Event Description

If you would like to join us for a 2-day ride to Albury and back to meet up with the Sydney vesparados you will need to mark you attendance a.s.a.p. so we can book accommodation.

Departure Point

We will be meeting from 8am departing at 9am SHARP Thursday 18 January from Santos Cafe, 2/795-801 Plenty Rd, South Morang. We will use a back road route which was part of the Ned Kelly Ride (off the Hume Highway) to Albury. The Sydney crew are aiming to reach Holbrook for the night.

After an overnight stay in Albury, the Melbourne riders will meet up with our Sydney visitors early Friday morning 19 January and escort them back to Melbourne departing at 9am. The scenic return route is via Beechworth and Alexandra.

This 2-day ride will be approx 800km round trip through beautiful countryside. It will be an enjoyable event however participants must be experienced riders with enough stamina for long hours in the saddle as well as a reliable scooter capable of speeds up to 100kms per hour. Further details to follow but we need your commitment now to book as it falls during school holidays.

Are you ready to ride across the Murray?

Albury meeting point for Sydney riders. Turn off the Hume Highway to Albury city centre. Proceed down Dean Street ( Albury’s main street ). Towards the end of the shopping strip diagonally opposite the Botanical Gardens there is a Caltex service station on the right (north) side of the road. 678 Dean Street corner of Creek Street. Refuel and assemble here ready for departure.

I have made arrangements for our accommodation at a motel a few doors down from yours.

Hi everyone meeting in South Morang from 8am departing at 9am SHARP from Santos Cafe and please google it as you have to enter via the car park off the main road. Please have a big breakfast and bring snacks. We have a lot of ground to cover and we can’t be held up.

Arrive with a full tank, there is a petrol station just north of the Commercial Hotel.

I will be looking at the accommodation immediately on our return as I don’t think what I have booked will work so if there is anyone else who wants to join us please make sure you have marked your attendance before the 13 January. Otherwise you will have to book your own accommodation.

The final details will be put up on Sunday 14 January so please check.

Thanks Julie

Jeff the meeting point is in the above details. Look at the Ned Kelly ride event with the actual details of the venue.  David and Julie will have returned from their trips a week or two before hand so if you need further info they will be able to answer for you. Pam

Hi Julie, would love to go along.  Also, Brett just purchased his new Vespa and is keen to come along too.  Is accommodation OK? We are happy with either our own room or share.

I’m on board. Looking forward to the numb bum.

I have reserved rooms at the Albury Garden Court Motel situated at 426 David St. just off the Hume Freeway.  1 Dble, 1 Twin and 1 Family so a total of 8 persons.  It is very comfortable and the rooms are apparently spacious so OK for sharing and it has a salt water swimming pool which will be nice to jump into after our ride.  If you want to come along please let me know a.s.a.p.
