This ride has now been organised thanks to Dave Stewart who has volunteered to put it together.
The ride will again start from our clubrooms at 45 Riversdale Rd Newtown, meeting at 9.00am for a 9.30 start. The ride will have a Light House theme as we will be doing a circuit around some of the local ones, finishing with snack & chat at Aireys Inlet. From there you choose your own way home or on for a longer ride. Not being a really long ride, hopefully we will see a few more older or special bikes along with us. See you there. Mal
WELL, The weather wasn’t kind to us but 7 hearty souls & 1 driver turned up for a rather windy & wet ride to Queenscliff for a coffee. Thanks to Dave for organising the ride and gathering some historical info on the lighthouses in the area. It was decided to cut the ride short this time and save it for another day due to the weather. That’s what is good with our club, we can vary what we do to suit our members needs on the day. My belief is we ride bikes to have fun and if it’s not fun day, save it until you can enjoy it.
We now have available cast pewter club badges for your riding jackets and screen printed polo shirts and wind cheaters which will be available for purchase at all meetings. At the moment they are in limited numbers so it is advisable to get in early if you want them.
Thanks to Jim (V Pres) for organising the ride to the Moto Bean Cafe at Malmsbury which was enjoyed by the 19 riders who attended. A bit cool when we left the clubrooms, but a hot coffee at Ballan and all was good. Then on through Trentham on our way to the cafe. A couple of riders went different ways but all arrived safely to enjoy the good food on offer. After lunch we went our different ways on the ride home. In all a good day’s ride was had by all. It was nice to see a few new members and some different faces come along and enjoy the friendship our club has to offer.
How quick it comes around again to our monthly ride on the 2nd Sunday of the month.
In June we have Jim (Vice President) who has stepped up and organised a ride to the “Moto Bean Cafe” at Malmsbury, meeting at our clubrooms at 9.00am for a 9.30 departure.
So if you are free and feel like a good ride, come along and support Jim and the club in general. Remember these rides are organised by members for members.
Hope to see you there.
PS. Looking for someone to put their hand up to organise the July ride.
With it being Mothers Day and the weather looking slightly threatening we were not sure how many would front for the ride, however we finished up with 8 riders on the day with a mixture of older and modern bikes.
We headed out through Ceres, Pollocksford, Bannockburn, Russells Bridge, Maude then on to Anakie to the “Old Workshop” for a morning coffee and cake or scones. Nice to have a warm up by the wood heater, fantastic coffee and brilliant service by the friendly staff. Would thoroughly recommend it as a stop over on another ride.
Returned home in time for Mothers Day lunch, a short ride but very enjoyable.
Yeah I know it,s Mother’s Day, but we are having a morning ride for anyone who is interested in one.
Leaving our clubrooms in Riversdale Rd at 9.30am for about an hours ride, finishing at “The Old Workshop” cafe at Anakie for a coffee & snack, then back home by lunchtime.
All welcome, red plate or not, bike or car, feel free to join in.
Hope to see some of you there. Mal.
The general meeting on Tuesday 8th May, being the first meeting of the month, will again kick off with a free BBQ starting from 6.30pm for a get together and chat prior to the general meeting which will be starting around 8.00pm. See you there.
