    Ride Report for the last ride for Winter 17

    It could not have been a more perfect day --Sun shining, virtually no breeze  and just a slight chill in the air
    My ride up to Hungrys at Tuggerah was only altered by the fact that the giant roundabout at the Tuggerah intersection has finally gone and traffic lights now make traffic movement less hazardrous,
    Lew.Mick Peter and Neville joined myself as we rode off into Wyong along the rivers edge and onto Hue Hue Rd
    We kept a steady pace passing rows of paper bark trees then into a canopy of trees which completely cover the road and as we approached Wyee signs warned us of "Smoke Haze ahead" with the controlled burn offs the rural fire brigades have
    No sign of fires but the acrid odour of smoke filled the air until we passed Wyee and headed back towards the coast at Budgewoi .
    Roadworks have occurred at various points along this stretch with new kerbing etc and someone with a large stensil of a pushbike has painted pushbikes along many sections of the road
    We rode on down past the cemetery at Norahville where it is said the remains of Jenny Dixon lay buried and along Wilfred Barrett Dr into Magenta then over the bridge to The Entrance
    We parked close to the central hub of the Entrance and proceeded to the Tuna Fish café where they honestly make a fabulous cup of coffee
    Some chatter on what was going on in our boring lives then homeward bound with several of us going in different directions
    It is always a pleasure to ride over the Rip Bridge and the sun was reflecting so brightly in the waters off Woy Woy
    Home was approx. 4pm with roughly 120klms more on my trip meter
    The day was capped off with a brilliant win by the Swans over Carlton with big Buddy kicking 10 goals.
    Topday great company ,shame more didn't join us ,but maybe next time
    So now into SPRING in a few days time when the thoughts of men and women turnto having more fun and activity in life Like more riding ,surfing fishing Football finals relationships with other boys and girls and more Riding


    riding for fun
