Day one may be up to approx 560 km run up the Omeo Highway, then via Mt Hotham or Anglers Rest (The Blue Duck) up to Falls Creek.   I may vary the route between Omeo and Howmans Gap subject to conditions on the day but my preference for 2019 will via Mt Hotham.

Quite a sizeable group will be meeting us at Bruthen for a hopefully early lunch.

Overnight stay is at Howmans Gap YMCA (5 km from Falls Creek) in bunk rooms.   Full dinner, bed, bedding and towels followed by substantial breakfast is included in price of $98.50 per person payable direct in advance.

Great camaraderie in large dining room plus adjoining lounge.   Sit and exchange some disgraceful lies over a drink.  BYO drinks.

Day Two also has some great roads returning via Myrtleford, Oxley, Whitfield, Tolmie & Mansfield distance approximately 400 km.  This may vary depending on circumstances on the day.

Total distance for 2 days is approximately 960 kilometres.  I allow for approximately 7 hours riding and 2 hours of rest stops on day one.

THIS RIDE IS NOT FOR THE INEXPERIENCED OR EASILY FATIGUED.

This ride has now been an annual event since 1998.   .
