The second September social ride left from the Oxygen Cafe at 7.30 am on 23 September for a 57km spin via Ramsey and Cambooya.
Eight riders started, and all eight completed, returning to the Oxygen by midday.
The ride was conducted at a respectable pace in beautiful weather but with some strong headwinds in the latter part of the ride.
This ride covers some very picturesque countryside.
One red car full of mouthy 'youf' managed to profer loud 'advice' to us as we left town down Ruthven Street, their number plate was noted and the Dept of Transport violation form is being lodged.
Some individual BUG members have adopted a zero-tolerance attitude towards abuse, hurled bottles and poorer than usual driving and intend to report this unpleasant habit more frequently than has been the practice in the past.
We will try to interest the Toowoomba Police in appointing a BUG liason officer so we can work with them in making our roads safer, and more pleasant, for everyone.
Will keep readers posted on the progress of that initiative.
The ride was a great success and a good time was had by all.
Next ride, third Sunday of October.
