Hi Marc,

Myself and 2 other clowns are booked into the Motel for Saturday night. I will definitely meet you Saturday morning for the ride, but one or maybe both of the others have to work Saturday morning and will meet us at Wellington for the night games, then ride with us on Sunday. They are talking about a second night somewhere, so if I can afford another night we might split off somewhere on sunday. I am coming down from Newcastle way, so Mt Victoria is probably the closest spot for me to meet you, unless it is only us meeting and you know a shortcut somewhere.

Right done all the comparing and I think just meeting you guys at Mt Vic will be fine, can you still give us the route so we can put it in the GPS please Marc.

Should be fun, oh and apparently Wellington will be busy.
Cheers Baz.

Not sure where youre coming from but Im assuming Central Coast way?
Maybe come via Wollombi Rd, St Albans, Wheelbarrow Ridge, Colo Heights Road, Mountain Lagoon which comes out on the Bells Line at Bilpin?

Long weekend, spoke to the owner of the Cow n Calf hotel he reckons there's a few things going on, Ness booked the last room at the Motel and I didn't know so I was ringing around for other accommodation and got talking to him and others.

I guess we'll know how busy when we get there.
Cheers Baz.

I have ridden those roads a few times and know them well. I think I might just come down the expressway from Newcastle otherwise I will have to leave before sun up to make our 9am meeting.

What side of the Lake are you coming from?? if you're coming the freeway go the Bells Line of Road from Richmond, it's quicker for you.

I am coming from the west of Lake Macquarie so expressway to Richmond is the way I was planning too. 7:20 at McGraths Hill might work :thumb:
