    We timed that well @BygDaddee.@
    All nice and easy yesterday, but perhaps a bit different by tomorrow.

    But I reckon I know enough to know that I never ever want to know more than I know now. Anyway, not enough coffee shops!

    @Dean Ohlin
    Dave, you're grammatically particular. How can you let the thread title go on like this? Every time I see it I've got to practice deep breathing.

    The State Govt mapping I have has it as Grigors Rd right from Maleny-Kenilworth Rd all the way through.

    Yes it does vary according to the source. On my phone, Siri calls that corrugated stretch Grigorrrrrrs.

    But I think @Blakduk was referring to the fact that I had originally spelled it "Grigprs. Nobody has a "p" in it.....well actually, I did on Thursday, but I think that's more a matter of etiquette than grammar or spelling.

    Theres a simple answer, less typing of and more riding of the road names and it will pale into insignificants

    I don't worry about road names and stuff. I just follow the cloud of dust on the distance.

    Been a bit more rain up here, but apart from a few greasy spots, I can't see how it will bother any of us legends if we take our time.
    On another note, that 6.9% Hard Cider knocks one about on an empty stomach. (It's taken me 5 minutes to type and correct this post).

    Near perfect conditions after last nights rain. Only hit the western end of Bellthorpe though.

    Thanks @Cruz for making some calls and organising some track grading, light showers of rain and lantana removal on various sections before our ride today. Conditions were perfect.
