Come along for the 2nd annual BBTA Murwillumbah-Lismore Supported Tour. Please contact Peter (pbrennan58@gmail.com) to register for the tour, nominating your average speed group. 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.
By registering you are automatically booked into the accommodation in Lismore. 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.
The Ride
After parking in the streets of Murwillumbah Saturday’s ride travels through the town of Uki before a coffee break at Sphinx Rock Cafe, Mt Burrell (30km). Then it is on to morning tea at the little village of Cawongla (53km) before finishing the day relaxing by the pool in Lismore (90km). Those who did the 2016 ride will notice that the route no longer travels through Kyogle, therefore the ride is 20km shorter and there is almost 700m less climbing. Sunday’s ride is equally as scenic and we get to stop in Nimbin (33km) for a break and Uki (65km) for a drink and some food at the Uki pub before finishing back in Murwillumbah (82km).
