We say goodbye to Cycling Sunday
We are now starting to plan for Bike Week 2016. Some big changes have been decided on.
We will be shifting Bike Week into late January/February, and our major ride event for the week will be Ride the Night. We have decided that it is time to rest our big Century Ride event, and also to let our Cycling Sunday all day event go. The Century Ride has been run for fifteen years now. It started in 2001 and has had different routes during that time. The first ride went from Salamanca to Pontville and back and had a gold coin entry fee. Cycling Sunday is relatively recent but has grown markedly in its several years to become a big day of events for riders of all ages and capacities.
Many of our members will have fond memories of taking part in the Century Ride, the Family Ride and the Relaxed Ride. Of making new friends and learning new skills.
Thank you to all of you who have been a part of our Cycling Sunday rides for the past 5 years. Click on this image to see a review of our Century Rides and Cycling Sundays!
We have a store of photos of the events at these links, which you are also welcome to browse.
And a big thankyou to all our amazing volunteers, without whom these great events would not have succeeded. We say a particular thankyou to:
- Our Rides Coordinators over this period: Ambrose Canning and Peter Thurling, who over the many hours required to prepare for, and run, these events showed incredible organisational skills and their passion for helping to get more people riding.
- Jeff Dunn, for leading the Kids/Families Rides
- Royal Hobart Hospital Research Foundation, our charity partners in Cycling Sunday.
