Canberra Ride Week – April 2019

Canberra 2019

Tuesday April 2nd to Thursday April 4th

This year’s Kiama BUG bike ride trip will be in the nation’s capital Canberra, the home of our political masters. It’s rumoured our most famous pedalling pollie Tony Abbott will make an appearance just to appease all you “lefties“ out there!

For accommodation the ALIVIO Tourist Park is recommended.
– Website – aliviogroup.com.au
– Phone -(02) 6247 5466.

The park covers a wide range of accommodation. It is also where all the rides will be starting from. (Checkout the reviews on google or look for other accommodation under Canberra accommodation.)

It is a 2 ¾ hr drive from Kiama, so you will need to book from Monday 1st.

Rides will be planned for the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The rides will be on Canberra’s extensive network of bike paths.

The drill will be the same as in previous years – ride in the morning, afternoons free, then meet in the evenings for a meal.

A more detailed programme of the rides and evening meal arrangements will be sent out closer to the event
