145 CLASSIC on SUNDAY 19 MARCH

BiciSport is supporting the Sir David Foundation with a 145k charity ride on Sunday 19 March. The 145k ride from Centennial Park to Kiama will have approximately 150 starters (across 8 seperate bunches) who have all raised funds to support the Sir David Martin Foundation. Would you like to assist on the day ?, get in a 145k training ride, a new Cuore jersey and get fed very well ?. Sounds like you.  What we need is 12 Bunch Leaders to assist the 8 bunches (of 20 riders each) get from Centennial Park to Kiama. The Bunch Leaders will receive a special Cuore jersey plus breakfast at Centennial Park & lunch in Kiama. Bunch Leaders don't need to raise money for the Foundation, just assist those that do. It's a great day out for a great cause. We also need 6 car drivers to assist on the day. For further details contact Mike O'Reilly on bicisport1@gmail.com or 0417 403 244.
