This Saturday 17 Dec 2016, RBCC is conducting it annual Christmas Pudding Races. Besides the usual prize money there will be Christmas Puddings on offer for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place getters in all grades. We will also have sprint primes, mid race, to give some other lucky riders the chance of winning an RBCC Christmas Pudding.
This will be the last race for 2016. RBCC wishes everyone a very merry Christmas. Racing will resume on First Saturday of February 2017.
The Sunday Cronulla ride has been very successful and growing. There are still people however who will not go south because of their fear of Southern Cross Drive. In light of the recent second Easts bunch incident on Southern Cross Drive, we have decided to by-pass this dangerous section of road. Upon investigation a by-pass is not that difficult due to recent road changes.
The new route will proceed as per the course of the Giro de Kelloggs, however when we get to the bottom of Stephen Road at the intersection of Botany Road, we will turn right instead of the usual left. We will then proceed north on Botany Road till we get to Hale Street Botany. We will then turn left into Hale and follow it down to where it intersects (traffic light controlled) with Foreshore Road. A right turn onto Foreshore Road and we only have to travel about 100 metres before we turn left into General Holmes Drive and another approximate 100 metres puts us into the Boeing Tunnel heading south.
Let’s try it and see how it goes. See you Sunday morning. Ride leaves at 7am sharp from the Randwick gates of Centennial Park.
