    Working on meeting you guys for coffee at Maccas.

    Running behind in getting my gear sorted, trying to find some dry stuff to wear after Friday's rain.

    Can't spare the full day for a ride though.

    Thank you all for making my first ride back into dirt riding so enjoyable. I had a great day out.:clap
    It was great to meet you all and I hope to meet up again soon.
    Really looking forward to the Hill End ride, hope the weather holds up next time.
    Thanks again.:1drink

    Thanks to PeterGSA, Ockrocket, scotty4x4, kickatinalong and of cause the very sexy beelizzy for coming out riding. We didn't make Hill End this weekend but we all had a great ride today.
    Thanks Ockrocket for leading us around. Well leading all but the ratbag bunch of peterGSA and kickatinalong followed closely by scotty4x4, who where the missiles of the day. No crashes which is always a bonus, although beelizzy gave it a shot by over cooking a corner. I managed to put on 5kg via the consumption of one giant sausage roll and 4.75kg of dust.

    Cheers again guys for coming along and hope you all can make it to Hill End in two weeks.

    Hmmmm, I got sucked in to leading again for most of what we did, how the f**k does that work out? :doh

    Serves ya right for pick'n me guys......now you know how slow I really am :rofl

    It was a great ride, thanks PV.

    Nice to meet new faces and catch up with an old [young] one again.

    A nice mix of bikes again, that little 230L does really well and had no problems mixing it with a group of bikes ranging from 990 and down.



    The group stopped at Wheeny Creek after crossing the causeway.

    What happens when you wait until the last second to get that one time "action shot". :deal

    Even though it didn't rain I still got wet...... :huh

    I knew it was going to happen but wanted to try and get as much "wave" in the pic as possible, besides, it gave Pete a chance of some fun trying to drown me. :lol3

    It was a great day out [even though I really shouldn't have gone as I'd arranged to do other things after pulling out of the original Hill End ride].

    Thanks for the good company guys and gal.

    Cheers,
    Ock.

    Your river crossing pic turned out a cracker Scotty. I can send the original if you like. If you want it just pm your email address.

    Looks like a great day out, what was the map or route you all took?
    Would love to go and find the Wheeny Creek crossing/causeway.

    I might also have my work cut out for me with those photos PV Moto.

    cheers

    Link to google map of the route Matty.

    "F" on Comleroy Road is about where Wheeny Creek causeway and camping reserve are located.

    http://goo.gl/maps/HJsmX

    We ran anticlockwise today, but I have often done the route in a clockwise direction as well- with variations, such as Mountain Lagoon Road.

    You can also increase the distance by adding St.Albans-Bucketty-Kulnura-Mangrove Mountain-Spencer and back in to Wiseman's Ferry.

    The route gives a good mix of dirt and tar with nice winding sections, there are assorted "play" areas off the roads in various spots along the way. :evil

    Thanks Ock,

    I have been down some of that route and it did include Cromleroy Road but I'm guessing it was just dry.
    I've kept the map in case I end there without getting to meet up with some of you good folk for a run.

    cheers

    I do the general route on a regular basis Matty, I have some weekdays off this month if you are up for that, or will do a weekend day again soon.
