Lots of the items in the Cudlee Cafe are grown or produced by locals, many having been affected by the recent fires. So this Tuesday we are dropping in for our mid-ride coffee break. Babette is looking forward to our visit around 11.00 am.
Usual start from Balhannah Oval at 9.30 am. Two suggested optional routes. Fox Creek Road has been closed for a while for clean up work, so may not be a convenient shortcut. TT Jan. 14, 2020
Derek Wells’ wife Lyn would like us to promote the following.
WOMEN’S TOUR DOWN UNDER
Echunga is hosting Stage 1 WOMEN’S Tour Down Under 3 sprint point finishes in our little village with the wonderful wide and long Main Street on Thursday 16 January 2020.
As a member of the Echunga Community Association, we are planning to promote the women’s event to our locality and hopefully wider audience by the “theme it’s all natural”.
Living walls of potted yellow and orange flowers, decorated trees, bikes and fences with non plastic decorations.
Fresh fruit will be handed out to kids rather than junk foods.
There are 2 good coffee outlets now and the Hagen Arms is doing good meals now in an atmospheric old country pub.
I would like you to please spread the message through your group that Echunga would really appreciate some cyclists in the street to cheer on the women.
Cyclists pass through 3 times between 10am and 1.15 pm.
You would add to the street atmosphere and maybe create some interest in the sport of cycling.
