VVMCCSA – future club rides & event


SAT SUN MAY 18th/19th 2024

For something different this year, the Rally will be based at the Lakes Township of Meningie, an area we have not visited before.  You will need to arrange your own accommodation and there are some suggestions below. 

It will take you about 1 ¾ hours travelling time from the Old Toll Gate, up the Freeway and turning off just after Tailem Bend.  More of course if you make some stops on the way. Distance is about 145kms from the Old Toll Gate.

At 1.00pm Saturday afternoon, the ride will leave from the Lions Federation Park, on the shores of Lake Albert, in the main street.

This ride will travel around the Lakes, crossing a ferry and have a small break about ½ way through. A total distance of approximately 90kms.  The course is suitable for the Veteran/Vintage/Tiddlers as well, no big hills and mostly quiet roads. We should be back at Meningie about 4.00pm. Saturday night the Hotel is expecting us for a meal.

Sundays ride is to start at 9.30am, from the same place in the main street.

We will head across to Coonalpyn and then down to Tintinara for a refreshment break at the United Roadhouse.  From there we travel along Woods Well Road  to Coorong and back to Meningie.  A total distance of 170kms, arriving back in time for lunch, before making your own way home.

The slower bikes can head straight down the Princes Highway towards Coorong and can turn around when they meet the main group, or earlier if they wish.  This means that they will have the services of the trailer if needed.  40-80kms.

Will be looking for someone to tow the trailer, so please contact me to volunteer.

If you are going would please let me know so as I know how many to expect.

Corner Marshal information.

For members desiring to be a corner marshal on a club ride, please read this corner marshal duties about the do and don’ts. But you need to be trained and qualified to perform this important position.

One of advantages of being a corner Marshall is to to watch and see members riding towards you, with the awesome sound of their motorcycle, along with clashing of gears as that veteran and vintage motorcycle slowly gaining speed as they ride on. When the back up trailer arrives, you then can join the ride.
