Thursday Ride 16th Jan Mundaring Dome

Postby brian/5 » Tue Jan 14, 2020 3:00 pm

Leaving Shell Ascot 7:15am. Mundaring Dome approx 8:30am departure.
The forecast is for mid 30's with 20% change of rain, with it being warmer inland.
So if forecast is correct suggest a shorter ride. DDD on the day.

Meeting for today’s ride was Brian, Peter, Wes & Eddy.
Ross join us for morning coffee and returned back for lunch.

The route proposed by Brian was the long way round. Taking about 170km to get to Cafe Mojo from Mundaring Dome.
We could have walked there as it was only 200m.

Rather than his usual role of leading the ride Peter changed to being the TEC. Thanks Peter.
During the ride it was a warm but comfortable, with the temperature being in the low 30's.
However on the way home after lunch it was uncomfortably hot at times up to 38 degrees.

Wes and Eddy wanted full details of the ride. Eddy so he could find roads not previously travelled
and Wes in case he wanted to repeat the ride. So here it is.

Thanks Brian for navigating us on such an interesting ride. Lots of roads, streets, avenues etc that were new to me, great effort that now sets the bar higher to achieve a new route. Thanks to Wes and Eddy for the company on the ride and Ross to catch up before and after his Fire Brigade duties. Great day!
