I don't know about you, but January seems to have flown by.
We are still waiting for the details of our newest addition to the fleet, and we are now counting down
till the end of February when they will arrive in Australia, and the first photos can be released.
Just a reminder that we have a "Kickbike 25th year anniversary" tag line for this year.
It's "never grow old", so if you are posting anything onto social media about your kicking activity
this year, then please include the hashtag #nevergrowold and #kickbike25
So, the kicks for the
next 4 weeks are
Sat 9th Feb 6am 16km Meet at the Mango Hill Train Station carpark off Halpine Dr. We will do 1 circuits of the
Murrumba Downs to Kippa-Ring urban Rail trail and return. Those keen for a longer kick at 24km will then continue on to Petrie station and return. Brunch afterwards somewhere in Mango
Hill. I know I told some people that this kick was going to be Sunday, but we have had to change it to
Saturday. Hope that's OK.
Sun 17th Feb 6am Toombul to Nudgee Beach 22km is the full distance, but shorter distances of 10km
and 16km being the main options. Meet at Toombul shopping Centre lowest carpark
