SPORTIES T.T. REPORT

Great turnout of bikes and riders of very mixed breeds, ages and sizes, for our 2 rides at our end of year get together. The T.T ride saw us cover 80klm before returning to the clubrooms. A couple of small hiccups with the older bikes with only one coming home in the trailer due to tiredness of the mechanical components.

Thanks to all who attended in making it a very enjoyable and relaxed ride, and thanks to Jill Loone for driving the backup vehicle.

END OF YEAR BREAKUP

Hi all, On the 12/12/2020 our club breakup will be on at our clubrooms from around 12.30 onwards.

The plan is to have 2 rides running in the afternoon, returning to the clubrooms for refreshments and a bite.

One ride will be the Sporties T.T. (Tiddler Tour) /for the smaller capacity and older bikes and the other for newer and/or faster bikes & riders.

NEW LIFE MEMBERS

At our AGM, the Committee was pleased to announce 2 new life members. Congratulations to our newest Life Members, Mark Gross and Stuart Turner.

Both of these members have for many years had a great input into our club and helped to make it the success it is today and both are still involved with our progress into the future. It’s members like them that are our success formula.

SPORTIES T. T.

In a year like it has been for all of us, here is another change to our activities.

Instead of the TORQUAY T.T. , from now on it will be called the SPORTIES T.T. To be held on 12/12/2020 both starting and finishing from our clubrooms. Being on a Saturday it will be and afternoon ride, meeting from around 12.30pm with a departure time of 1.30pm. The same guidelines apply that you come along on the smallest capacity or oldest bike you have access to, but naturally everyone is welcome no matter what form of transport.

Being a TIDDLER TOUR it won’t be a fast or a long ride but it should be just as much fun as previous years. Just another reason to go for a ride really.

It will also incorporate our club end of year breakup, so those members who don’t wish to ride on the day can also be a part of the fun on the day, or just come along to the clubrooms for a few refreshments, a bit of tucker and a chat. Hope to see you all there.

MONDAY RED PLATE RIDES

Due to excess traffic around our previous starting point at Buckleys car park we have decided to now start from Barrabool Rd, just past the Macintyre walk bridge heading west towards Highton, on the right hand side of the road in the car park near the toilet block. Meet and start time remain the same at 9.00am and 9.30am respectively.
