On road behaviour

Please note note not to cross over continuous white road markings especially when returning from our Sunday ride for coffee at Frankies. For one it is illegal and secondly it is not a good PR look in front of the public in this busy location.

Please go up to and around the  Victoria Plamerston Street roundabout to park your bike on the footpath. Your cooperation will be appreciated.

2 March 2019 Ride

Firstly apologies for not posting ride notices for the last two weeks. I was away in Bargara Queensland to see turtles hatching at the nearby Mon Repos turtle sanctuary. Apart from this I attended the UCI Banderburg Track Carnival. Several overseas teams and riders mixed it with local and National track riders.  Hot and very windy there because of the nearby Cyclone Oma.

Well tomorrow is our first ride for autumn. The weather is still in its summer state with warm weather predicted. Darnum it is departing at 8am.

Please have your batteries charged and light on for the ride.
