Meeting point will be the southern entrance to the Balhannah Oval.

A right turn at Woodchester will take us up the range to the morning tea stop at the Wistow Bakery.

After the break we head south towards Strathalbyn BUT turnoff at Gemmells Road for a shortcut to

Macclesfield and straight across the intersection to continue on to Green hills Range and back up north to Hahndorf.

There will be another regroup at the Hahndorf Oval before skirting around Hahndorf and taking a few side roads before arriving back at Balhannah.

The ride is just over 100 kms with a ride time of 1 hr 30 minutes – this does not include the regroups/morning tea.

Mannum Ride Details 2021 – amended2

 Due to COVID we have had to cancel the normal 65th’s week tour that was due to have taken place. The Rally this year will be a part of the Festival Of Motorcycling.

The first Event of the Festival is our Club’s Swap Meet at Balhannah on the day before Sunday 3rd October.

The Rally will be centred around the Mary Anne Reserve at Mannum. This picturesque reserve is on the banks of the River Murray only a short walk from the main street.

It is suggested that you aim to arrive at the reserve by 10.00am. The Council will be closing a

section of the car park and the reserve for our use.

A display of bikes in the various eras will be set up at this time on the lawns. The bikes going on the rides can form up in the car park starting area.

At 11.00 am the first of two rides will depart. This ride is for the modern, quicker, or bigger capacity machines and is about 100kms in length.

A few minutes later the “main” ride will leave. This ride is a shorter route of about 75kms and is

designed for the slower Veteran, Vintage, moped, scooters, classics or those who just prefer to ride slower.

Both rides will cross the Murray River twice on the ferries and will arrive back at about 1.00pm. Portion of the ride is on a very scenic road that follows the river banks.

The local Lions Club will be providing a BBQ style lunch with refreshments. The riders who have entered the Festival can pay for their meal at entry and will be issued with a token. Those who have just come up to display their bikes or to just enjoy the day can purchase their lunch for $10. (cash would be preferred).

To enter the Rally you will need to book in on The Festival Of Motorcycling web site.  You can click on the logo on the Classic Owners web site, or use the link below.

Those members that don’t have the facility of booking online, there is available a manual booking form.

If you wish to use a manual form, please contact me and I will supply you with one.

To enter the 65th Rally only will cost $20, plus your meal of $10 if required.

The members who enter AND ride will get their entry fee of $20 refunded from our Club. You can of course get a week’s ticket and join in on all the other rides and events during the week.

Please contact me if you have any queries. See you there.
