Replacement Belt for Rollers

Hi I went to use my rollers on Sunday, and the belt snapped, luckily not while I was on them. They are Cinelli (I think) rollers, noisy as hell, but they still work. Does anyone know the best place to source a replacement belt for these? Or is it possible to repair them? It has broken at the join. B...

How much interest is there in the club for these rides to continue? I know that I haven't been there for the last couple of rides, but it has felt that most of the time there is usually only 1 or 2 other riders who are doing these.

I would pretty much follow the Sydney to Gong route down to Thirroul, and then up Bulli Pass.

There we could either take the Old Princess Highway all the way back to Waterfall, or the F6 to Helensburg, and then the Old Princess Highway to Waterfall.

Assuming that not everyone parties too hard on Thursday night, who fancies a good ride on Friday morning?

I was going to do Bulli Pass. About 150km from Marrickville. Rating, very hard, Bulli Pass is about 3.5km averaging about 10%.
