On Saturday 27th February 2016, Club members are invited to the Soldier on Cycling Ride from Woodend.
To join the ride, be at the South side Woodend Railway Station car park at 7.15 am ready to depart at 7.30 am . The ride is organised in conjunction with Soldier on Cycling. It is about 82 km riding round the Mount to Gisborne, Riddles Ck, Romsey, Lancefield, Carlesruhe then back to Woodend. Click here to see the Ride Map.
Please fill out the form below if you wish to participate.
Soldier On’s mission is to achieve the best reintegrated generation of serving and ex-serving men and women in Australia’s history. To achieve this, Soldier On supports those who have served by focusing on their physical and mental health, their family, their community, and their future.
72,000 Australians have served in the Australian Defence Force since 1990, and thousands will be effected by their service, be it physically or psychologically. Soldier On provides a suite of services and access to partner organisations to meet the needs of our wounded so that they can start their journey on their road to recovery. See the Soldier On Active Facebook page.
Saturday’s Ride will be for veterans and anyone else who would like to show support by riding with them.
There may be a refueling stop at Romsey as well as the obligatory coffee at the end at an appropriate venue (either the Bakery or the The Chambers).
Depending on how the group is feeling the ride may be shortened. The idea is to keep the peleton together regardless of the capability of the various riders. To help conversation, name labels will be given to each rider. The anticipated average speed will be approx 20 km/h.
