October 7, 2018 from 10am to 3:30pm

You'll be amazed to get there and back without a highway.  (Leaving aside Hanging Rock for a later event.) 170 Kms all up > See the Route Map here.However, I will probably change this route to make it more interesting. Suitable for all bikes and rider experience. It's especially good for new riders, or…See More

Hi Les. If you would like to borrow a bike to get you around in the meantime, I can lend you one of ours. We have plenty between us, and you can borrow my 300 to get around town, or do the Round The Bay. Really no problems this end. We have plenty of ride options here - and I can feel the pain of not being able to ride!
