    I think they assume that bikes just make their own tracks ...<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    The map is great for planning, but these days it’s hard to go past GPS - with the Google satellite view in the background for a reality check ...<o:p></o:p>

    That was my immediate reaction and almost posted what stuser did, but they do qualify it with:
    "and anyone who wants to explore the region's extensive public forest estate"

    Of course the map also includes the various national parks too, so I guess the dog owners need to know where they can't go.

    I think my copy came from what is now BCF in Fyshwick, but that was a while ago now....

    :rilla

    You are assuming the jocks belonged to Baz.

    :happay

    They could just as easily belong to a mate.

    :robin

    I didn't know you were a peeping tom either.

    Freeballers Rule, I am partly Scottish, another part is Danish & they run around whipping themselves with birch branches - stark naked in the snow, :eek1

    Total Fire Ban for today, think I'll hang around home [in my jocks], and get some work done, :lol3
    do this ride on Monday when it's a bit cooler, bad karma being out on a bike in the countryside on a total fire ban day, :eek1
    Cockies are always jittery & cranky on hot days :lol3

    Ride Sat Morning

    I’ll be doing a loop tomorrow morning around Drs Flat / Sawyer’s Gully.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    Coming from Gundaroo, via back roads to M’Bateman and then Dog Trap / Cavan / Glenrock.<o:p></o:p>

    Probably leave Gundaroo about 8:30 – fuel up again at M’Bateman on the way home (circa 220km).<o:p></o:p>

    If anyone feels like a little run, let me know during the day.<o:p></o:p>

    Good plan ...<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    Your place at about 8:30am ... ?
    Directions received by PM - will probably go via Long Rail Gully, etc ...
    Grave concerns about the whole dancing / underpants thing – will leave the bike running – it all goes downhill once you cross the Barton H’way ...<o:p></o:p>

    I sense a theme developing here Davo. And fair enough too, with all these Yasstafarians confessing their underpants-hating nudist affilliations.
