Re: Ride for Robbie
I would like to express on behalf of the family our sincere gratitude for Nowra Velo Club?s crucial
support of last weekend?s Ride for Robbie. We realise that without the generous donation of time
and effort by club members as commissaires or in any other capacity, the event could not have
From our perspective, the event was well attended with, as you know, some 150 registered
entrants ranging from current and former NRS riders to club level competitors, including a separate
grade for women. It was a pity that some riders were unable to attend owing to extreme weather
elsewhere in the state and in the ACT.
All those riders to whom I spoke enjoyed the day very much and I received a great deal of very
positive feedback from riders keen to return.
A sum of $800 dollars was presented to us for donation on Robbie?s behalf to a suitable charity
and, at this stage, the family are considering either the Australian Genetic Heart Disease
foundation or the Qhubeka foundation which provides bicycles for children in Africa.
Once again, on behalf of Robbie?s family, I thank you for Nowra Velo?s support of what we
considered to be a fabulously successful weekend. I hope both NVC and CNSW were also
favourably impressed and are positively disposed toward helping the event survive and prosper.
It was lovely to see Brad McGee in attendance and my Sue was able to relate a little anecdote to
Brad about how Robbie saw him as a huge inspiration in his early cycling career.
