Northside loop ride - interested?

Started by JamesD. Last reply by JamesD Jul 4. 48 Replies

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

Latest news. The ride meeting place is Kurilpa Park (beside GOMA). Meeting time is 11.00am, for a 12.00 noon departure. It returns to the park for a "celebration". Food stalls, etc. Plenty of time to wander and look at bikes, etc. I'm really looking forward to being a Pod of recumbents meeting up at QUT end of Goodwill at 10.30am, riding in a group along South Bank and arriving en masse. Might raise the awareness of recumbents in Brisbane somewhat.

I will go to the CBD ride on the 13th too. Sounds like the Redcliffe ride might not be happening that day then? I'll be riding in from Sandgate at about 10 AM if anyone would like to join me...

At least for velomobiles, you could have a clutch of eggmobiles? :-)

A recline of recumbents is very good. I will vote for it if it comes to that, but there must be more...
A pod of recumbents?.
Feetfirst, a ped...? No...
Comment by Peter Smith on Tuesday

I prefer to refer to a group of bents as a "recline".

Look Wilfred, there goes a recline of recumbents!

Comment by David on Monday

Litter is good. Did someone suggest bevy of 'bents?

Comment by Mary Martin on Monday

Maybe a Litter of recumbents because they do seem to be breeding now :-)

Comment by Mary Martin on Monday

I do hope someone has a go pro to bring along and capture the flock/fight/bevy/hover/ heap whatever of recumbents on the mass ride with our mugs on it for posteritory. I realise we will be the buzz of the press that day as the strangest most interesting and thankfully un uniformed lycra group there.

Maybe that day the collective name will be a circus of recumbents. I have missplaced the list of collective nouns for a ride of recumbents gathered earlier. 

More ideas ? :-)

Comment by Geoff Tewierik on Sunday

I won't be at the mass ride, I'll be out west riding in the dust of others as part of the Epic MTB race.  Doing the 50km Pursuit as a Duo this time around.

Doubtful Jeff, I will have to come on the greenspeed :P
