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

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

First topic message reminder :

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

my guess would be 1030 for a planned departure at 1045 for a planned arrival at Broke about 1200
not sure if we are having lunch at broke or grey gums cafe?
not sure if Potatomasher is still joining us, I'd be leaving PITS at about 0930-0945

If there are only 3 starters, I might make the effort to meet you guys at Kulnurra, as much as I'm over the Yarramalong Road.

Although there is the possibility of one more starter from Raymond Terrace, so I may need to work in with him. Smile

Always carry my wets. You can never trust what the skinny blond girl at the end of the news says.

WARNING - Went to the Hunter today for a helicopter ride and came home via Broke & Wollombi. Please be careful on the new bit of road (dirt gone) just north of Wollombi as there is lots & lots of gravel all over the road.

Take care and have a good ride.

Thanks Linda, went through there a couple of weeks ago and the SUVs (and one Harley) cutting the corners were more of a challenge! Shocked
