Last Sunday 8 riders enjoyed an easy ride from Huskisson to Vincentia return, for ‘BIKE WEEK 2014’. Due to another function using the shared path along Collingwood Beach the riders rode along the main road and some back streets to the Vincentia ‘Bayside Bakery’ for coffee before returning to Huskisson. The weather was calm and mild, excellent conditions for riding.

SBUG is seeking ‘expressions of interest’ from members who are considering becoming Ride Leaders. In the months ahead, a training course will be organised for those wishing to lead SBUG rides. If you would like more information about the role of ride leaders and the training course you can contact Peter Hewlett on phone (02) 4446 0119.
