VVMCCSA – future club rides & events


 The Tiddlers Run from the Kersbrook Oval, Glover Street, is on again this year.

Glover street is opposite the Servo on the main road and the oval is on the left at the edge of the town.

Please park vehicles and trailer in the end of the carpark past the main building.

The ride will start from the usual place at the oval and will leave at 10am after the riders briefing.

 It is a ride designed for the Veteran, Vintage, moped, scooters and lower powered machines BUT all bikes are of course welcomes.

Not any challenging hills, a gently rolling scenic ride at a leisurely pace through the lower Barossa Valley.

After leaving Kersbrook and heading north, a regroup & toilet stop will be made at Williamstown.

Then we will meander via Cockatoo Valley to the major stop at the Lyndoch Village Green. 

There are several bakeries and coffee shops close handy.

After refreshments and probably many tall stories, we will head back to Kersbrook via Williamstown.

Will be looking for a few corner marshals on the day.

The Community Club will again be serving a BBQ style lunch with salad, dessert and a drink.

The cost will be $10.00 for members and their partner with the V&V subsidising the balance.

 Could you please let us know by the General Meeting on Feb 14th if you require a meal.

 If you can’t make the meeting let Ian Hese know by midday Wednesday 15th.

 Need numbers for catering.

 If the ride is  cancelled due to forecast top of 36c please still attend.

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.
