Whenever anyone asks where we live and the reply is Guyra, the next retort is usually similar to “that bloody cold place!” Recently, however, one of our members had to venture away from here in search of snow. He shared a few pic’s which showed more snow than we had here this year.
Our next meeting will be held Saturday 3rd March 2019. All welcome!
The Glen Innes crew (Mayor Toms and friends) travelled on Sunday to ride with their Guyra neighbours and local riders Ken, Michael and Dave. This ride started a few years back and has coincided with the last weekend of the Lamb and Potato Festival. The 9am start from Rafters took the peloton north along Llangothlin Road to Ben Lomond. After a short rest and inspection of the local historic buildings and sites, it was decided to return for lunch at our local favourite restaurant, Rafters. Many positive comments were made about our potential tourism opportunities and abandoned infrastructure.
Challenging trail, beautiful surrounds, perfect weather and a great bunch of people to spend the day with… what more could you ask for?

Doug is a keen cyclist and rode in the recent Tenterfield to Murwillumbah ride supporting Rotary Glen Innes, congratulations Doug.
It’s always refreshing to the eye and mind to view a different coloured landscape. This morning allowed 4 local riders to experience Guyra at its whitest for 2016. Kenny, Gary, Dave and our resident photographer Pete decided the roads were too slippery and the Mother of Ducks Lagoon was to place to pedal on our running machines. It’s a surprisingly good workout and amazing how many enjoy and share this beautiful recreational area.
Sunday 12 th of June saw 13 hardy riders set off in the cold wind and drizzle. A flat tyre at Llangothlin ensured the speedier Road bike peloton caught up with the Mountain bike rabble before Ben Lomond….but at least that meant we could have a group photograph at the railway sign. The fat tyre crew headed down the Wandsworth Road which is one of our nicest rides, the speedsters took on the longer Moredun Road which they all enjoyed (except Ken who was still on his MTB).
