Southbank to Southport bike ride October 12

Join other Toowoomba cyclists on the annual Brisbane, Southbank to Southport, bike ride.

This is an ever expanding annual event to raise money for heart and diabetes research, as well as publicising the benefits of cycling.

This is not a race, so you can go at your own pace.

The organisers provide 'smoko' and lunch, as well as roadside marshalls all along the route, support vehicles for those who may fall-by-the-wayside, and a very good atmosphere.

TBUG social riders could easily manage this event, and quite a few did last year.

See the Bicycle Queensland website for all details and application details:

National Ride To Work Day October 15

Toowoomba BUG joins R2W Day 2008

Toowoomba BUG has secured public liability cover from Bicycle Queensland in order to meet Toowoomba Regional Council insistence on at least $10 million public liability coverage, just to be able to meet at the Art Gallery Garden.

A sign of the times, no doubt.

BUG supporters will have been sent an email with the details, which will be posted on this blog site else where, also.

There is still time to register to be in the running for a number of prizes.

If you belong to a workplace, like Toowoomba DPI or USQ, who are organising a workplace event, then use their 'team number' to register, but if your workplace has not yet entered a team, you can do either:

1) See your employer and discuss the workplace registering, and use that team number

2) Register as an individual and come along to the TBUG breakfast.
