Geoff Bensley, Byron Bay.

I want to say that the new shortened bike course allowed East and West Suffolk Park exit and entry while the race was happening, such a fantastic idea.

The road signage and letter box drops was very much appreciated.

On the day I watched the children competing between 11am and midday before heading home to Baywood Chase via Midgen Flat Rd without any problems.

I hope that the race continues as we have many community members who are also in the local cycle club , running club and swimming club competing in the event .

I did notice the Byron Bay Ladies Hospital Auxiliary acting as volunteers in the event also.

  1. Lucky you. The rest of town was cut off for hours. It’s outrageous. Bikes are great. I ride. But it’s the wrong town for this race. Only route through town cut off for hours.
