THIS RIDE IS BOOKED OUT
This is the epic ride you have all been waiting for. The 6 silos are waiting for us in the Yarriambiack Shire in the Wimmera plus so much more.
Accommodation will be varied between Motel, Hotel and AirBnb so you are in for a real treat!
We will be covering approximately 1,300kms, with some big days of riding, therefore the ride is restricted to experienced riders only. If in doubt please contact me before signing up. Your bike must be fully serviced including new tyres for this ride. If we have a member who has an equipped vehicle and would like to be our support vehicle, please contact me.

Route will be posted soon. We will be riding up the Western Freeway the first day as far as Ararat then we will cut into the countryside. We will try to keep off major highways but there will be quite a bit of 100km speed limits which can't be avoided on the country roads.
This is a ride not to be missed.
