Iâ€™m hoping to get a few bikes together for a Newcastle/Hunter ride-out for this Sunday 1st June. Assuming that the weather forecast is good, it would be great if we could get a few of us Newcastle and Hunter based bikes out together. The initial plan is to leave Hexham McDonalds at 9.30am, head up the NEH and Golden Highway to Broke, then take the Putty Rd down to Wollombi. Weâ€™ll stop at the Wollombi Tavern for a pie and a pint then work our way back through Cessnock. For those with kids and commitments I would anticipate being back in Newcastle for 1.30 â€“ 2.00pm although this is up to you. The road takes in some long straights and a few good twisties, and I would anticipate being (mainly) on the speed limit for most of the journey. Itâ€™ll be suitable for most bike sizes and abilities. Who's in?
