.. by fat finger technology
Tempted for a Sunday ride?
@doc dogg , you're going already so I can't or it would be a cold windy day
Any way abit early for me, beauty sleep and all that ...
By the time we ride through Gunning it will be a more respectable hour
I've had too many warm and still days, I'm due a cold windy one
I might get up there for lunch, but won't know till the morn what I'm doing (as usual)
I shall attempt to provide a pie critique in your absence........ I am fond of pies...
Hi all, will be juggling a few other commitments around to try and make it. FYI, just went to the link to google maps but it only showed a straight route to berrima, Gumnut patisserie...any comments on the route would be appreciated. Cheers from a thin blooded Queenslander
@Sammo i'm sure @doc dogg can give you more details, he suggested me the ride and said there are good roads, hope to see u tomorrow

If you go back to the initial entry under "New Members - G'day" you'll find the whole route still there. Seems OK to me from the Events site as well.
My description of the route:
Relatively open two-lane blacktop through grazing country without much traffic until Marulan. Not a lot to see, not a lot of undulation or bends. Then more traffic and quaint little villages through the Southern Highlands. Berrima is very pretty with a few huge pines and plenty of arty-crafty, nick-knacky, tea shops et cetera.
At this time of year the leaves on the deciduous trees in the highlands should be looking spectacular.
Long Point Lookout at Tallong would be the high point of the trip for me, although it is off the route by 6 kilometres and has a kilometre of dirt at the end. But the view over the Shoalhaven and Bungonia Gorge is terrific. Well worth the diversion.
good suggestion but my bike is NOT a 4wd so no dirt riding for me..
Neither is mine
have a good ride chaps ...
I might have to turn this into an adventure and ride the scooter
I've decided to spend today taking the wheels off and preparing them for new tyres.
@doc dogg not coming.....hope the tyre change goes ok ;-)
Someone got the route loaded?? I haven't been that way before....
It is a fairly easy route to follow if you print out the google map. If you get lost it is all part of the adventure, plus you can always head towards the highway and take up the route further down the road
tx for the ride guys, it was good to put more faces to handles. sorry we 'dumped' you at Goulburn. Hope the rest of the ride went well
Home safe & sound.......thanks all for the ride, especially @DJ & @Imagine for joining me on the Goulburn - Berrima - Tarago - Bungendore loop....was a great day!
The drive through the highlands was absolutely beautiful!
@Ron50 - Fantastic tip on the Tallong lookout;
And equally as importantly (to be honest, at the time, it was FAR MORE important), lunch;
On the left I give you a Steak & Mushroom Pie - Pastry was outstanding, flaky and buttery without being heavy. Steak in nice size chunks, plenty of mushrooms....gravy slightly disappointing, seemed a little bit of a generic bulk produced type. Overall, 7.5/10 (may have taken of half a point cause I really wanted Steak & Kidney, but they were out).
On the right, Lemon Meringue Pie - Everything was tasty about this one. Nice tart case, nice tangy lemon filling, nice crispy on the outside, soft on the inside meringue. Only problem was the quantities....far too much meringue for not enough tart filling. 6/10
Worth a visit
