Rob, you are taking 'easy rider' to a whole new level! Eye-wink

Akuna Bay with West Head would be a better option as opposed to just Bobbo on it's own. Just 'clone' this ride ( if you want to post something up. Put me down as tentative...

Here's the ride Junkie is talking about, from Saturday (45km/800m vertical):

And if you add Cottage point, it becomes (53km/920m vertical):

Why not try both?? Eye-wink

Mind you, my mates and I got a lift back in the car from the beach!! Not that Mona Vale Rd is too difficult...

Akuna bay and west head is great. i think you'll like it. i ride a roadie too now and thinks its fantastic. having said that Manly Dam today was awesome!

Who loves that first big ride after all the festive drinking and eating? the easy hills are suddenly so so hard...

in other words - I'm not so fit at the I am definitely not cranking a fast pace on this ride (!)

Try chasing lunatics all over Rotorua for 7 days in your holidays... Eye-wink

Yeah, but no drama, a cruise would be nice. You might like to change the post duration to 2.5-3 hours then. We'd have to crank a little to do it in 2.
