Flash green T shirt for cyclists

Have a look at this all cotton T shirt for cyclists from New Internationalist magazine:

"What better combination - a fair trade cotton t-shirt that doesn't cost the earth, with a snappy challenge to 4-wheeled road users. On yer bike!"

11 November social ride

The Sunday ride was joined by twelve riders, including the tandem and a recumbent trike-Greenspeed.

Good weather saw us out along Ruthven Street in a pleasant temperature. The wind was quite strong at times, the flies were very friendly, the barking dogs very loud and surprising and the traffic was scant.

Plenty of stops to ensure no-rider-was-left-behind worked well.

Another good ride with 36 kms covered before returning to coffee and cakes at the Oxygen Cafe.

One incident marred the day with a car driver being reported to Toowoomba Police by one of the riders. Always a good idea to keep a pen and paper handy for writing down number plates.

Later in the day, some riders re-appeared to provide wheeled back-up at the Walk Against Global Warming, along with a few who didn't ride in the morning.

Stop press: December BUG ride dates are December 2 and 16- routes to be advised later.

November BUG Social Ride

The November social ride date has been altered this month.

Instead of the third Sunday we are going on 11 November 2007, the second Sunday.

The last ride attracted 17 people. This time we will regroup more often to make sure the tail-end riders are not left behind.

So, this Sunday, 11 November, meet you at the Oxygen Cafe at 7.00 am (also a change from our winter time 7.30 am) for a 36 km ride via: Top Camp, Hodgson Vale, Vale View, Drayton- return to the Oxygen.

Ask a friend to come along.

See you there.
