The the 6th annual BBTA Murwillumbah-Lismore Supported Tour will occur on the weekend of 29/30 May 2021. Please contact Peter Brennan (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register for the tour, nominating your average speed group.
By registering you are automatically booked into the accommodation in Lismore (at The Dawson and Lismore City motels) and all payments are due 2 weeks out from the tour (15 May). If you have a person or group happy to share a room(s) please let Peter know when registering. Also, if you have a non-riding partner who will be joining you in Lismore for accommodation/dinner please let Peter know for bookings. Please indicate if you would prefer a single room.
If you know already that you are a definite for the ride let Peter know ASAP! The quicker we have our nominated riders booked in the easier it will be to lock in our accommodation. This ride is for BBTA members only, so if you are not a member, join now (go to www.bbta.org)! The ride will start and finish at Knox Park, Murwillumbah.
After parking in the streets of Murwillumbah, Saturday’s ride begins with the first group leaving at 7:30am and travels through the town of Uki before a coffee break at Sphinx Rock Cafe, Mt Burrell (30km). Then it is on to morning tea, over the main climb of the weekend, at the little village of Cawongla (53km) before riding on through the valley, following Leycester Creek and finishing the day relaxing in Lismore (90km) and enjoying a few cold drinks.
Sunday’s ride is equally scenic with a total of 82km back to Murwillumbah via Nimbin (33km) for a coffee break and Uki (65km) for a break at the Uki pub.
