Northside loop ride - interested?

I’m thinking of doing a longer ride one day in June, probably mid june.  By longer, for me that would mean around 75km, more than enough for this duck.  Initial thoughts are a loop where people can…Continue

An enjoyable trike adventure you may not have seen. Sam appears to have taken spelling lessons off me :-) .

Yep - your right MIB.  The organiser (who is a fellow work colleage) says"

"Time is a bit of an issue as we only have the street circuit from 4pm to 9pm.  We could probably get a 2 or 3 lap demo race in?  Remember it would have to be like the penny farthing races we have had at other cycling events, staged and not “real” racing.  Since the pennies and Bents/velos are not UCI approved and if you don’t have CA racing licenses you would not be covered by insurance.
It’s looking to be a fairground atmosphere with stalls and displays set up to attract regular families, it’s not just a racing event.
I think you would be inundated by people wanting to chat about these strange vehicles :-)"

Hi Shaun Sounds interesting. I think they may be amenable to a couple of demo laps, otherwise all the bent riders will need race licences.

Also, I think the club is Wynnum Redlands Cycling Club.

I've had a request from the president of the West Redlands Cycling Club. They are organising a cycling event on the 15th of August in conjunction with the Redlands Council.

The main highlight of the event will be a street crit event but they are also looking for groups to display bicycles and wanted to know the recumbent group from BC would be interested in displaying their rides under a Marquee?

I was thinking maybe pushing back and saying yes if we can get a street crit display style race seperate just for recumbents?

Hey Matt, nice to think a copper is taking it on board.
I had a good cop ring me about that black subi going down the inside in anger the other morning. Turns out the number plate has been out of circ for a couple years.

Good news after "an incident" last week. Police contacted me today to follow up injuries and damage- both very minor - and said planned to interview the driver.

That was not I sir. I have a cobweb to prove it!

Not me either, could be Randall? High racer recumbent is a rare sighting!

Comment by David on May 10, 2015 at 8:21pm

Whilst we are talking about who saw who, does anyone know the fellow with a red JC70 Performer trike who rides through Wavell Heights frequently?

I have seen him here (map link) quite a few times now, but I am always in a car taking my daughter to sports, so at least on Monday or Wednesday afternoons at about 4.10 pm - 4.15 pm.
