Sunday Ride is the Kat Killer Klassic




Kat Killer Klassic
We are not a bunch of racists. More pet lovers with a twisted streak.
Meet Hindmarsh Sq @ 8:00 am or the Tower Hotel Car park @ 8.30 am

KKK Lobethal loop - Norton's - Forest Range - Lenswood - Lobethal
Cudlee Creek - Gorge - Adelaide - Approx 76km

Short cut : From Lenswood - Fox Creek (Coldstore Rd) - Cudlee Creek - Gorge - ADL. 69km
Long Cut : (need more training?) Gorge - Corkscrew Rd - Montacute Rd - Adelaide

Cudlee Creek cafe for coffee.

The Kat Killer Klassic honors the anniversary of one cats tragic death and Dave C 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 ordeal but passed later that night.

As always 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.

As always we will pause briefly at the crash site so that those who were there can recount the events of that fateful day.

BG Lunch
I was going to try and organise a BG Lunch for this ride. It hasnt happened again however we can see who is keen for up for second breakfast once we hit town.
