  6. The GCCC ride is well worth the money. I did mine about 2 years ago in it's first year. For $45 we got a good 7 hours of riding and tuition, a polo shirt, lunch and water at each stop. The ride covers more road awareness than anything else. We followed the team leader for a couple of km's and watched how he behaved in traffic, then each rider took turns being in the lead of the individual groups. When we pulled over the team leader would discuss our good and bad things we did. Emphasis is placed on position of your bike when riding, giving yourself a good buffer zone and looking ahead at the traffic. We covered well over 250kms that day.

  9. WOW, this sounds brilliant. Go GCC!!!

    I have just emailed Newcastle & Lake Macquarie City Council's (my local area) with the link & request for something similar....at least put he thought in their minds.

    If they come back with a positive response I will post it in this forum. [-o<
