Cycling in Sydney Australia
The Bilpin Ride is on in 11 days time and since the Sackville shop is closed I will be supporting the ride. Details not complete yet but I'll have refreshments for both ride distances near the Sackville Ferry.
Because I'm supporting the ride and don't want to miss out on riding one of the most challenging 200s on the calendar I'll be riding the course this weekend.
Most of you won't know this but I like to make a ride plan including food, water and times between CPs. This will be particularly important for me as I will only have one place to top up food and water for the return 100km.
several roads out Rouse Hill and Windsor way are being closed due to water covering them, it is highly possible Wheeny Creek is not so creek like at this point in time so no volunteer ride today.
Shame. I was thinking of joining you on the Lynskey. After all, in such superb weather conditions I can think of only a few things more pleasant than riding 200km on a hilly route including steep, rough and unsealed roads.
it is obvious that at least 3 people are not out riding this morning.
There is a bit of a cloud hanging over next weeks ride as well Bill.
Where are all these shops? The 200km course has St Albans at 88km, Wisemans Ferry at 108km and there are a few places along River Rd I think. But nothing at Sackville and nothing from there on.
For the 116km course there is no store, I'm certain.
I'm OK with this, but are others?
creek crossings weren't the only problem out there today.
great info Bill, thank you. I'll put this on the cue sheet and documentation tonight.
