We will meet at the Byron Sports Ground Car Park at 7.30 am and cycle in to The Pass on the cycle way for a special New Year's morning breakfast. Then a swim will be a great idea and a getaway before Byron wakes up. Your swimming gear will be available at the Pass. Naturally all non cycling members can join in. A Lighthouse walk followed by breakfast at The Pass is a great start to the year. You must register by Dec 30 in order to have a seat reserved for you at the cafe. Leader Ian 0459496194
