Dinner at The Quarry

A fall, a detour and a fun lunch meeting

Jim headed to the hospital to collect Robyn and leave for Pt Macquarie for home and sign in to hospital

Goran left with the fast group to ride to Wyangala Dam and further

Gaylene, Simone, Geoff and I started the Wyangala Dam moderate (usual) loop. As we hit the 'pick a plank' bridge out of town it came up as a surprise for Simone (she was in a larger group) and she got her tyre caught in a gap between the planks and went over and hurt her elbow on a big bolt in the bridge. We decided to return to the house and dropped her there then rode on to do the Greenthorpe loop

David rode with us for about 30 km then returned to Cowra to catch bus to Sydney as he was concerned about his son. Geoff accompanied him back and Gaylene and I completed the loop. We caught the tail end of the group that left earlier then caught up with the main group in a cafe in Greenthorpe, where we had lunch.

We finished the last 35km as quickly as possible making good use of the great descent on the way back to Cowra

Lunch : tomato soup and a half sandwich I'd made earlier

Dinner : at The Quarry restaurant

Lamb shanks and truffle oil mash

Pavlova with lemon curd and strawberries

Received the news that Robyn will be operated on tomorrow at Pt Macquarie hospital which also found she had a fractured pelvis. No wonder she couldn't stand on one leg ! Cowra hospital hadn't found that!!

Back in Sydney David also had good news about his son.

What a day!

Distance ridden 107km.

Weather: Perfect
