Bicycle Queensland manager, Mr. Ben Wilson, and BQs Cycle Queensland organiser visited Toowoomba on Tuesday 23 June, holding an information night at the Metro Café.
The meeting was well attended, with many TBUG faces present.
Adventurers were told all about how the event ran, what to expect, what to bring and not to panic about racing ahead each day.
BQ need both riders and volunteers for this event to realise its full potential. Riders can join for less than the full nine days if time-off-work is a problem. Volunteers can work full time for the whole event, or sign up for fewer days also.
It seems that two state politicians will be making the ride, but ‘no names’ were tabled. There is work to be done locally by TBUG, who will send an invitation to each TRC councillor and both the MLAs and our MHR for Groom to join the ride, at least for one stage.
The journey starts at the TAFE College before winding its way to Goombungee for the first nights rest and recreation.
