Raymond Terrace cyclists
« on: August 13, 2010, 10:16:34 am »
Recently moved from Townsville to Raymond Terrace and looking for people interested in mid week rides out that way. Riding a nice 38km loop through Duckenfield, Morpeth and Hinton if your interested or willing to jump into an already organised ride.  Are there any Sunday training / bunch rides around Newcastle or Port Stephens?

There is a quite hard ride that goes through Duckenfield and over to Raymond Terrace on Wednesday mornings, it leaves Broadmeadow race course at 7am and goes through Wallsend roundabout around 7:20, around 7:30 Minmi roundabout Newcastle link road, think we usually get to Raymond terrace around 8:20 will confirm times when I do the ride next.

Here is the old route that takes, recently they have shortened it a tad due to road works and time constraints, it no longer goes out via Black Hill they go up the freeway instead, also they turn at Eales Rd instead of heading up McFarlanes lane.

Looks like a good ride. It would be nice to get some k's back in the legs... Where abouts do you leave from the racecourse?

The bunch generally rides around the race course for a few laps then leaves a bit after 7, when I meet them in there I ride the opposite way to the bunch until I see the group then turn and get onto the back.

boostland - wish i didn't have to work during the day i'd jump in for sure (come to think of it i work both day and nighttime anyway) i usually have school holidays available during the day so if your ever riding this way during school hols give us a yell

surfarobbo - let me know when you get back and we'll see about some rides. Sometimes on a Saturday i meet the Omega pack at Hexham and ride out through Raymond Terrace then out to seaham. Somtimes they split and some ride back while others go through brandy hill, back to the highway and back into Newcastle. You could meet the pack at Raymond Terrace if you didn't want to ride into town first. They usually update the course on the Omega cycles website

Surfarobbo,

You must be in the RAAF son and gone AWOL, or pissed on the Sergeants shoes, to lose the post from Townsville to Ramo. It's like being sent to the Russian front. Tip from The Ferret, fail your next psyche test and get an honourable discharge. Have a look at all the ADF boys riding around Newcastle........definitely something missing. Shalom

Your friend

The Ferret

PS Are you sure you're not a Sergeant, because you're making my privates stand at attention. Shalom

Ferret,

Im a mining engineer but met a heap of good people from the defence industry when in TSV. I grew up in Ramo, so i dont mind it.

hey mate - did you enjoy your ride with the Omega pack? I have had bronchitis so haven't been able to go out for a ride for nearly a month. Its amazing how quickly you lose fitness and put on 5 kg without riding. Not sure when i will be better as i have some problem with my immune system and stay sick for long periods of time. I will get back to you

Cheers
