Ride Update 25 June

On Saturday and Sunday 27 and 28 June SBUG have organised a weekend away riding to Jamberoo and staying overnight at the Jamberoo Pub. Anyone who would like to attend and has not yet made arrangements, please call Peter Hewlett on 02 4446 0119.
The program is as follows:
The ride will start at the Nowra Visitors Centre, Pleasant Way, Nowra, leaving promptly at 8:30am and riding to Gerringong railway station, via Bolong Road, Back Forest Road, Agars Lane, Toolijooa Road and the highway to Gerringong. We plan to catch the 11:39am train to Kiama to avoid riding around the Kiama bends. After arriving in Kiama we will have coffee/lunch before riding to the Jamberoo via the Kiama cycle path to Dunmore, Swamp Road and on to Jamberoo Pub where we will have dinner and stay overnight.
We will have a scenic ride to Minnamurra Falls before returning to Kiama, via Jamberoo Road, for lunch. After lunch riders can either catch the train or ride back to Nowra via the Gerroa cycle path, Crooked River Road and Beach Road to Berry for a rest/coffee break. To finish off a great weekend of riding the final leg of the journey to Nowra will be via Back Forest Road and Bolong Road.

NOTE: Some members who are not going to Jamberoo on Saturday will be joining the group for the Sunday rides. Anyone interested in riding Sunday please call Paul Taylor on 0402 413 482. He will be catching the 7:30am train from Bomaderry to Kiama, arriving 7:57am, then riding to Jamberoo to meet the others at 9:30am for the ride to Minnamurra Falls and back to Kiama. Contact: Paul 0402 413 482

There will be a support vehicle which will transport overnight gear to and from the Jamberoo Pub.
Over night gear will need to be taken on Friday afternoon to either Tom McDonald’s Unit 2/40 Lyndhurst Drive Bomaderry or
Peter Hewlett’s home 58 Main Rd Main Rd Cambewarra.

Original Message to SBUG Members

We are organising a weekend ride to Jamberoo and district in June. On Saturday and Sunday 27 and 28 June we are planning to ride to Jamberoo and then explore the wonderful countryside around town, staying overnight at the Jamberoo Pub.

The ride will start in Nowra, riding to Gerringong Railway Station where we will catch the 11:39am train to Kiama. We do this to avoid riding around the Kiama bends. After arriving in Kiama we will have coffee/lunch. The group will then ride to the Jamberoo Pub where we will have the evening meal and stay overnight.

Next day, Sunday, we will take the scenic ride to Minnamurra Falls and then returning to Kiama to catch the train to Bomaderry or riding back to Nowra from Gerringong. A safety vehicle will accompany the riders and you will be able to leave any additional luggage in this vehicle.
