Sydney Noob Run 18th November

10 hours away from home and just over 300Km of fantastic riding and great company.
Thanks Karl for organising and the other riders that made it a great day out.
Not one dropped or broken down bike all day.


Getting ready to roll.



Kurrajong Heights lookout.




Great riding weather



The open road at 'Cutrock"




Green countryside after the recent rain.



Adjusting tyre pressure as the dirt begins.



Quick rest.



Colo river.



And the bridge that goes over it.




Get out of the wheel tracks and the gravel is like marbles.




A few optional challenges along the way.




Well groomed track.




Well known track.




Another optional track to the lookout.




Not as easy as it looks for some.




The rock lookout, Beautiful.




Crossing the first ferry at Webs Creek.




Lunch stop at Wisemans Ferry.




Second ferry trip across the hawkesbury river.









The road to ourselves.




One of the oldest cemetery in the area, Early 1800's




Beats the city.




St Albans. Is that atgreg at the table checking up on us?




St Albans common.




Last stop at Jerrys Kulnura





Spencer.


Thoroughly enjoyed the day out.

Gee, you were quick getting that lot uploaded Wayne.

I've only just got my pics and vids downloaded to the computer from the camera [work preparations for tomorrow interfered tonight].

I will get some up in the next few days.

Great day with a great group of riders, no heroes and no derro's,

Looking forward to the chance to do it again somewhere soon.

Thanks for the RR.

Early alarm for me in the morning so time I threw the off switch.

Ock.

That is so awesome! They have McDonald's in Australia.

And the sign hangs right side up.

But did you notice the Macdonalds sign has changed between photos.
This could be due to the spooky southern hemispherical effects present in our area of the world.

A great day ride. I live out Richmond way and I'd be keen to come long on the next ride. Well done with all the photos too.
