NSCC's Bob Santone, Simon Davis and Neil Matthews are doing the 2014 Sydney to Surfers Bike Ride for the Youth off the Streets Charity (YOTS). This is Simon's first, Bob's 2nd and Neil's 7th ride.
The ride starts on Saturday 3rd May and involves pedalling 1000kms over 7 days to raise much needed funds for YOTS ... what a fantastic objective neatly combined with huge base training before the NSW open road racing season. Together, three riders will push about 1 million pedal strokes from here to there!
Barry Kenyon and Neil Matthews have been cutting a trail to Dunc Gray velodrome to participate in the Bankstown Cycling Club 13-race track summer series. Both Barry and Neil were in C-grade and competition across all 6 grades was a high standard.
Barry finished overall top of C-grade with a large number of points, with Neil finishing sixth overall. Barry has already been advised that he is in B-grade next year.
