What a great race!!

Congratulations to all those involved in organising and racing at the inaugural Robert Hodgson Memorial race.

While I didn't know Robert personally, the race seemed to be a fitting tribute to a young man who loved his cycling.

A great event, I thoroughly enjoyed watching the action while juggling coffee, cakes and cameras.

Brooklyn Dash Video

Below is a link to video taken on the Christmas pizza version of the Brooklyn dash. I tried to get some footage of all that were present.

My apologies on the layout of this video, I need to get a ball joint for my bike that will allow me to capture in full screen mode.

For those that have yet to do this Tuesday evening ride I can recommend it, especially at present, with the extra daylight making this ride a fantastic way to break up the working week.

Crazy up the coast ride review

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

This ride was conceived over a few glasses of red at a Tuesday pizza night where a few of us had been discussing doing the Bicycle Network's ride to Newcastle. At this point the official event still seems to be struggling with bureaucratic hurdles and entries are yet to open. This is despite the significant demand from Sydney riders for an inspiring sportif ride close to home.

Our plan was pretty simple, just ride to Newcastle then jump on a train and come home. The route we took was aimed at keeping us off the freeway and the busier Central Coast roads.

NSCC Takes on Calga Road Race

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

NSCC had 4 road warriors representing the club today - Rich Makin and Andy Logan in A Grade - and the family unit of Gary and Archie Wilson in B Grade.
As always the racing was fierce with Blood Hill sorting out the strong from the weak. The howling gale on the second lap meant that breakaways mostly got reeled in.
In A grade Rich was up there and tore the legs bridging across to the breakaway but found that effort told on Blood Hill and Rich finished proudly near the front. Andy chased down breaks and as often happens when you've just done a massive effort, some lurker attacks.
