Berry and breakfast go hand in hand

ON Sunday, April 13 SBUG will ride to Berry for breakfast, starting at 8am from the Nowra Visitors Centre car park.

Riders will return via Coolangatta, Back Forest and Bolong roads using bitumen with some traffic and one significant hill.

Last Sunday’s ride from Berry to the beach was attended by seven riders. 

The weather was overcast with occasional light rain showers, but all enjoyed the quick ride to Gerroa beach and back. 

The group met for morning tea at the Bookshop Café.

This Thursday’s midweek mountain bike ride on April 10 will start at 9am from the turn-off to Hyams Beach. 

It will be about a 30 kilometre cycle out to Lone Pine Reserve along Ellmoos Road in the Booderee National Park, then via Bherwerre Beach to Caves Beach for a swim, if suitable. 

Riders will use bitumen with some traffic, unsealed road, the sand at low tide and a single lane bush track. 

Bring a snack, water and swimmers.

Bathers will stop for refreshments at the Bayview Cafe in Vincentia after the ride and the university cafe on the return leg.
