So unhappy

Am really upset at not being able to make this event (am being nice because is family website)would have been good to catch up with everyone and was so looking forward to another one of steve`s rides after the last little ride.Haven`t seen a lot of the guys since lions road might get lucky and a freak storm come through and wipe the course out or i might get sick.Either way have a great weekend everyone sure there will be lots of pics ( and don`t forget your machine wobbly)

Snacks, nibbles Saturday arvo

Just wanted to thro this out there and let everyone know that we haven't catered for snack/nibbles saturday arvo.

So if you haven't already thought to do so, could everyone bring along a packet of chips, nuts, jatz etc to put onto the communal table.

Just to reassure everyone we have organised the food for the breakfast.
Bacon n egg or Sausage sandwich, BBQ and Tomato sauce, tea and coffee and full strength milk. Also plastic plates. knives, forks and spoons and disposable cups.

Reminder the first bus off the farm for the pub will be leaving at 5:30pm NSW time.

Everyone have a safe and enjoyable ride. See you when you arrive.

Cheers

Thanks Brett

Breaky sounds great Brett, we can collect the breaky $$ for you at camp. I am leaving at 10am, loosing an hour, stopping-off for lunch and traversing Lions Rd, Red Neddy, Sandman and I should be at camp to set up tents by 2.30pm-ish. We may do a local (70km) loop ride via Koreelah after that (depends on the heat etc). We will bring some snack/nibbles.

Cheers and thanks

On the (gravel) road to Urbenville

McGuyver can't make it for Saturday night, but will meet us at Ripples on the Creek cafe, Lions Rd (also called Grady’s Creek Road). It's about 3kms south of Simes Rd cnr (where we come out on Lions Rd after Border Ranges). Might be 1-2 other BNE riders with him.

If anyone else is in the area around about then, please join us for a minor birthday celebration coffee. Some of the southerners who arrive Fri might want to come over for a morning ride. The Lions Road is well worth doing.

I'm guessing we'll arrive at the cafe around noon NSW time (plus or minus 1/2 hr, barring any mishaps or flat tires etc). We'll get there when we do, and see whoever is there.

Also, heard from Chef. He's joining us from Tyalgum and hopes to get as far as Brett's for a short time in the afternoon before he has to head back home.

Road conditions

I have attached a PDF from Kyogle Council about their Road works.

The upper part of the Summerland Way between Dairy Flat and the T junction with Mt Lindsay Hwy has suffered some damage due to the heat over the last week or so and they have placed a type of sand over parts of the road.

Be careful, also there are some long cracks in this part of the road as well. I followed a bike up there yesterday and he touched one of these cracks with his front tyre and I thought it was going to buck him off, he managed to hang on just, this crack was reasonably wide and may swallow lesser bikes.

VStroms will be fine.

I will catch up with Daryl today and may arrange the pick up a bit later after experiencing yesterday afternoon down at the camp. Will angle for 6:15 or there abouts NSW time.

Enjoy the ride and ride safe

Cheers

Woke up to a cool morning, over cast sky chance of rain later in the day. Approximate top of 28/29 degree. Great riding weather.

Darren and Cindy arrived yesterday afternoon.

Have a safe ride down or up today.

Cheers

We might get a little damp methinks...
I might have to rethink the Peacock Creek part of the trip down.
