You are invited to come to Cowra at Easter for a long weekend of cycling fun.
It is open to anyone: members and non-members!
Registrations are now open: https://www.bikenorth.org.au/our-events/tour-de-cowra/tour-de-cowra-registration/
Choose your Ride
If you would like to come then talk to your friends and choose your rides – see the Bike North Web calendar page https://www.bikenorth.org.au/cal/, change the month to April, click on GO and see the rides on offer. Anyone with a web browser can check out the rides.
Print your Maps
You can see the route the ride takes and the elevation differences by going to the bottom right of the ride page and clicking on Ride With GPS Map/Cue/Profile/TCX/GPX link.
You can print the maps before Cowra – Click on the MORE option.
Send to device – You can send the route to your smart device: iPhone, Android phone, Garmin or Wahoo so at Easter you will know which way to go.
(Hint: Test this out on a Bike North ride before Easter if you have never done this before.)
First Aid Kits – Available for Cowra
Bike North is selling compact first aid kits suitable for cyclists, prior to Cowra at Easter. The kits are the most compact we have found.
At Cowra, you will be riding in small groups without a Ride Leader. You will often be riding through areas with no phone reception, so you can’t phone for help. Having a kit yourself gives that extra security when riding on your own, or with other groups. It means you can generally respond more immediately, if something happens, which is crucial.
Of course, if you already have one, feel free to bring it along.
For more details about the First Aid kits: content, costs and ordering click on the link https://www.bikenorth.org.au/our-events/tour-de-cowra/ for more details about First Aid kits.
Two “Any Day” Rides
