Spurs Blat

Discussion in 'VIC' started by CBRSteve, Mar 4, 2005.

  1. Anyone keen on a Sunday arvo ride through the Black & Reefton Spurs ,Lids & I will be meeting at 1pm at Anaconda (Cnr Bayswater & Canterbury roads) for a 1:15 leave.

    Just a quick squirt through the Black Spur (stopping for break at Marysville) & then up through the Reefton & home from there.

    It will be a social ride (well suited to learners) so if you're up for a tootle through the hills, we'll see you at 1pm
  2. Erbug......I finish work in Mentone at 2 on Sunday.

    :D :D :D

  7. Put me down as a maybe for that one.

  8. If nothing else gets in the way I'll try and come too - guess that makes me a "maybe".
  9. Sorry peoples, if the weather tomorrow is anything like today, I'm out. I'm crap with corners in the dry, hate to see myself tackle them in the wet. No thank you!!

    :D :D
  10. Ahh,but if you learn to take corners in the wet it will make you better in the dry! :p Although,the spur in the wet is not a good idea at all,its mossy enough in the dry!If its not pissing down still,ill be there seeing as anacondas is 2 minutes from my house. :p But i wouldnt hold my breath with this crap bloody weather :evil:

    Just checked Foxtel,they reckon rain till Monday, :( then nice weather again for the rest of the week. :p
  11. G'damn I hate that. Why is it always fine and sunny when I'm f#$@ing working?!?! Damn weather has been getting the best of me all summer... tho I did get a few temperate and dry Sundays in there, fortunately. :p
