SBUG Have a Great Weekend at Jamberoo!

Last weekend Shoalhaven Bicycle User Group had a weekend away at Jamberoo. Nine riders participated in the Saturday ride from Nowra to Kiama for lunch then on to Jamberoo where the group were joined by five other members for an evening meal and overnight stay at the historic Jamberoo Pub. Sunday morning more riders from Nowra and Kiama joined the group for a ride to Minnamurra Falls and back to Kiama for lunch. After lunch most of the group rode back to Nowra via Gerringong and Shoalhaven Heads. The weather was outstanding with clear skies and no wind. Thanks to Peter for organising and leading the ride and to Tom and Judi for driving the support vehicles.
