Go G.I.R.L News

Saturday’s Beginner ride on the 24/02/2016 had 14 riders take off from Ewan Maddock car park and within minutes one rider was sure that they had seen a platypus! We continued riding around the dam taking in the sights and stopping for the odd photo. Most ladies were well and trully ready for a coffee and a snack once we arrived at Buck’s Bakery in Landsborugh. After refreshments, a highlight was definitely going through Dalarcha N.P. and riding through the old tunnel to Kenny’s at Mooloolah. It was at this point, some of the ladies had to dig deep. The SAG wagon was called for one lady who made a promised to herself to get on her bike more often . It was the first time her legs had peddled in a very long time. So she did exceptionally well getting that far. With only a few kilometres to go, one bike sadly didn’t make it. Our support mechanic, Paul Hume tried to fix it but surprisingly the lady was quite adamant to leave it in that twisted state as she was sure when her husband saw it, he would buy her a new one! After all riders were safely back, connections were made and interest was high in Go G.I.R.L. Many joining our face book group, eagerly awaiting news on where our next adventure will be!

Rookie Ride update
Ditch the training wheels!

Had a good ride on Saturday with Dave and Jason showing up to have another crack at Parklands and Tim coming to check it out for the first time. Ben and I took them through Terry’s novice track and the Ho Chi ho loop and we spoke about gear choice, braking, body position, picking lines and tried a few log rollovers.

No dedicated rookie ride on this weekend but you are welcome to come along to the Social ride at Ewan Maddock dam (Glenview) on Sunday. Check the calendar for the details.
