This is going to be another one of those ‘What/Who do you recommend posts’ but I don’t care, I seriously want to know. I am an ex, very serious bike rider (Jap Sports Bikes) who has just got back into riding after 8 years without a bike. Maybe i’m going through a mid life crisis early (i’m 34), maybe i’ve just never grown up, who knows?. But, I’ve just bought what in my day was a serious bike, a ZX6r Ninja and am looking for fellow enthusiasts to ride with.
I’m too young for the Ulysses club and a bit too old for any boy racer clubs who like to show off. All my ex riding buddies have grown up, got married, had kids and no longer ride. I don’t have the confidence I once had and am no longer crazy/stupid enough to have the front wheel in the air the full length of Northbourne from Ipima to London Circuit or see how high I can get the back wheel off the ground (although the boy inside still thinks that’s cool, I could tell you some stories).
I am looking for a group/club or bunch of blokes/gals/enthusiasts, that enjoys bikes and bike riding, has occasional weekend rides out to the Cotter ect, is not too serious and is very social. I don’t think there is much in the way of this kind of club in Canberra and if anyone can recommend one i’d be happy to check them out.
Even if you have no idea, but ride bikes and are keen to get together for the odd ride and a bit of fun then let me know. I m planning to take my new toy out for some fun to the Cotter this weekend and some company would be good.
