Meet up details

  • Please try to be not to be late as we will leave @ 7.10am sharp 
  • We will ride at a steady pace to Flinders. Meet @ Flinders around 7:40.
  • The "off" for Amy's Ride will be at 8:00am
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 the Seacliff / Hallett Cove beach ride from there.

Man Down 
Unfortunately Geoff had a fall on the the final leg home Sunday. It was  slow speed so hopefully back on the bike soon. get better soon Geoff.

I know we promised that the BG Club Ride would always be the first Sunday of the Month, always a beach Ride. Well one out of two isn't bad. As this Sunday is Amy's Ride we will not have the No Excuses beach ride. Instead we will defer that No Excuses ride for November until Sunday the 20th  and use the Ride to support the St Clair Cup Criterium known as the “Corsa Dello Stivale”. As we know from our rain soaked trial lap the St Clair development has created a fantastic criterium circuit which AV Jenning has offered to host the Cycling SA Super Series – Stage 6.

The BG No Excuses Ride will be on Sunday November 20th we will ride Anzac Hwy, Outer Harbor and then return via Port Road for Coffee at the St Clair village.

Corsa Dello Stivale
The Cycling SA Super Series – Stage 6 – AVJennings St Clair Cup Criterium known as the “Corsa Dello Stivale” event will be on Sunday, 20 November 2016 at St Clair on a 1.05km boot shaped course around the central park and waterways on St Clair Avenue.

Racing starts at 9:00am through to approx. 1:30pm and will include:

  • Masters (9;00am start)
  • Elite men (9:55am start)
  • Elite women (11:05am start), and 
  • Juniors (TBC)

All the major SA teams will be there (including Sam Web’s USG-Bike Station Racing Team) and young Bastardi Lewis and Elliot Walker will probably be racing in the Juniors (if included in the program).

The event is sponsored by AVJennings and we will be there to present prizes to the winners. 

It is hoped that all the Bastardi Gruppetto can call in and enjoy some of the racing as part of the Sunday ride.
