Due to some of our SBUG members being away riding in the Cootamundra Bike Festival last Sunday only three riders participated in the ride to the ruined lighthouse in the Booderee National Park. The group rode along Jervis Bay Road, Wreck Bay Road and Stony Creek Road to the ruined lighthouse and then along the cliff top track to Governor Head and Murray’s Beach. The weather was warm and sunny for a very enjoyable ride.
The SBUG Christmas Party will be held on Friday 28 November at the Cambewarra Lookout Cafe commencing at 6.30pm. Please contact Paul Taylor at WOLLEMIGROVE@BIGPOND.COM to confirm your booking before the 19 November. It should be a wonderful evening. Looking forward to seeing you there.
