With the support of our commercial providers - Mansfield Holiday Park, Mansfield Golf Club and Dennis Tucker entertainment we have kept our bookings open in the hope that this years Odyssey might be able to be run. However it has now become clear that this is unreasonably optimistic and the clearing of the Covid19 pandemic is too slow to allow this event to go ahead.
So the Melbourne Branch Odyssey for 2020 is cancelled.
On a more positive note:

  • The date for the Odyssey in 2021 will be the Friday 15th to Sunday 17th October 2021. At this early stage we expect to follow the same format as 2019, Friday night BBQ informal social, Saturday morning ride, Saturday evening dinner and as much local tourism as you can fit in between!
  • We are also hoping to run a ride to Mansfield in the first half of the year in 2021 - prossibly (that's somewhere between possibly and probably!) a 2 or 3 day ride. Keep an eye out for announcements (early in the new year) on this.

For those who booked accommodation in Mansfield for this years event, please do confirm your individual cancellations - we are in the process of advising the Holiday Park and others of the cancellation but please confirm your individual bookings/cancellations. 

Edit 10/9/20:  Dates for 2021 to align with actual calendar dates!
