OXENBERRY WINERY RALLY—21st April 2024, 10.00am.

The Oxenberry Winery Rally will be held on Sunday 21st April 2024 starting at 10.00a.m.

Please gather at the winery – parking cars and trailers in the block to the left of the winery carpark.

Note, Oxenberry Winery is located on Kangarilla Road, McLaren Vale – NOT the Scarpantoni Winery at McLaren Flat! Each year we wave to a few who blindly ride past heading to Scarpantoni Winery premises. 

The route this year takes us on some of the most enjoyable roads in the southern area. The entire rally route is suited to older bikes although veterans may find some of the hills taxing.

 After the rally briefing we will head  left towards McLaren Flat turning before the township onto Blewitt Springs Road. We will follow the back roads to Kangarilla where we make the gentle climb to Meadows.

We do not stop at Meadows, however, as we do a short loop which takes us almost to Macclesfield, up Retort Hill and back to Meadows for morning tea/coffee.

Meadows has a couple of shops that serve tea, coffee and cakes.

We plan to stay there 30 minutes before returning to McLaren Vale.

After coffee we will head back towards Willunga, turning onto Brookman road and riding the full (though straight) length of the road through Kuitpo Forest. At the end of Brookman Road we find ourselves at Old Willunga Hill Road which we ride down to the township of Willunga. From Willunga we take the road back to McLaren Vale and Oxenberry Winery.

At Oxenberry our team should have the sausage sizzle ready for our arrival! Gold coin donation please.As usual we would greatly appreciate volunteers. 

This year we are looking for a trailer driver and willing marshals. On the outward run this time we need around ten marshals so please put your hand up and don a reflective vest – especially if you have not done so before.

Total rally distance is 85 kilometres.

For information regarding the rally please contact Ian Hese or myself. See you on the day,

Tony Morisset—Tour Leader

MENINGIE 2 DAY RALLY SAT & SUN MAY 18th & 19th 2024

This year we are doing something a little different for the 2 Day Rally.

We won’t be riding to an overnight stop and then riding home.  Riders will make their own way to

Medindie. There will be a ride around the Lakes on Saturday afternoon, with afternoon tea and then to the Hotel or a Restaurant for a group meal and socialising in the evening. Sunday morning will be a ride, including a morning tea stop, which will finish at Medindie in time to have lunch and then head for home.

You will be riding roads and seeing scenery, that you don’t usually have chance to see on Club runs.

Medindie is on the Princes Highway on the shores of Lake Albert.  It is about     1½hrs, 145kms travelling from The Toll Gate at the start of the SE Freeway, plus any comfort stops on the way.

Accommodation is at the Caravan Park, Hotel or Motel.  Contact details in next month’s Smoke Signal for you to book your accommodation.  You may wish to go down the day before or stay longer. Ian Hese

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.
