It's not the destination but the experience!  Let's see how many Vespa we can get out for a short celebratory mass return ride to Glenrowan. 100?

Dress up your Vespa in its finest - banners and pennants - and join a procession led by the VCoA club Presidents who'll set a slow steady pace for all riders.

We understand that many will be packing, checking out, and planning rides home, but please join us for this short good-bye ride if you can.

Assemble from 7.30 AM, Reid St, around Pinsent Hotel and Aldi Car Park. Departing 8.00 AM sharp.  MAP

We'll take a fairly direct route with few corners given the expected ride size, stop in Glenrowan for the ubiquitous Big Ned photo shoot, arriving back in Wang at 9 AM for breakfast.
