The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Duration: 
2 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
I'll be there, no matter what the weather.
Ride Database Entry: 
Rydal
Meeting Point: 

From the highway come into Rydal and take a sharp left after crossing the railway. Follow the dirt road up past the houses. *Please* Be mindful of the locals, they bought places here to get away from the rat race so take it slow and keep noise to a minimum.
At the top of the hill take the left fork and follow the road past the cemetery.

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.
Details:

With thanks to Stella Maris Mining Services and Centennial Coal we will be continuing the weekly Tuesday night races on the new trail at Rydal.

Back to $5 entry fee this week
$15 for a day license

Please remember the dirt road leading to the cemetery is a residential street and we don't want to up set the locals so go slow and keep noise down... Actually considering the dust last week it might be best to go in via the showground so take the left before the pub and head around the top of the showground and follow the rd around to the left to just before the cemetery then duck back down to the Bicentennial trail and thus the car park

The plan will be to reverse the loop every other race.

Also rather than standing around gas bagging, after the last rider comes in let head to the pub for a beer while we yak.

If you plan to eat at the pub its best to give them a call to let them know so they can organise a cook and stuff (02) 6355 6208

Also, slightly later race start of 6.30 to allow the bathurst crew a little extra time to get here

Lights will be required for anyone doing more than 1 lap.
You can pick up a basic 250-300 lumin set for a bit over $100 these days or you could try your luck at one of the cheap generic sets coming out of china. If you want something good you can't go past the K-lites. Kerry is a great supporter of our club and his lights are simply have more lumins (and more importantly lux) per weight and $$$ than any other light in the world. You can buy direct off him or ask your bike shop to get them in.

Phil from the Alex is going to be doing a sausage sizzle for us after the race. A couple of buck will get you a sausage sanga and a bit of coldslaw or something.

The more we support the local community the better.

As it's getting dark fairly quickly its recommended that everyone has a light.
