The season is fast approaching and things will be heating up,  literally.  Just look at what we have lined up so far….

Season Opener is on Sunday 18th September, 3pm-5pm at the Sorrento Surf Lifesaving Club.  If you missed the AGM don’t worry, Emma will be putting the same great spread of nibbles and don’t forget your free drink as well.  We will have a guest speaker and all the details of the upcoming season.  Come along and join your fellow North Coasters for a great social afternoon.

The Lancelin ride is on 24th September and we have hired a trailer to help with the transport of bikes from Lancelin.  If you are intending to ride all the way to Lancelin or even just half way, please contact Kellie O’Neil at kjoneill@iinet.net.au.  This year, we will be raising funds for the Neale Daniher Foundation to find a cure for MND, Motor Neuron Disease.

Stuart is offering another Bike Maintenance Workshop on 2nd October, 3pm to 5pm at Sorrento Surf Club BBQ area.  Bring along your bike and some tools, and Stuart will tell you what they are all used for!!!
