SUN RIDE - 10.11.13 - SOFIE'S RIDE

*** SUMMER RIDE TIMES COMMENCE - FROM NOW ON 7:30 STARTS***

A ride to recognise Alf and Chris becoming grandfathers this time last year.

One of the strengths of the BG is it’s diversity. We have grandfathers riding alongside Bowden Series riders. We have A grade, E grade and Weekend Warrior. Those who ride everyday and those who struggle to get out on the bike every so often. Joined by a common theme ... we love riding our bikes.

This week for Sofie’s (next year Sophie’s) Ride we celebrate that diversity. It would be great to see some old faces and some new ones. To those who have been thinking of coming out ... now is a good opportunity.

Meet Hindmarsh SQ @ 7:30

Usual BG Beach Ride. We will begin with a gentlemanly pace down Port Rd. Usual Sprint Points.

Coffee @ Evida. The proud Grandfathers have kindly offered to shout coffee and cake!!!

CHARITY RIDES + CADEL JERSEY

Big Congratulations to Steve Balmer, Dan Guzej, and Chris (not sure of your last name but goes on Strava as Dunny) for undertaking their charity ride throughout the Month of October. Unfortunately, I'm not going to be out this week, but it would be good if those going out this Sunday could throw in a fiver each at the cafe stop.

Whilst on charity rides, my likely future brother in law, Chris (different Chris), will be undertaking a 1000km charity ride with his Dad, this coming April - Supercycle which raises money for Cancer Patients from the QEH.  Should you want to do the ride or donate, check out the link.



To help with fundraising, Chris has received a signed and framed 2011 Cadel Evans BMC Jersey celebrating his win in the TdF. This is authentic (it was sent to us from Jason Bakker – Cadels manager) and not mass produced. Size is approx. 75cm x 95cm.

We have decided to offer the jersey through a silent auction being held at our quiz night. 100% of proceeds go to SuperCycle for The Hospital Research Foundations project of providing accommodation to country cancer patients receiving treatment at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

As not everyone can attend the quiz night, if you or any of your friends would like to bid on the jersey we will accept email bids before the night (insured interstate delivery is possible – at the cost of the purchaser).

The current bid and reserve price is $1,000, although some of Cadel’s jerseys can sell for over $3,000.

To bid or for more information please contact me on 0417 826 663 or cwilliams@statewide.com.au .


The silent auction finishes at the end of our quiz night on 15 November 2013.


Cheers
