A few NSWR members are riding South on Sunday. Rudy and I are riding with them as far as Albion Park and we are visiting the Wings Over Illawarra 2011 Airshow. I can't say that it will be as good as the 2010 Air Show in Newcastle, but it looks promising.

Date: Sunday 27th February.
Meeting point: Heathcote McDonalds
Meeting Time: 9:00
Departure time: 9:30

Route: RNP at Waterfall, Seacliff bridge, Bulli Pass, then freeway down to Albion Park.

Flying Displays

Aircraft will be arriving as from early morning on the WOI day, and many aircraft will be parked and open for public inspection across the whole day. The Air Show program commences at 1100 hrs.

As dictated by weather, it may be wise to pack a pair of runners and shorts for comfort.

Not for H and I either.
Unfortunately H was cut off by a bad driver who gave her about a car lengths space of notice.
She did avoid the driver (I have no idea how as I was following her and know I couldn't have managed it) but she did put the bike down. No breaks and only some road rash. Mending well but the bike is in for repair.
At any rate no group rides till she is back on her bike - which she is keen to do.

Very sorry to hear that Verna, but all things considered, sounds like she was very lucky.

Saw a near smash myself today on the way to the gym. Young girl on a Scooter wearing nothing more than a t shirt, skirt and runners. She was almost taken out by a car changing lanes. Do they think they are invincible to injury because they are on a scooter. Go figure.

Very very lucky. Good protective gear helped a great deal although she is re-thinking the wisdom of a 3/4 faced helmet.
Also I am so with you on the scooter thing. Just want to shake these people till they see sense.

Verna sorry to hear about H's mishap. I hope she is feeling better and gets back up soon. I agree regarding scooter riders. I can guarantee they would only have to fall off once before considering safer gear.

cheers

Not true. I am going way out west where the rain don't fall.
Hope you have a good and safe trip.
