Merry Christmas to members and friends.
Christmas hills ride – Melba’s Chocolate Factory Run, Saturday 15th December.

this is an excuse for Christmas.

This ride will leave at 10am from MELBA’S CHOCOLATE FACTORY, Henry Street WOODSIDE. For those that are trailering their bikes could you please park on the dirt opposite MELBA’S by the high fence or down the very back of the main car park, out of the way of the other visitors.

After the usual chin wag, admiring bikes, ride briefing and the group photo, we will go into the main street of Woodside and turn off and head out to the township of Harrogate.

Just after Harrogate we will travel along only 1(one)km of very good, non-rocky, non-corrugated unsealed road, to re-join the bitumen.

After meandering out through Bruckunga we will stop at Nairne.  Coffee, drinks, snacks, petrol and of course the all important toilet will all be available.  The tall stories are to be supplied by you.

With full tummies and empty bladders the next part of the ride will take us through Mt. Barker, Echunga to Verdun and meander to Balhannah and back to the finish at MELBA’S.

The distance of the ride is approx. 98kms and fuel is available, if needed, at the Nairne stop and at Woodside before and after the ride.

The roads are generally quiet back roads or not too busy main roads with mostly 80kph limits.  There are no real steep pinches. Plenty of rolling hills and sweeping corners and good scenery to enjoy.  A relaxing ride to finish the year before the Festive Season hits.

This ride is two weekends before Xmas so it’s a good chance to stock up with chocolate delights from MELBA’S and don’t forget the Cheese shop next door.

I will of course be needing some Corner Marshals on the day.

Also will need someone to tow the Club trailer, in case of breakdowns, which of course you will be reimbursed $60 towards the fuel cost or could get a lot of choccies for that.

If you wish to offer your services for trailer or marshal duties or have any other questions please contact me. Ian HESE
