2020 Century and Half Century Rides Sun July 26
Assuming restrictions continue to be relaxed by the Queensland State Government, the Club's Annual Century (161 kms) and Half-Century (80.5 kms) rides will be held on SUNDAY July 26, 2020.
Time: Meet no later than 6:30am at the Clubhouse for a 6:45am departure – don’t be late, as we don’t wait!

These are club social rides, so please wear your Hamilton Wheelers club kit. In true club spirit, we will work together to share the load, while also looking out for each other and lending support where we can. Feel free to invite any non-club friends who you believe can last the distance – but they will be your responsibility!
Century Ride Details:
Ride Leader: Mick Cole (Hamilton Wheelers’ Club Captain)
The ride is very much intended to be a social ride, so if you have always wanted to ride a century (161 kms) but have been worried about doing it alone, this is your chance. Each year we have a few members complete their first century ride with us, and I am sure they’d agree that the ride was challenging in places, but very achievable. Average pace is generally around 28 to 30 km/h, depending on conditions and participants.
We will leave the clubhouse at 6:45am (sharp) and make our way out to Landsborough, where we will grab a takeaway coffee and something to eat before setting off home. After we have ridden back to Nundah, it's time to enjoy a free beer, soft drink and sausage sizzle!
If you have any questions, send Mick an email
Half-Century Ride Details:
Ride Leader: Kim ‘ Fless’ Flesser (Hamilton Wheelers’ Vice-Captain)
For those who don't fancy the challenge of the century ride or simply don't have the time to go the distance, why not join the 50-mile (80.5 km) ride?
Same route as last year – Travel along the Kedron Brook onto the new Gateway Bikeway to Brighton, cross the bridge, on to Scarborough, back to the bridge via Elizabeth Ave, through Sandgate, Shorncliffe, Deagon, Boondall Wetlands, Nudgee Beach and back to the clubhouse. We can whip up to Nundah to get a coffee at the end of the ride. This is a slightly slower ride than the Century, averaging around 25 to 26 km/h.
