There will be live radio crosses to the ride, between the studio and an outside broadcast located at the turnaround point at Lake Munmorah

A Warm Welcome To Our Friends From Bicycle NSW

Only ‘days’ to go …

Sunday the 8th of March is just around the corner.  Register on line now!  On-line registrations are possible until 9AM Saturday 7th of March. After that just turn up at Speers Point park, and visit the registration desk which will be open from well before 7 am.

Update snippets for your interest.

This year our Club board has decided to donate some of the money raised through the Loop charity ride to the Bushfire Appeal.  The funds will be channeled through Rotary’s Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) delivering humanitarian aid through the Australian regional network of Rotarians and Clubs which put up many worthwhile community projects in Australia and overseas.

For the Family Ride this year, which as you know goes around the foreshore cycle-way to Warners Bay (or Eleebana) and back, we have issued a challenge to some of the primary schools in the area.  We have a prize of two hundred dollars-worth of books of their own choosing for the school which puts together the most people as a team to ride to Warners Bay and back.  A great opportunity to exchange a bit of ‘puff’ for a valuable contribution to the school library.

We are anticipating that radio station ‘Lake Macquarie FM 97.3’ is going to join in this year with live radio crosses to the ride, between the studio and an outside broadcast located at the turnaround point at Lake Munmorah.  So watch out for the team there, you might end up on the radio, and become famous for your ‘loopy’ exploits! 

Meanwhile at Speers Point Park, one new exhibit you will find interesting is the Polio-Plus Trailer.  You may not know that cases of polio due to wild poliovirus have decreased by over 99% since 1988, from an estimated 350,000 cases then, to 33 reported cases world-wide in 2018. As long as a single child remains infected, children in all countries are at risk of contracting polio.  See a real ‘Iron lung’ at this display. In many like it, thousands of people spent their whole life confined on their back to living in the machine, otherwise they couldn’t breathe. Rotary and the Bill Gates Foundation is in partnership to erase the disease from the face of the earth, and we’re this close!

I’ve paid my entry fee, what happens now?
