Welcome back everyone! It’s getting a little late to be saying Happy New Year, but on behalf of the club let me extend those wishes to you.
It’s been a rather disastrous summer all around Australia since the last post and club ride; we hope everyone is coping as best they can. Don’t be afraid to reach out to friends and family – Brompton family included – if you need help coping. Even if that help is just a sympathetic ear from the other side of the country, or half way around the world.
Onto January’s ride now… After a full weekend of cricket, carousing and too eating much barbecued lamb (at least, that’s what it’s rumoured you’re going to be doing), our Australia Day Public Holiday (day in lieu) ride will be a gentle affair to kick start recovery mode.
Pre-ride Breakfast – 8:00-9:30am
Arbory Bar & Eatery https://arbory.com.au/menu/
Riverside of Finders Street Station
Please message/email me if you plan to come as I’d like to make a reservation: email@example.com
Departing from Abory at around 9:30am we shall make our way to Port Melbourne, and then head down to Brighton sticking to the usual share paths. On our return we may stop for a cold drink, ice cream or lunch. The ride will be around 35km and enjoyed over 3-4hrs (including stops).
This route is safe and reasonably flat, so if you’re a new rider this is a good ride for you to join. Like almost every ride we do, this is a social “no drop” ride – you won’t be left behind.
- Brompton (don’t forget to check your tyre pressure before-hand)
- Sunglasses, suncream
- MYKI (just in case)
