Hi old people, Mondays ride starts at Dicky Beach Carpark and is a mystery ride, mainly because I will make it up as we go along. About 25k with a few hills but also a lot of flat paths nearer the ocean.
See you at 7 am.

Ride and swim at Currimundi Lake on New Years Day.
Yes a normal ride starting at 7am.....parking should be okay at the lake or surrounding side streets at that time of the morning.
Bring your togs, boards, canoes and stand up paddle boards for later in the morning.
Only one coffee shop is open......the smaller one where we can hire and share equipment if required.
For breakfast I suggest you bring your bowl and spoon....perhaps some fruit and cereal or maybe you can buy something. Bear in mind it will be quite busy!
What a lovely way to commence 2018.
Cheers Jillie

European Bike Tour 2018. Decision Time...

Hi Everyone. As you know a few of us have been investigating the possibility of a bike & boat club ride in Europe next year. From the input we have received it appeared that an 8 day tour along the Danube River was favoured (Passau to Budapest by Bike & Boat). Three companies were contacted, Tourradar, Utracks, & Hooked on Cycling. After looking at departure dates availability and everyones preferred dates, Only 3 departures are now available, only one of which would be suitable for a group booking...

29th July (6 cabins left)
5th & 12 August (3-4 cabins left)

NO CABINS HAVE BEEN PUT ON HOLD FOR US AT THIS STAGE. Please see the following for prices from Utracks...

'Based on your maximum possible group of 12, the price & booking information is as follows:

Danube Explorer to Budapest (DEB)
8 day self guided cycle
29 July ΓΆ€“ 5 August 2018
$1650 per person twin share ΓΆ€“ based on main deck, low season
Plus $260 per person high season supplement ΓΆ€“ applicable for this date
= $1910 each

There are currently 2 main deck cabins available.
We can also offer middle and upper deck, the supplements are:

Middle deck $280 per person ie total $2190 each
Upper deck $400 per person ie total $2310 each

The optional e bike supplement is $170.

Deposit due at the time of booking $803 per person.
The balance is due 70 days prior.'

Unless we can get firm bookings fairly quickly (2 other tour dates with 6 cabins have already been sold out in the last few days) for the 29th July tour, we will look at planning a club 2019 tour so everyone can have time to discuss and plan for it.

Please respond to myself or David Hall if you are definite for 2018.

Hi all

Thanks to all the organisers for a great Xmas get together last night at the Spit. Such a lovely evening. Tony and I brought home two cushions and a beach towel that were left where we were gathered last night so if you are the owner of either would you like to give me a call on 0407 184 677 or send me a message.

Cheers
Kathie

Good morning riders......such a pleasant get together last night. Thank you all for coming along and making it the success it was.
Ride for Monday 11th starts at Trader Dukes, Maroochydore at 7am
See you there. Diane is the ride leader...not sure of the coffee stop,but I can assure you it will be nice coffee. Cheers Jillie

Jillie R on 08-Dec-2017
Hi all,
Just a reminder that we are having a Xmas get together this week on Thurs 7th Dec.
We will meet at The Spit end of Parkyn Pde Mooloolaba, at 5.30pm.

We will hopefully commandeer the undercover picnic tables area, where we sometimes have our coffee break during our ride,
so BYO dinner or BBQ supplies, or there are several fish and chip outlets nearby, if you prefer.
It may be an idea to BYO chair in case we are short of seating.

We will again have a few games available for those of us who are feeling energetic or competitive.

Weather sounds more promising for Thurs, so fingers crossed.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Carol,

Carol H on 05-Dec-2017
Hi all,
I can hear thunder but will take a chance and be there at 7. We may have to do a short ride which is fine as we all know it's all about the coffee anyway.
See you there if you're game.

Easy and Leisurely Riders
About 15 people met on Thursday to discuss a possible Bike and Barge tour in Europe in 2018. Others have also shown interest. (However, once dates and prices are considered there will of course be many who will not proceed).
Tours in Holland, the Amalfi Coast, South of France and Croatia were all considered.
It was agreed we should consider a similar tour to what other Sunshine Coast people did a few years ago.
So
1. Who is interested in a Danube explorer to Budapest tour?
See https://www.tourradar.com/t/34409

2. If so, when are you NOT available in May and June 2018 and August, September and October 2018.
Once we see what the interest is, we can look at more details on dates, prices, etc .
Of course, if someone has other ideas or would like to organise the trip, please advise

David Hall

Hi all,
So sorry this is so late. I was intending to do our Ewan Maddock Dam adventure on Monday 4th Dec, but due to our recent wet patch and more rain predicted over the weekend, I think it may be too soggy in places to attempt it this time.
We will now meet at the new time of 7am!!!!!!!!
At the Ballinger Rd Sports Centre on Ballinger Rd, Buderim.
Coffee will probably be at Hamptons.
Hope the weather has settled by Monday as I'm sure you are all having withdrawal symptoms as well.
Look forward to seeing you all there.
PLEASE NOTE; STARTING TIME IS NOW 7am.
Thanks, bye.
Carol.
