10 hours away from home and just over 300Km of fantastic riding and great company.
Thanks Karl for organising and the other riders that made it a great day out.
Not one dropped or broken down bike all day.
Getting ready to roll.
Kurrajong Heights lookout.
Great riding weather
The open road at 'Cutrock"
Green countryside after the recent rain.
Adjusting tyre pressure as the dirt begins.
And the bridge that goes over it.
Get out of the wheel tracks and the gravel is like marbles.
A few optional challenges along the way.
Well groomed track.
Well known track.
Another optional track to the lookout.
Not as easy as it looks for some.
The rock lookout, Beautiful.
Crossing the first ferry at Webs Creek.
Lunch stop at Wisemans Ferry.
Second ferry trip across the hawkesbury river.
The road to ourselves.
One of the oldest cemetery in the area, Early 1800's
Beats the city.
St Albans. Is that atgreg at the table checking up on us?
St Albans common.
Last stop at Jerrys Kulnura
Thoroughly enjoyed the day out.

Gee, you were quick getting that lot uploaded Wayne.
I've only just got my pics and vids downloaded to the computer from the camera [work preparations for tomorrow interfered tonight].
I will get some up in the next few days.
Great day with a great group of riders, no heroes and no derro's,
Looking forward to the chance to do it again somewhere soon.
Thanks for the RR.
Early alarm for me in the morning so time I threw the off switch.

Few more pics from the day...
Again thanks everyone for a very sane and enjoyable day
It all started like this
Wayne thickening the plot..
The instigator Karl (Karlxx), Steve (ock-strom/rocket), and
Big boys to the right, little boys to the left
A bit of Gnarly time for the non "noobs"
Some people know their limits..
No one warned the PIG riders of course
Are these Dr Mel Jurds ancestors? Did they know about Jungle Juice even then?

Thanks for the memory trigger.

But did you notice the Macdonalds sign has changed between photos.
This could be due to the spooky southern hemispherical effects present in our area of the world.
