Club Permit Scheme Information

First let me thank Geoff Wiliams (who is the Ulysses Club liaison person with Vic Roads for this scheme) for the years of work he has put into making this scheme available to members.  An article has now been published in the May 2013 Riding On Magazine       See Updates to 2016 in comments below

 

Ride to Yarck 20 August 2017

A small but very willing group ignored the recent wet weather and overnight cold and assembled at Kalkallo for Vince’s ride to Yarck and we were glad we did.   The weather was clear and calm which made it perfect for riding.   Ian and Richard from Macedon Ranges joined us to make a total group of eight.  Rumour has it a couple of “kiwis” added to the diversity of attendees and Richard volunteered to do tail end duties.  Bike brand representation was much smaller than usual but still very interesting; BMW was represented by two K1600 G

Alf's Ride to Drouin 11 June 2017

Fifteen people assembled at Dandenong on a near perfect winter’s day for Alf’s ride to Drouin. 

Samuel readily volunteered to do tail end duties and we were all so busy enjoying general camaraderie

2017 AGM Journey

I had planned a four day circuitous ride which involved visiting friends in Wodonga, Sydney and Nowendoc before arriving at Wauchope around noon on Monday, 22 May.  Put plainly, the weather forecasts for the Friday and Saturday were simply ghastly, so I simplified my plan.  I left Montrose mid afternoon on the Friday and got some light drizzle as I rode the Black Spur

MELBURNIANS ASKED TO TAKE PART IN VACCINATION TRIAL AGAINST HEART DISEASE/STROKE

Greg has asked me to post this on the website regarding reserach on heart disease Stroke:

Melburnians are taking part in a world first trial that could see a simple one-off vaccination protect against heart attack and stroke.

The trial, which started late last year, aims to determine whether the pneumococcal vaccine can reduce the risk of heart attacks and stroke by up to 20 per cent. Observational studies indicate the injection can lead to a 17% protection against cardiovascular disease, but this is the first large scale study to be conducted.
