President Brian Lawrenson

    Rotary Club of Breakfast Point

    Dear Brian

    Here is the latest update for our ride around the District for the Great Australian Bike Ride.

As you are all aware by now that The Great Australian Bike Ride ththwill be stopping in Parramatta from 16 to the 19 April. So on ththFriday the 17 April and Saturday the 18 April, I along with some

    other riders will ride around our District, aprox 300kms, taking a scroll to get signed by all Presidents or representatives from the respective clubs to hand over to Australian rotary Health on behalf of District 9690.

     thWe will be arriving in your part of the world on Friday 17 April

    at aprox 10.00am and departing at aprox 10.15am, we will be coming in from Concord probably down Gale Street to the Village Green the heading to Burwood probably up Kendall Street to Cabarita Road and over to Burwood Road.

    You suggested a meeting point for your club on the day would be , if you or any of your members have any other suggestions as to the route we could take both in and out of your area, this would be a great advantage as you have intimate knowledge of your area.

    It would be greatly appreciated if you could make available either a couple of bottles of water, juice or soft drink and maybe some biscuits, a snack bar, muesli bar or some fruit to help the riders on their way. There should only be about 4 or 5 riders at each point and a couple in the support team but this will be confirmed also as it gets nearer.

    As I’ve said in previous correspondence I’m hoping that if you have members of your club or family or friends that would like to participate by riding a few kms either to or from your club to the next that you can let me know, they will be greatly accepted into the fold, I assure you.

    Please contact me if you have any questions whatsoever also if you wish me to come and discuss details with you or your club. Let’s get behind the Great Australasian Bike Ride when it comes to our District and show Australian Rotary Health and the riders travelling through our fair City from Melbourne on their way to Brisbane, that District 9690 salutes their progress via way of our scroll.

Yours in Rotary Service
