Early Birds Breakfast Run, Sunday 18th January 2009

Organised by Ray Mann

Report by Brian Forth

Bright and early Sunday morning, 7.30am to be precise (no gentlemen’s hours here), weary members gathered at 344 The Parade, Norwood, then ventured into the hills via Norton Summit Road for Camelot Castle. We travelled via Norton Summit Road and various back roads to Camelot Castle for a hearty breakfast. The ride up Norton Summit Road was a challenge for many because there were hundreds of bicycle riders negotiating the hill at challenging speeds and passing was an experience. Some of those bicycle riders were even found riding near our destination and passing still proved a challenge. After breakfast a fair number of members ventured on to the Hahndorf annual swap meet where bikes were displayed in the middle of the oval and members wandered in search of that elusive motorcycle item.
