Buy a Shirt, Or Sticker, From Rivendell and Help Ukraine $3-33

Rivendell is joining in the aide to help Ukraine:

We’re trying to raise money quickly to help Ukraine, so we’re preselling new shirts and stickers. All the profits will go to United Help Ukraine and we’ll ship shirts and stickers out as soon as they get here. The shirts might take a bit, but the stickers should be here around the 10th.  If you need other stuff, make a separate order so it’ll ship sooner.

Both the stickers and the shirts have a Ukrainian variation on the familiar Peace Wheel art. We’re getting the shirts in both long and short sleeve and both have pockets over the left breast.

If you’d like to donate more, you can pick a higher price before checking out and we’ll make sure it goes to the right place. Thanks in advance for helping!

BPS 600 – Bike Packing Event in South East Queensland

The BPS 600/ 400 is back for 2022! The BPS 600 is a 650km BRUTAL MTB/ Gravel ride, covering SEQs most challenging terrain. The first edition of the BPS 600 was held late December 2021. Formally known as the BPS Hunt 600, as it was originally run as a QLD alternative to the postponed Hunt 1000. The BPS Hunt 600 quickly gained in popularity, leading to a shorter, yet arguably harder route being created, BPS Hunt 300. No one is yet to complete the entire BPS Hunt 300 course. The 2022 event finish date will be July 3rd.

This year, BPS is holding the BPS 600 & BPS 400. The 600 following basically the same route as last year’s 600 event. The course is brutal and not for the faint of heart. 650km with 12, 000m. We had a total of 7 riders finish the entire course. The 400 course has been redesigned, being a much easier route, way more enjoyable. Although the route is remote in parts, there is still a number of towns/ shops along the way. Food & water must be taken seriously.
