Postby marc2131 » Fri Nov 08, 2013 6:30 pm

Hi all,

The 'Ride for Life' is an event which supports cancer survivors. It is in it's 10th year in 2013 and raisers much needed money for the 'Cancer Survivor's Centre' http://www.rideforlife.org.au/
For the very first time, the organisers want to run a Vintage bicycle Scratch race. This 'scratch race' will be graded, so cyclist of similar(ish) capabilities and fitness levels will start at different times. The format of the race will be confirmed by the organisers.
Bicycles dating from 1990 and earlier are welcome.

Event Date: Sunday 17th November 2013
Event Name: Ride for Life

Registration:
If you are a current member of Cycling NSW and a licensed rider click here: https://wic021v.server-secure.com/vs711 ... /login.cfm (log in and select the event). Cost is $30.

If you are not a member of CNSW register here: http://www.rideforlife.org.au/event-entry/
Cost is $60 and largely covers insurance for the event.

Regards,
Marc

Andy, $60 for a good cause. $30 if you have a CNSW race license.
BTW, we have 8 vintage bike entries to date and counting.

Anyone who registers for this vintage scratch race, please PM me to let me know. I need to let the Ride for Life organisers know the numbers.
Thanks

I have entered the event through Cycling NSW (although it had to be done manually on the phone as the event wasn't listed on the calendar). It will my Colnago Mexico's first race at Heffron since its previous owner raced A Grade at Heffron regularly on it about 20 years ago.

Message for On the Rivet. Tried PM but no luck.
Please contact Adrian Atherton, Ride for Life organizer on adrianatherton@yahoo.com or mobile 0410 077 790. There appears to be a problem with your registration.

I have spoken to Adrian. He was concerned as to whether I hold a racing Licence which I do. All ok. See you on Sunday.

Some pics from today's 'Ride for Life' cycling event held at Heffron Park, Maroubra (Sydney).

Total of 13 riders signed up for 6 laps of the 2.04km course. Very wet track, slowed the pace but still relatively quick.
Image

Event MC Paul Craft interviewed all the riders on track before sending us off in a handicapped/staggered start. Here he speaks to Jimmy with his 1940s Healing road bike.

No photos of the actual race yet - hopefully someone took some. A Dulwich Hill Bicycle Club clean sweep - 1st John Mason (1980 Blom), 2nd Simon Berry (mid 80s unknown) and 3rd Marc Rerceretnam (1985 Raleigh Team Panasonic).
