Coffs Challenge and Dungog Pedalfest
Coffs is a great ride which is held on 3 August
Dungog Pedalfest will be held 5th-7th September. This is a fun weekend with several ride options, camping is available at a very reasonable price. The website has had some problems it will give basic info but to register you will need to go to www.rescuehelicopter.com.au/events this link has info http://www.pedalfest.org.au/IntroFrame.htm
Several members have already registered for this event. We will be camping at the showground which is very reasonable and close to the start of the events. The atmosphere there is fantastic and as the night goes on the tales get taller and noisier. Anyone thinking about camping I would suggest arriving Friday arvo to secure a good spot. Email for any info you may require around the events, camping, accommodation or anything else.
Our route maps are now available
The maps of our ride routes are on the RIDE DESCRIPTION page. Obviously because of the fluid nature of this group these are flexible and can be and are often adapted to suit the needs of participants.
We were unable to link them to the CALENDAR so if anyone has a clue let us know.
About Port Stephens Cycle Group
We are a Bicycle User Group (BUG) who have organized rides around the bay area. Our rides start and finish from the same points and cater for all ages and standards. The rides vary from 15klm up to 50+klm.
We are not competitive simply a social group who are hoping to grow. Being “real” bike riders we always have a coffee stop usually at the mid point of a ride but some of our shorter rides will start and finish near a cafe.
The aim is to get riders to share their routes and lead rides along these routes.
We also act as advocacy for cycling related manners around eastern Port Stephens consulting with Council on important matters as they crop up.
Our rides are listed in our Rides Calendar and Pushon http://www.pushon.com.au/rides/RidesCalendar_filter.asp
which is Bicycle NSW calendar listed under PSCG (non affiliated) We also put out a fortnightly newsletter which you can subscribe to. Details about the rides are on our Ride Description page.
