St. Ives, Akuna Bay, Illawong Bay, Duffy's Forest and "home James and don't spare the horses" - 49.4km - 7 riders

A tad chilly early, but nothing like earlier in the week,  Fortunately, the forecast 25 max arrived around 1pm whilst driving home.  Alan Wilkie and Brian Bury both opine that no more cold weather this year.

Our 4cast ride was abbreviated 'cause of fire hazard burning on the West Head leg, so we retraced via Duffy's Forest.  No one seemed overtly upset.  We crossed paths with  Michael aka GoodMorningVietnam on our return leg.

The Patonga Ferry Boat ride is in a fortnight to dovetail in with the 10:10am departure from Palm Beach.  Arriving at Pristine Patonga Village at 10:40am where we ride our customary Tour de Patonga that takes all of 5 mins before scaling that nasty-ish climb twds Pearl Beach, Umina, Ettalong and Woy Woy.
