Come and try day

And it was a glorious day too, although the wind was a bit nippy to us confirmed Queenslanders.  I noticed the Velonauts didn't seem to fell the cold...

A few velomobiles headed north to Scarborough today, very pleasant ride. Managed to roll with 2 x Mangos, 1x DF velomobile, 1x Peregrine on Birk, 1x M5 high racer and 1x Performer High racer.

I won't be able to make the "come and try" on Sunday as I will be in Rockhampton.  Enjoy!

James, thanks for the posting the info on the upcoming rides here.  I am out of town on the 25th of June.  I may also be out of town on the 11th but that is not certain yet. 

David, Yes unfortunately the Peregrin on Birk is a "BUY BEFORE YOU TRY" machine; rather than the other way around.  If I can make it on the 11th I may take the fairing off because the bare bike is quite interesting in itself and quite easy to ride.

"come and try" gathering

I bags first go in Stix' Peregrin on Birk!

Just kidding Stix. I wouldn't even ask unless the sides were covered in kevlar.

It's been quiet here lately, but there is activity in the area.  Two low key events coming up, a recumbent group "come and try" gathering on 11th June, Nundah Criterium track 8am, and a group ride on the 25th June, 7am at the Nundah Criterium track to Redcliffe and return.

Amendment to the planned ride tomorrow:

The Boondall wetlands path has been closed by BCC, the ride will now be a shortened version with lap out to Nudgee Beach, followed by coffee/food at the DFO.

Apologies for the change.
