The 15th annual Australian Bike Friday Club gathering at Grafton was
green, grassy and great for about one hundred cyclists of all shapes and
sizes, aged from 8 to 80, who met at the end of March with their custom
built beauties in all the colors of the rainbow including around 18
tandems and about 16 first timers. The camp ground was exceptionally
beautiful with plenty of space for tents, cabins and vans. Thanks to
Bronwyn for this choice and for all the planning involved.
Rides were varied in length and location to suit the group, with
Ulmarra's old pub being a favoured destination a couple of times,
situated on the banks of the Clarence River with lunches served under
the spreading trees where bats were making their presence known and
little lizards were sunning on the grass. Sudden rain storms kept us on
our toes at times but the sun shone most of the time. It was an
experience to ride on the old Bendy Bridge alongside the railway track
with cars on the overhead level.
Four Guide Dogs joined us this year, two black and two cream Labradors,
a special time for all. Signs warned cyclists not to feed the dogs which
are on special diets but the dogs did not read the signs so at one lunch

We had five riders from USA and three from Canada who were welcome, most
on return visits. Many ABFC cyclists were again generous in donating
money as well as a variety of goods for auction at the formal Saturday
night dinner where over $2000 was raised for our charity, Guide Dogs.
Some quality tools, saddles, tires, rims and tubes and other accessories
brought good dollars, as well as some lycra shirts and cycling books.
Special items from blind women included hand knitted scarves and toys
while Pam's trade-mark knitted socks brought spirited and generous bids
up to $200. Some Canadian tinned sardines as well as genuine Maple Syrup
were winners too and we have been promised more of the same next time.
Thanks to G1 and G2 for acting as auctioneers.
The local paper featured ABFC in the Saturday issue with a group photo and article.
The Regional Art Gallery garden was the final lunch spot on Sunday. We look forward to next year in Rutherglen.
