NOTE SPECIAL START TIME 9AM at Ardeer    smiley

Mike is taking us on a ride with a difference. The early start is to enable the ride to reach Lake Goldsmith by around midday. The Lake Goldsmith Steam Rally is on there that day with vintage steam engines, cars and we are told motorbikes. We will spend a couple of hours looking at the exhibitions and return home as a group via a different route.

The ride up goes through Meredith which is the likely morning tea stop and then over roads we have not ridden on for years, if ever, to Lake Goldsmith.

The weather should be pretty good by early November and we have a ride with an interesting destination so please support Mike and join the ride if possible.
