Tod Hamilton Celebration Ride: This is a celebration of the life of “a rider’s rider” who passed away last weekend. Tod was disabled for much of his adult life and his father has already passed, so his pensioner mother is left with little money and few options for a proper send-off. Riders are asked to throw a minimum of $10 into the donation bucket to support Margaret. The ride starts at the Samford Pub at 8.30am and ends at Cormorant Bay, Lake Wivenhoe. Check the route map.
