The BRAG Ride (2020)
THE 23rd BRAG RIDE
SAT 11th JAN 2020
You are invited to enter the 23st edition of the BRAG ride (previously known as the “Canberra” ride or the “BIG” ride).
As before the ride is fully supported with two mini-buses that will escort the ride and provide energy food, water, other drinks and access to your bags. The buses will transport the riders and bikes back to the start (Beecroft station) on Sunday, arriving at about 3 pm.
Registration alone is $6.00 for Audax members and $16.00 for non-members (includes insurance).
I have attached a reader-friendly cue sheet here (same distance however!).
The ride will start at 4am sharp at the Beecroft railway station car park (eastern side, off Sutherland Rd to the left just after bridge over railway line) to enable most riders to finish in Goulburn by 7pm (15 hours from the start) although midnight is the official Audax closing time. You should thus arrive at the start at 3:30am! There will be a lighting and reflective vest inspection before the start.
The rest stop in Bundanoon at Ye Olde Bicycle Cafe will be ideal for lunch.
We finish at the Goulburn Central Motor Lodge (120 Auburn St), where we spend the night (mostly twin share rooms). 4821 1655.
Dinner is booked at the Paragon for 7:30pm (and is included in the entry fee, although alcohol is not).
A basic Breakfastwill be available in the room of the BRAG commander-in-chief from 7:30am (included).
There will be an optional short recovery ride on Sunday morning (about 27 km; from 8:30 to 10am). We then load the bikes into the trailer
