewhere. Very Happy

I'm working this weekend but I'm clear the next 4 weekends. Ross do you want to pick one since you only have 1 in 4 off?

OK, are you up for a ride, hopefully some other Newcastle/Central Coast riders will join in. I can probably organise my brother and one other Bandit [Boozer].

I think Grey Gums on the Putty Road is our destination, although maybe for afternoon tea/ coffee? to fit in with the Sydney guys.

So if the Sydney guys come up the Putty and have lunch at Broke or somewhere else, you guys will know the timing from your end better than me. I'm happy to ride down to Grey Gums for coffee. Maybe meet Ross at Kulnurra or Wollombi?

Anyone got a better plan?

As for preference on route, I'll wait to see what the others are doing.

I'm keen at this stage to meet at Wollombi.

I'll be just back from Phillip Island though & after more than 3000 k's in a week I might not want to even look at the bike let alone get on it again so soon Very Happy

Will let you know a day or two before hand.

Cheers,

So? Broke for lunch? You have about 80km further to go to get there than we do. You've done it enough times, how long does it take you to get there?

Anyone from Sydney doing a loop?
