65th Anniversary’s 7 day of riding has been cancelled – BUT – VVMCCSA will have a 1 day ride – at Mannum on Monday 4th October 2021, this is our day ride during the Festival of Motorcycling week events.

 65th Anniversary Rally



We gather at the Balhannah Oval for a 10am start.

Leaving the oval, we go along Greenhill Road and turn down Rangeview Drive. Then take the Carey Gully Road down to Bridgewater and turn right to arrive in Aldgate. We then take Euston Road, along by the train line and after a couple of turns end up on Heathfield Road, where there will be a regroup.

Continue on Heathfield Road which crosses Longwood Road and becomes Scott Creek Road. Then onto Cherry Gardens Road. We follow down the hill to get to Clarendon and then along to Meadows. This section will have steeper climbs, descents, hills, corners and some very nice scenery, particularly if the autumn leaves are out.

At Meadows we will have break for a cuppa, chin wag, leg stretch and also meet with the riders on the short cut route.

Then take the Paris Creek Road through the outskirts of Strathalbyn, before taking the main road straight up to Wistow.  Then onto Paech Road and around the back of Mt Barker to Bald Hills for another regroup near the wetlands. Continue along Bald Hills Tunnel under the freeway.

Here we turn left and then turn right at Little Hampton and back to the Balhannah Oval, probably just after 1pm.  This section is not as steep, with more rolling hills, sweeping corners and still good scenery.

The flat tankers and lower powered bikes may return the way they came to Meadows, with a total distance of 60kms approx.  The total distance of the main ride is approx. 110 kms.

Any Veteran or other lower powered bikes may follow Ian Hese to Meadows through Verdun, bypassing

Hahndorf on the River Road to Echunga and onto Meadows.

They can return the same way (60kms  total) or follow the main route back to Balhannah (85kms total).

Will need 8 corner marshals on the day, as well as someone to tow the recovery trailer for the usual $60 towards running expenses. 

Please contact Ian Hese (0409 083 436) if you can do the trailer duties.

 2021 National Veteran Motorcycle Rally

The Committee now invites you to submit your ENTRY (attached) and get ready to join in the fun.

All systems are go and planning continues for a five day hub rally based in the tall timber town of Manjimup, WA, from 17-22 OCT 2021.

The 2021 NVMR in Manjimup has a focus on the riding and camaraderie that goes hand in hand with a good day out on two wheels.  The routes are all through hilly forested country (we don’t think they’re as big as the Tassie hills) and Lunch stops are in small country towns.  Covid 19 has affected our planning for meal venues in particular so ther will be three lunch stops where you will take your pick of local eateries and buy you own lunch.

Hopefully by now you have chosen your accommodation, but we do ask that you let us know here you will be staying and get your booking confirmed soon.  The Rally HQ will be at the Tigers Football Club on the edge of Manjimup which offers us some excellent facilities.  There will be morning teas and evening meals available here as well as a bar open each evening, undercover areas, and a small workshop.  On the Wednesday afternoon there will be a Swap Meet and some other activities to keep you busy at the clubrooms, so we hope you’ll join in.

This year the host club is the Indian Harley Club (Bunbury) Inc..  The IHC invites you to stay on and join in the celebration of their 50h Anniversary at a rally the following weekend 30-31 OCT in Bunbury, WA (approx.. 130km north of Manjimup)
