Toowoomba-Warwick Supported Tour
NovemberNov 24 2018 07:00 - NovemberNov 25 2018 14:00 Australia/Brisbane
The 12th annual BBTA Toowoomba-Warwick Supported Tour is coming up on the weekend of 24 & 25 November 2018, with the start and finish of the ride in Cambooya, about 20 minutes south-west of Toowoomba. Saturday's ride is 95km and the ride back on Sunday 80km. And we finish at the pub in Cambooya, so food and drink are available to celebrate the finish!
On Saturday we travel from Cambooya on quiet country roads through the country town of Allora (70km), where we stop for morning tea at Amy's Country Cafe before arriving in Warwick (95km). On Sunday we head back through Allora (25km), stopping in Clifton (50km) for morning tea before the very relaxing finish at the pub in Cambooya (80km).
If you are in for this supported weekend tour please email Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org, with registrations closing two weeks before the tour. This ride is for BBTA members only, so if you are not a member, join now (go to www.bbta.org)!

START/FINISH TIMES & SPEED GROUPS
The tour starts from 7:00am onwards on Saturday 18 November. The plan is to have 3 speed groups for the tour, depending on numbers, with groups starting at different times. Each day the slowest group will start earliest, so that we all finish within a similar time frame.
Proposed Speed Groups and Start times:
A - 7:00am: 18-22km/h
B - 7:20am: 23-26km/h
C - 7:40am: 27+km/h
The support vehicles are there to carry your o’nite clothes/change of cycling gear - they are not sag wagons! You will be expected to achieve the distances stated without assistance and carrying your basic food/drink requirements. At this stage we will have several support vehicles, with Paula, Carmel, Kate and Ann likely drivers at this stage.
POST RIDE SATURDAY
For the Warwick tour we will have tents set up at the motel for the finish under which we can relax and enjoy a social gathering with a few drinks. Bring your loose change! And take a wander into Warwick - it has some great cafes!
