The Snowy Ride 2019

Submitted by rogerfoot1 on Fri, 08/11/2019 - 7:28pm

For the start of The Snowy Ride 2019 six hardy riders, plus one, assembled at Yea at 8.00 am on the Thursday before Melbourne Cup Day. The six who were travelling “the classic route” were John Cook (Honda ST1300), Steve Bailes (BMW F800GT), Stewart Tepe (Honda Valkyrie), Shane Dwyer (BMW1200GS), Phil McMillan (BMW800GS) and Roger Foot (BMW K1300S). We were joined for a quick chat by Sam Bateman (Kawasaki Ninja 1000) who was riding a different route a little later, and was to be joined by Les Cox (Yamaha FJR1300) after breakfast.

With a week of true winter weather and near-record snowfalls this ride was always going to separate the men from the boys, or should that read the sheep from the goats?  The day dawned with photos sent from friends in the Woodend and Kyneton districts, the planned route for the ride, showing snow on their paddocks. So it was on with the thermals and suit liners and off to see if anyone was silly enough to come along!
