21 May 2016 Ride

This Saturday looks like it will be a better day to ride as compared to the very windy days we have been experiencing. 8am depart from Darnum.

Weather forecast – Partly cloudy. Winds northwest to northeasterly 15 to 25 km/h becoming light during the afternoon then becoming northwest to northeasterly 20 to 30 km/h during the evening. Overnight temperatures falling to between 3 and 7 with daytime temperatures reaching between 14 and 19.

Please note that the following Saturday is the last ride for the month of May. Brandy Creek Winery is under renovations and the cafe will not be operating for at least three months. Rather than just using Brandy Creek Winery’s carpark it has been suggested we start from a different venue where there are toilets and where we can have coffee after our ride.

As a trial, the ride for Saturday 28 May 2016 is to depart from Yarragon at our usual time –  8am. Park at the rear of the shops where there is abundant cap parking spaces.

The suggested ride course is to ride to Westbury along North Canal Road and return via Araluen Road. Estimated distance 45km

Bingo 2016

Bingo Night Friday 20 May 2016

Gita is organising a  Bingo night to raise funds for her students to support the building of a  library including Khmer books in Cambodia. If the Bingo night last year is any thing to go by this will also be a very interesting and entertaining night.

Several riders are already planning to be part of the evening. As with all fund raining events it needs to be supported by as many people. Be a good cycling citizen and help this very worthy cause.
