I guess if there is a large turn out we could run smaller groups in 10 minute intervals or something.

Ill register interest when I'm sure I haven't been booked in for something already - but I wont turn up unannounced.

Cheers,

Ian

That would be the plan, Ian
just so we don't get in each others way or anyone elses too much

I can change the max rider limit if there's a lot of interest
i just wasn't sure how many to put down

Well I've been given the all clear so I'm in.

Ill let my mate Dave know as well but he's back at work (shift work) so he might not make it.

Cheers,

Ian

Doesn't look good with the weather Sad

Has there been much rain out there and does anyone know how this is after rain?

Chuck's picture

We got 35mm of rain yesterday and only 1-2mm today. I'll be out there tomorrow night, so I'll let you know how it looks.

But Saturday is bad and Sunday very bad
This is looking iffy
Stay tuned

Depending on the track we might be lucky as the warning for Sydney is now Sunday afternoon.

The single track was fine tonight, just the usual puddles after rain and fairly firm elsewhere. Will be great over the next few days if the rain holds off.

Also, saw a nice big fat Wombat at Euroka tonight.

rain has been pretty heavy up the top tonight.
What's it been like down glenbrook way

it looks like the rain is getting worse and not better
Will the causeway be open tomorrow if the rain is heavy tonight

I'm still yet to call this - what do we reckon
But I'm thinking it looks iffy

If we ride it in the wet
Does it f*&% up the trail

Chuck's picture

We had very little rain today and only a couple of mm over night. The causeway was fine last night and it would be no worse than carry your bike unless it really rains heavy tonight.

There's a passing shower/storm just south of Glenbrook at the moment but the forecast looks ok.

A couple of guys have got an hour and half drive

Looks like we're riding unless something happens tonight

Is it cold, Michael?
Pretty bloody cold up here

Chuck's picture

Ok, I will post the weather conditions at 7:30am. It's 14°C and drizzly at the moment.

Just make sure we send the visitors down first, they can knock the water off the low branches for us. Eye-wink

Chuck's picture

I can see blue sky, weather radar looks clear and forecast says "mostly cloudy".

See you out there!

Brian's picture

Excellent, see you soon Smiling
