Riders of varying small street beasts from far and near braved the coldest Sydney weekend temps of the year for our oxymoronic winter beach ride .. Following the success, hilarity and entertainment brought on from our last two group rides and filled with a mix high octane fuel (most of us) along with a good dose of adrenaline and spirit, we did it once again last Sunday, with the largest turn out to date, thanks largely to our adoptive, supportive and inclusive friends from the Hunter community and the other ‘small bike’ world of the Honda Groms (insert shameless shout out…. HERE) namely SydneyGromSquad and Gromzunited, Thanks Team.
The meet up point: Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, Sunday 10am. Fresh clear skies and even fresher temps! Everyone was impressively timely, considering some of the distances travelled prior to arrival at our meet up location. With a starting group of 50 riders, we took to the obligatory tour group photos in front of the most iconic harbour backdrop in the world (Thanks Sydney for putting on the show).
After getting the friendliest nod from the Federal police presence at "the chair", our ride began.. Armed this time with a few tasty give away treats for the first rider’s raffle and the largest group assembled so far. AWESOME WORK TEAM!!
We rode the Sydney city streets, The Harbour and Spit bridges northward on through the forest lined Wakehurst Pkwy on mass, to the world famous Summer Bay!
With a glance to the side of the pack every now and then, the onlookers were waving, most in dismay at what was unfolding in front of them, some filming on their mobile phones what essentially was, lots of big kids, riding fast little bikes, having the time of their lives!
When we all finally arrived through the hairpins and winding suburban streets at Palm Beach (Summer Bay) car park the drone was launched (thanks Tom), the rides were lined up and the raffle was drawn!
