From Lucie, Nazha and Kylie our Budgewoi tea stop team…
As the second tea stop is a bit different this year, I thought I would give you an update. McKenzie Reserve has a large roofed area with a dozen picnic tables, and taps for you to fill up your water bottles. There is a toilet block next door, and a playground nearby – in case you have some extra energy you would like to burn off!
I had hoped to have power which would have meant “real” coffee, but the time of night means this unfortunately cannot be organised. However, we will heat up plenty of water for tea and coffee. I have done some research on the very best instant coffee available, so I don’t think you will be disappointed. For tea, there will be a choice of black, green and herbal.
The food supplies will be plentiful I hope, but the sooner you register for the ride, the better I can plan for what is needed. The signature cookie will be ANZAC biscuits, and there will lots of yummy homemade slices, some gluten free. There will also be fruit, muesli bars, lollies etc.
If you have any requests for favourite cycling snacks, feel free to use the comments section below, and I will consider all suggestions.
Look forward to seeing you, early on Sunday morning. Hopefully we will have some Christmas lights to greet you.
