65th Anniversary Rally

Due to the presence of Covid-19 in Australia and the ongoing instances of Community Transmissions, we have decided to postpone the 65th Anniversary Rally.

Many entrants come from interstate and given the propensity for State Governments to lock borders with little notice, travellers are very reticent to make commitments in the current climate.  The possibility of quarantine, at very short notice, will affect our numbers and may result in a loss of deposits. As we need accurate numbers to secure accommodation, merchandise and food requirements, the lack of confidence to make travel plans while Covid is still around, will affect our ability to deliver an inclusive rally, so we have chosen to defer.

With a review of the situation later on in the year, we can only hope that this will be presented in 2022.

regards – Mike Canty, Chairperson of 65th Anniversary Committee

the rally route

Breakfast ride – Sunday 17 January 2021.                                                  Cudlee Creek Tavern is situated on the Gorge Road next to the camping ground opposite the Gorge Wildlife park about 1km towards the city from the Cafe we often go to. It is a motorcycle friendly country pub that’s not 5 star but serves good food.

Plan to be there from 0900 to eat served buffet breakfast from 0930.

Full Cost is $15 subsidised by $5 from VVMCC, therefore it will cost member $10.00 and partners $10.00.

There is plenty of space for trailer parking, which makes a good base for a Veteran and small bike flat ride to say Mt Pleasant with a longer ride planned for the larger and more modern machinery.

The ride will start after members have had breakfast. Re-group locations to be decided on the day.

The route is suitable for most bikes, just not veterans, but small bikes and veterans.

I checked out the parking today and there is unlimited space available for trailers in the tavern carpark, I feel we can promote the ride as a Veteran suitable event with a ride out on the Gorge Rd towards Mt Pleasant, flat going.

Another thought to look into is that the Gorge wildlife park is opposite the Tavern, somewhere those not riding and riders family members can spend a few hours during the ride.

Dave Holbrook & Brett Mitchell – Your tour beloved tour guides.

The buffet will include, Eggs , bacon, sausages, toast, fried tomato, baked beans , pancakes, hash browns and mushrooms.
