Fathers' Day in the Rain

I had volunteered to lead the ride on Father's Day quite some time ago.

Ride to Maryanne and Hank Tigges’ home at Scarsdale

Maryanne and Hank had very kindly offered to host lunch at their rural property south of Ballarat at the conclusion of the branch ride on Sunday, 27 August 2017

Greg’s 13th August 2017 Peninsula Ride

On possibly the nicest winter day in a long time, Greg Gleason led a group of 12 riders down the Peninsula for 206km of riding pleasure.  It was good to welcome Brett to only his second Ulysses ride – from the Werribee area, he covered a lot of ground to share the ride with us.
