When: 
Tuesday, 5 June, 2018 - 18:00

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

Duration: 
1.5 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
I'll be there, no matter what the weather.
Meeting Point: 

Hookham's Corner Garage (corner of Peats Ferry Road and Galston Road)

Details:

The Tuesday Dash ride leaves Hookham's Corner Garage all year round at 6pm sharp riding along the Old Pacific Highway down to the bottom of Brooklyn where we turn and ride back up the hill to re-gather at the Water Gardens, just up from "Pie in the Sky". We then Dash back to Hornsby at about 7:30pm.

Safety is paramount, especially riding on the busy Old Pacific Highway and turns on the front are rolled over on the way out to Brooklyn with the lead two riders peeling off to the left with the bunch safely passing the leaders every few minutes.

It is a reasonably quick social pace on the way out to the Brooklyn turn-around but a "no drop" ride until we get to Pig Hill. Some riders in the bunch may either wait at the re-gather point at the Water Gardens or alternatively just ride down to the helicopter pad and turn around (which is about half way down the descent on the way to the Brooklyn turn-around). The idea is that we all get to the re-gather point at about the same time. The heat gets turned up with the pace on the return journey but no one gets left behind!

The second (and fifth) Tuesday of the month is designated a Pizza Dash with all welcome back for pizza at Bambinos at Hornsby from 7:30pm.... $18 all you can eat + BYOG!
