There was a Randwick Coogee Bicycle Club but they only survived fr...

Recognising DHBC Mentors - A long DHBC tradition of Mentoring

By the late 2000s adult membership grew exponentially in the DHBC for the first time. However between the 1900s and ‘80s, our club (like many other bicycle clubs) were dominated by children.

2017 Sydney Classic Bicycle Show - 6 May photos from event

No rain, the sun was out and the weather was a wonderful. Great turn out with about 40 bikes and about 14 stalls. A bit down on last year but that can be attributed to the cancellation (due to bad weather back in March). We'll have better luck next year. However we had a few coups this year: 1. Scor...

Too many fast riders in the C28s to Waterfall

Last weeks C28s ride to Waterfall was huge. I was riding the Middies and thought i saw a good 20 or so riders in a huge peleton heading to Waterfall.
Some stronger riders have to move up to the Middies. You know who you are. It is not that hard. It might even be fun.

Once we get it embroided it would be hard to return it Matt. You'll need to get the measurements correct. See men's chart above.
If it is any help, I have a 40inch or 101cm chest size. I have a sample 40 inch jersey for you to look at.
