Congratulations to the 2015 Heroic !
The weekend was brilliant ! The roads dusty and awash with gravel, the bikes the best in the state. And any rider to finish, participate or put wheel to road should be saluted.
I will not mince words but this year the dry weather deepened the gravel sections. some pedal strokes were harder than others and a few skids turned to tumbles.
But... the satisfaction on the riders faces at presentations was ear to ear !
The Beverley Heroic Town Ride saw 84 riders as young as 5 following the map.Their circuit around Beverley shared local history and local sites, took about an hour. The puzzle solution was " Wear a Helmet" and the smiles were all round.
Our Retro Bike Show and Bike Movies were a hit and on the program for 2016. And the Road beckons for a race on Saturday afternoon. So more good times to come.
Thankyou to the behind the scenes volunteers who the weekend rests on. They too are Heroic.
Ride happy, ride like the wind.
