Sunday is Mothers - No Official BG Ride set for this weekend

Sunday is Mothers Day - No official Ride this weekend

When planning this years Ride Calendar we have bowed to the inevitable and accepted that on Mothers day everyone has somewhere to be and something to do. Hence we have taken the opportunity for a end of season break and scheduled NO RIDE for this Sunday Mothers day. 

We have learned that no matter how short you make the ride anyone who braves the wrath and shows up usually needs to cut it short.

If you are up for a Pedal in the morning meet at the normal time in the City and decide a suitable route among those able to attend. 

Enjoy Mothers Day



PS: The following Sunday is the start of the winter riding schedule. I will post details next week as this year it will include our 10 year anniversary ride.

Sunday Ride - Kat Killer Klassic

Kat Killer Klassic

Sunday 8th of April
Meet Hindmarsh Square @ 8:00 am or the Tower Hotel Car park @ 8.30 am

The Kat Killer Klassic Lobethal loop (78km from the city): 

Norton's - Ashton, Basket Range, Forest Range, Lenswood - Lobethal, Cudlee Creek

Coffee at Cudlee Creek cafe

Then Home via Gorge - Adelaide or for the brave Corkscrew Rd - Montacute Rd - Adelaide

Short cut : From Lenswood - Fox Creek (Coldstore Rd) - Cudlee Creek - Gorge - ADL. 69km

The Kat Killer Klassic honors the anniversary of an unfortunate mouse, one cats tragic death and Dave’s spectacular fall. For those not in the know, early 2009 David C, an original BG and mad cyclist took a bad fall when his paths crossed with a suicidal kitty that resulted in the cat ending up in Dave’s front wheel and subsequently jamming into his fork effectively stopping his front wheel ‘dead’ and ejecting him at speed into the bitumen. The cat survived the crash but passed away later that night.

Its slightly earlier this year in the hope we might snag a nice day.

The BG can’t thank the owner of the cat enough for her assistance with an unconscious David and we respectfully hope the cats death was not to traumatic – R.I.P.P.
