If you want to ride straight there, meet at trees behind the goal posts on the oval, If all else fails look out for BG jerseys.

BG Beach Ride Those not doing Amy's Ride but looking for a Sunday roll to the beach meet @ Hindmarsh 7:00am (yes its early, but you will be home early) and ride down to Flinders with the group and do a beach ride from there.

Return Trip From Amy's Ride 

We will have a trailer available, which we estimate will take 6-7 bikes. They will have one spare seat in the car. Bikes and car space available on a first come/first served basis and we will need to ride back from Serafino to Seaford Shopping Centre (which should help people get their Strava 130k in a single ride). I should also have a spare bike rack and seat available. I will be able to confirm by Friday.

Sundays Ride - Daylight Savings

Sundays Ride is beach ride Number 2 - Hallett Cove 

Meeting time is 8:00 am in the City 

The reason its in Large Font Bold is that Sunday is also the start of daylight savings, increasing distance and midweek rides. 

As per long established Bastardi tradition we don't shift to summer riding time until the Sunday a week after daylight savings starts. This means you only miss 60 minutes sleep on Sunday not 90 minutes. That gives us the right to be Bastardi  's the rest of the year. 

Kudos to those who braved the  70 kph winds to ride last Sunday. 


Where is that damm Road Runner!

Seriously this guy is training to attempt the HPV prone 1 hour record of 91 km. This is the machine sans fairing.
