Progressive Tuning Day

Postby Bozo » Sun Feb 28, 2021 5:03 pm

In the dim past people would amuse themselves by having progressive dinners where you ate a course at each person's house and moved on. Today the Sunday ride was like a progressive tuning day where a mechanical issue was tackled at one location before moving on to the next. A loose mirror was removed at one stop and replaced at the next, a loose switch block was sorted at one stop and a grub screw retaining the left grip was sorted at the stop after that.

17 riders and a pillion started on the ride to Dwellingup, a largish group. The increasing numbers of cyclists threatened to have us enmeshed in another major event but fortunately they petered out by the time we had cleared Canning Dam. We lost new Sunday ride participant, Andrew and his daughter at Yule Du Service Station at the top of Armadale Hill but Uno Ian, Nannup Nick, Sophie, Just John, AAA Anthony, Kim, Russell, DFS, Drew, JC, Rainer, JonO, Mark, Firey Ross, Peter Bee and Bozo found conversation at the Byford stop challenging due to the "loud piped Harley's" that preceded us up Nettleton Road.

A pleasant cool run up to Serpentine Dam before a run down the scarp and on to North Dandalup.

Brilliant bike riding weather and a well behaved group. Thanks to the corner markers, particularly Firey Ross and DFS, and to Peter Bee for managing the extended group.

Great weather for a large group to hit the hills. Well lead thanks Bozo and nice to see the 1200C out for a run. Even though we had such a large group at the busy Blue Wren at Dwellingup we were all comfortably seated with quick service. Thanks also to all the corner markers.
