Well done on the old hospital tag Pete. Very quick indeed and no formal clues needed.
New tag looks like a challenge.

Do any of you do the Tuesday's things with SCSC? I've never ridden with the group but considering coming along.
I was really lost with yours. I was checking out all the disused bowling clubs and Gladesville Hospital. I felt like I knew the architecture but I just couldn't find it. Im on the last day of holidays and it was a great excuse for a ride.
I ride with a group called "Sydney,We Ride "COZ WE CAN" Its a loose group of road bikes and scooters and we love to go touring on any fine Sunday. Its a great group if you want to get out and do 200/300ks. Youre welcome to tag along. Check Scooter Community forums for details.

Re the safety of the last challenge.
Its a part of the 5 bridges run that Linz reminded me of. It goes Anzac Bridge, Harbour Bridge Up the Gore Hill Freeway then left at Centennial Rd from Epping Rd (just past Lane Cove) Across Fig Tree Bridge, then Gladesville Bridge & Ironcove Bridge and back to start. Do the run and check out the location and report back if its too dangerous.
If it is then I have a more straight forward Pic.

Pete,
No dramas with the tag. I was thinking of peak hour and getting out with camera..

I'll put the 5 bridges run on motowhere.com

Remo,
Ive been down to the SCSC on a tues nite..the monthly run is the go if you want to do some Ks..otherwise tues is just from Moretons thru the express way and up Harris st(?) and thru Newtown to Corellis for an after dinner coffee or 3.....I saw fluffys scoot there on the monthly run from Correllis..I was the one who turned up lateish and tried to talk to people thru my full face helmet!!

I've become a bit of a regular at the SCSC- they're a nice enough bunch of freaks and wierdos, so of course i fit right in! Tuesdays are really a social thing, though it is quite fun riding around the Rocks and up George st in a group- for those that like the attention! The sunday runs are only monthly, so if i get the urge in between i might have to check out 'cause we can...

Its riot around the corner from the under belly

Also while on the way to get Pete's 'Dare' shot, I passed a guy on a beige GT(with the obligatory black with white strip Nolan helmet on) going the other way. Next thing I know He's buzzed past me and cut across 3 lanes of traffic and pulled up in a back alley way.

Wasn't any of you lot was it??

I live close by to this thing, and it took me a while to remember where I had seen it. Hopefully my post is not too hard

The subtlety of my use of Gaussian Blur, having spent a good portion of my life retouching images for Ralph magazine - blurring out the letters, was a little easier than removing knicker elastic marks from glamour models' bottoms. I reckon you can read it, if you know what is says beforehand. Maybe not if you don't.

What a difference a week and a half makes. Found it in a park off Unwins Bridge Rd Sydenham, right under the flight path. The only problm was 10 workmen putting down new bitumen so this was as close as I could get.
