There are three days and locations over the next months. You must bring your current log book, current registration and proof of membership for the 2022/2023 financial year.

Postal renewal

If you are unable to come to a Log Book Endorsement day it is possible to mail your log books to the club and have them returned to you via post.

This process was ramped up during the height of COVID isolations and does take a little longer due to the postal process, so get in early if you intend to ride your bike regularly. 

We require your current log book, current registration, proof of membership AND a self addressed and stamped return envelope.

HILLS RIDE – JUNE 19, 2022

The ride starts at the Pelican Plaza Shopping Centre on North East Road Ridgehaven.

Members will assemble from 0930hrs for a 1000hrs start.

The route will take us up North East Road to Range Road North where the roads will lead us through One Tree Hill, Humbug Scrub and onto Williamstown for a morning stop.

There are toilets and coffee shops are available at Williamstown.

The second part of the ride will take us to Springton and then through to Gumeracha, Lobethal and to the finish at the Cudlee Creek Hotel.

A hot coffee or something more substantial can be enjoyed at the hotel along with the welcome conversations that follow a winter’s ride in the Adelaide Hills.

Riders have a number of options to return to Adelaide from the

hotel after the ride and if the weather comes in during the ride,

there are two options to cut the ride short and return to the hotel.

Option one is to return to the Cudlee Creek Hotel from Williamstown after lunch.

Option two is to continue through Gumeracha to Cudlee Creek

rather than going through Lobethal.

The total rally distance is 110kms.
