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.

Reminder for everyone who isn't in the facebook group - Ride is this Sunday, Nundah Crit Track => Woody Point, starting at 7am :-)

Comment by Stix on March 17, 2017 at 10:58pm

James.  Thanks for letting us non-facebook ludites know.  Very good chance I will be there.

Comment by JamesD on March 16, 2017 at 9:10pm

The next Bent Riders group ride is set for Sunday 2nd April, meet at the Nundah criterium track 7am for ride to Woody Point for breakfast.

It might be an opportune time to let everyone know that there is a bit of recumbent activity on facebook at Brisbane Recumbent Riders...just in case it slipped below the radar!
