Sunday Ride Program 2018-2019

Here is the 2018/19 Ride guide.  I would like to thank Michael Richardson and Brian Virgo for helping plan this year. Last year worked well and we avoided any major clangers but as usual a few more sets of eyes reviewing the new guide wont go astray. If you notice anything yell.  

Bastardi Gruppetto/Grassi 10 Year Anniversary

  • 2018 is the BG's 10th Anniversary as a riding group. The celebration ride is set for Sunday the 15th July 2018 and will reprise the original route ridden by the BG daddy's. Anzac Highway turning at Bower road. We will be doing a bit more about this closer to the day.

The Basics
  • The First Sunday of the month is the no excuses Beach Ride. Outer Harbor via Port road 
  • A couple of Roads Less traveled rides have been included to add some variety
  • Winter Rides are May 20th through to August the 19th. They are all tagged as beach rides but we will meet in the city and choose from the close hill loops when weather permits
  • Mothers day is a no-ride day and the BG end of season break 
  • 7:30am starts will start on the Fathers day weekend and precede Daylight savings itself starting 
  • The TDU Reconnaissance ride is scheduled for  November the 25th  to avoid the silly season.
  • The Club lunch will be in December and is set down as a repeat of this year. We will however examine a Beach option on the same pattern as suggested around the 3rd or 4th beer this year.
Xmas and New Years
This year Christmas eve and New Years eve fall on Mondays. We recognize that this is a family time of year so the Sunday's preceding have been scheduled as beach rides. We will seek consensus as to what to do nearer the day. 

Whats New/Different/Noice :
  • The southern hills loop suggested (but never riden) by Dan becomes a regular ride. The "Guzej Special Stage (Mylor via Cherry Gardens with Steep Hills, Strade Bianche and a really nice Valley road)"
  • We will try a couple of alternate beach rides that add length to the southerly loops
  • We will continue to experiment with a few split bunch rides. A Fast group will head off on a bigger loop with the Slow group doing one of the standard loops with both Groups together for the first part of the ride 
  • A suggestion has been made to have a crack at a winery trip instead of a pub crawl. The idea is we pick a wine region and go tasting. This will require both sag and purchase transportation wagons but not the obscene deposit the pub bikes require.
  • With the end of the Ride like Crazy we have left that Sunday slot flexible to see what might occur on that day.
