    Summer of Riding

    Last summer, Mr G did a reckie of the 6 dams run after having done the 5 ferries jaunt.

    It's time we set a date and tackled this ride - eh Mr G...

    And then we can do the 23 bridges and the 30 something surf clubs... or all the harbour beaches (particularly Obelisk Bay coz it has family significance)... and then after that we can go have a drink in the Sydney NRL clubs or visit some war memorials - who knew there are 41 memorials in the 2000 postcode alone Indifferent

    We're gonna have one busy summer Cool

    Whatcha reckon Pete - wanna do some route planning?

    That's a great site - i put all my European trips on there when it was first launched.

    Unfortunately it got a bit jammed up with rubbish and repeats of the same rides... needs a damn good index Wink

    Isn't Obelisk bay a nudist beach. Hmmmm, We could do the 4 nudist beaches. Cobblers, Reef, Obelisk and Lady Jane.

    As far as the 6 Dams is concerned I did a recco one afternoon and got three of them, Woronora, Cataract and Cordeaux. Great picnic grounds, Just need to link up with Avon and Nepean then head back north to Warragamba then east to home. Linz did put it up on the map website. Id like to do it. It requires a little back tracking around Wilton area but its an interesting run if you like art decco public works.
