Looks great Baza ...

And in case you're looking for an excuse to try it out, there should be a ride next Thursday (23rd) - maybe a big bike friendly coast loop ...

Forecast max of 22C - and hopefully a few spots of rain in the days prior to settle the dust and soften the track ...

Somewhat better riding conditions than this week ...

Thinking about stirring things up out @ Kowen Forest Ride this year, 'Kenny' hasn't been out for awhile in the dirt

Last minute ride tomorrow.
Leaving from Bungendore servo 9.30 for Tarago, Nerriga, Nowra, Cambewarra.
I'll be scouting the return trip clockwise: Windellama, Bungonia, Marulan, Tallong, Long Point Lookout, Bundanoon, Exeter, Werai, Fitzroy Falls.
Then either Wildes Meadow, Robertson Pie Shop, Jamberoo, Berry, Cambewarra, Kangaroo Valley or directly to Kangaroo Valley and Cambewarra.
Tag along either way. Apart from my R100GSPD all road bikes going so far.

I don't really understand the costing - the $165 includes a year of DSMRA membership, but what if you are already a member ... ?

Like I said, it's a lot of kms in a tank, especially when it's frugal machine on fuel,
might pass, getting too old for doing silly things these days, wait until I build that XL500R that's sitting along with all my other projects
Taking a month off in March so might get a few Kms in just motoring around the local roads north of here, maybe a two day overnighter up with the Bathurst Blokes one weekend?????
Cheers

Your membership gets extended a year. I have the same problem. My membership renewal is Feb.

Some of us are working on changing this so DSMRA membership and Kowen ride are not "married", but you will still have to be a financial member to enter the Kowen ride. Some committee members are fixed on the idea that Kowen must always be a "membership drive". So for now Kowen ride entry fee will include $55 annual membership fee.

There are lots of reasons why we had to increase the Kowen ride fee by $15 this year. Just for example, we now have to use 200 micron laminate on the arrows to guarantee forestry that all staples will come out of the tree WITH the arrow when removed. Not only does this mean we cant reuse last year's arrows made with 85 micron laminate, its going to cost more than twice as much to make the new ones. There is a new ranger in charge and it's all different this year.

Might be interested in this ride, I'm not a member though.
Can you just rock up on the day and pay or is it advisable to get in early and lock in a spot. I imagine it is limited number wise
