[ There is now a
SydRide Mailing List and Web Page.
From: Cameron Simpson <email@example.com>
Organization: Computing Facility, CS&E, Uni Of NSW, Oz
Subject: solid arrangements for the SydRide to Wiseman's ...
Sorry folks, much of the organisation happened while our news service
was down. For those I didn't reach by mail, the SydRide is an expedition
to Wiseman's Ferry on Sunday Oct 9. Bring friends, bring pillions, etc.
- Cameron Simpson
Ok, here's the scoop for all those who want to come:
Feel free to bring unannounced friends.
- 9th October '94
- For those from the South or East or inner city:
- 9am at my place:
(85 Ingram Lane, Kensington.
Directions below since most street directories
seem not to show it, or only name the adjoining street.)
- For those from the West:
- 9am at the Jolly Frog in Windsor.
I don't know Windsor that well, and
I think David Watkin <D.Watkin@uws.EDU.AU> may be the only
person from that side of town, so contact him to see if
there're enough people to make it worth meeting there first.
- For those from the North and West:
- 10am at Storey Park, corner of Lodge Street and the Pacific
Hwy, Hornsby. Galston Road comes out 2 blocks south of the
park, so turn left and it'll be on your left.
Of course, if someone up that way wants to volunteer their
abode, all to the good!
- North from my place, over the bridge (via the Wall Of Death before
they remove the Quay overpass) down Epping Road, Delhi Road, Lady
Game Drive, Commenara Parkway, Pennant Hills Road, Storey Park @
Hornsby. A more direct route if we're running late.
North from Hornsby to along the Hwy, left via Peats Ridge and Central
Mangrove to Wiseman's Ferry, maybe to St Albans for lunch.
- Convoy to Hornsby, then everyone sets their own pace with
regrouping every so often (especially at turnoffs). Probably the
Peat's Ferry Bridge near Brooklyn, the turnoff at Calga (right for
Gosford, left for Peats Ridge and Wiseman's), the left turn at
Central Mangrove, then Spencer and then the Ferry.
My current idea of who's meeting where is:
Some of this is guesswork since I don't know where the SU people actually live.
- My place
- Mark Imisides,
Robert Mitchell <firstname.lastname@example.org> maybe,
Brett Squires and Julia Kitney,
Patrick Jordan, maybe Kym Fizzell?,
David Dawes <email@example.com.OZ.AU>
Andrew Winter <firstname.lastname@example.org.OZ.AU>
- David Watkin <D.Watkin@uws.EDU.AU> and his kids is that all?
- maybe Richard House,
maybe Pam Devon, maybe some of their friends,
David Bilbow <email@example.com>,

How to get to my place:
- Dowling Lane is an offshoot of Ingram Road, which hangs off Virginia
Street, Kensington. It may be best to park in the bulge at the end
of the Lane, as the lane itself is narrow and I don't know how my
neighbours may react to multitudes of bikes at 9am on a Sunday.
- From the city or such like: south down South Dowling Street to the
lights at Link Road (just before the Golf Course). Immediately past
the lights there's a sideroad to the left; turn left. It drops down
into Ingram Road and Dowling Lane hangs left off that as soon as the
road levels out.
- From the south (I suppose General Holmes Drive) it may be easiest to
head onto South Dowling Street, left at the Link Road lights,
do a U-turn and do a right back out of the lights and left into
the side road.
- From Kingsford, Anzac Parade (heading north, turn left at Todman Ave,
left (at the lights) into Lenthall Street, right into Virginia
Street, left into Ingram Road, right into Ingram Lane.
[...] look at yourself and, while you're at it, drag your eyes over some of
your mates who also ride bikes. They are doers, are they not, and what of the
rest of the population, that tragic ants nest of ever so busy bodies who
scurry from nest to work and back to the nest again at night, to recharge
themselves for another day of spirit-crushing toil? They are the watchers.
