Ok, a couple changes.

Thunderdownunder - glad your brother can come along.
RTLiney (Stu) has pulled out (clash with a work doo on Saturday) EDIT: and suspected broken toes after a fall off the bike yesterday.

Had lunch at the Crown yesterday as part of a TeamMoto adv ride. Stinking hot day so I surveyed the site and gave Daryl the ok to start digging. Hope it's ready by Saturday. (photo should appear below)



The puppies were there and look to be in good health.

Now, er, an announcement from me. I will be celebrating my 50th birthday this weekend. My wife is away at the moment, so I will take the opportunity on Saturday night to celebrate the occassion.

Default Getting there from Gold Coast, and a Saturday ride.

Here's my draft plan for getting there:

Leave Gold Coast 7:30, to Tyalgum, then Mebbin State, Border Ranges, Lions Rd, Toonumbar Forest Rd, over the top & down Coxs Rd to Summerland Way.

Then more gravel via Glen Rd (BrettStrom's shortcut) and Boomi Crk Rd into Urbenville.

Even going hard top, it's 3 hrs (200 km) so adding in the gravel bits, it will be about 5 hrs. Steadily plodding on will be the order of the day. Due to a slightly faster pace, probably not suitable to beginners. BYO lunch & drink. Should be in Urbenville by early-mid afternoon NSW time. Anyone want to come with me?

Chef, have you organised an off-road loop?

Brett, any ideas for the latte set? The only cafe I know of near your place is Killarney & Queen Mary Falls, but I thought that's a good route home on Sunday morning so do something different Saturday afternoon eg, perhaps down to Bonalbo Pub (1/2 hr each way) or to Drake (an hour each way).

Wiangaree store has a good coffee or onto Kyogle to the Box and Dice cafe. It would appear most will get here mid to late afternoon Saturday and plan a route down or up therefore they may only be time for a short run that afternoon around this area if those are interested and with people making plans for the route home on Sunday.

Either way Christmas drinks start about 3-4pm Saturday NSW Time on the farm, I wont be riding to far that afternoon.

Cheers

Default Well well, the big 50.

I just had my 50th a few weeks back Steve. All good so far, at least I am officially an old bugger and can legally winge when it hurts to get up. It will be a good night.

Red Neddy, Sandman 61 and I are leaving late AM so we will not be able to do run you plan, but we will be there mid afternoon at the farm to help start the celebration. Keep an eye out for 1 red, 1 blue, 1 gold Strom if your at the farm as I am only guessing the whereabouts from the pub, we might call in and stock up and get directions.

See you when we see you! Trevor

Bad news is I'm broke had to pull all my savings and only just had the cash, bad news is I don't even have the bucks to get home this week end from work never lone come this week end so with great disappointment I have to pull out, I wish you all a merry Christmas and Steve a very happy birthday and will be thinking of you all while I have fun just looking at my new bike while stuck in Toowoomba.
