Less that 2 weeks to go

30 Oct


bathersJust a reminder of a few things in the lead up to what will hopefully be a glorious sixth edition of the annual Newcastle Overnight ride.

1: Make sure you register over at the Audax Australia site.

2:Make sure you are familiar with the lighting requirements. We can’t sign you in on the night unless you meet the requirements. 2 independent front lights, 2 independent rear lights, reflector attached to bike, and a hi vis jacket or Gillet.

3: Pre dinner is on again at the lovely York Lane Bar. Its really hard signing in 300+ in the dark at Observatory Hill so come down to York Lane and avoid the crush. York Lane will be serving beer and coffee as well as other drinks and pasta. If you are planning on coming for a spot of dinner, take the time to TXT Dieter on 0415 236 351 so we have a rough guide on how much food to make.

4: We have a generous array of prizes from our sponsors up for grabs.

Prize categories are: Most inappropriate bike, Award for camaraderie, and Last arrival.

This year we have some fantastic prizes to give away including: a custom hand built stem from Killen Bike in Newtown, A service voucher from Wheely Convenient Mobile Bicycle Mechanics, and $100 gift vouchers from Metro Cycles and Omafiets Dutch Bicycles

All completed Audax cards deposited at the finish will also go into the draw to win a set of K-lite Dynamo lights from K-Lite and Ghost Gum Bikes

Hopefully they will leave their lighting behind….
