We hope we haven't confused you with the picture - but it's a shot from the movie Poltergeist. The young lass is looking at the TV and singing 'They're baaa-ack!'.
And so it is with our Weekly gravel grind rides! We started these a couple of seasons ago, and now they're back!!
There's a change of day - Now we'll be heading out on FRIDAY MORNINGS bright and early, so anyone who needs to get to work can still join us!
There'll be a standing start time of 6am weather permitting, with the start/finish location varying according to where we want to ride.
We're starting THIS FRIDAY the 11th of May at 6am, and for the first week we'll venture into the forests towards Old Bar. As such, we're gonna meet at the town end of Martin Bridge, just near the traffic lights.
As it's a gravel grind, most bikes will be able to handle the work, but be warned there will be a little bit of climbing involved (not too much)!!, so riding something with some grip on the tyres would definitely be an advantage.
Here's the details - see you there!!!!
WHEN: Friday 11th May, roll out of the start point at 6AM SHARP!!!
MEET: Town end of the Martin Bridge, just near the traffic lights at the corner of Victoria and Commerce Sts, Taree
BRING: Bike suitable for gravel grinding (MTB, road bike with fatter 28-32c tyres, adventure bike, touring bike etc, helmet, gloves and glasses, water, you might need lights at the start of the ride, but we'll have some on our bikes if you don't have any.
DIFFICULTY: Intermdediate - approximately 30km over approx 1.5 hours.
