Two of Bike North's premier events are over for 2017 - the annual Tour de Cowra and the BN Century Challenge.

The TdeC was, again, a great success. Some 75 riders roamed around Cowra and its surrounds with rides of varying lengths ranging from 57km up to 124km. The routes were well planned, the maps provided were first class, the weather was perfect, the scenery was great, the campground was an ideal setting for socialising. As President, I could only attend for one day with family commitments in nearby Cootamundra (also great for cycling) but thoroughly enjoyed my time in and around Cowra. Congratulations and thank you, Peter Green and Karen Toddie, for yet another fabulous TdeC. Thank you also to Christine Jessep and the Social Committee for the cheese and other nibbles and for arranging the dinners.

The BNCC was also held in great weather on 30 April. With only eight teams participating numbers were down on previous years which is a little disappointing. Nevertheless, we owe real thanks to Justin Holmwood for organising the day and thank you also to his team of volunteers who helped by being on checkpoints, barbecuing, etc. Well done all!

My suggestion? Put both TdeC (Easter) and BNCC (last weekend in April) in your calendar for next year!
