I have a mate who would like to join us but has a commitment with his daughter until 10am or so - if we could push the start back to 10:30, he and I could drive over in time to ride, otherwise we might end up starting a ways behind the 'pack'

Done!

No worries, I am sure 30 minutes is not going to upset anyone at this stage!

I am soooooooooooo looking forward to finally riding this. What is the intended route?. I would like to leave ahead of the group again, to ensure I am not an anchor on this journey.

As per the name of the track... the "Train" will start off at the bottom of codgers and work its way up to the Coppermine Saddle, Stopping along the way at the following "Stations" for people to get off if they want!
Station 1 "The Table"
Station 2 "Four Corners"
Station 3 "Third House"
Station 4 "Forth House (remains)"
Station 5 "Windy Point"
Station 6 "Coppermine Saddle"

As the "Track" down Boulder Gully is closed the train will then make a return trip the way it came.

If the "Caboose" decides to go ahead of the "Engine" I can't see that as a problem, though being a longer ride my pace will be pretty laid back if you want to cruise.

Along with those listed here, we should have at least two more, my friend Jason and Paul J., who was making rumblings about bringing his single-speed along..
