Midweek Rides

This issue of midweek rides was again raised during discussions on Sunday's ride

Put simply, I am all for having midweek rides and there is absolutely no reason that we cannot have them as frequently as members may want.

Pat and participating members do a great job of filling the Sunday ride calendar and that is great.

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

The late Ron Blomley had offered to lead the ride and had actually done a 400 kilometre reconnaissance on Sunday 20 August in preparation.   Unfortunately Ron passed away (at home) the very next day and this ride morphed into a tribute / farewell ride in Ron’s memory.  Our branch president Greg Rees took over as ride leader.

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

2017 Autumn Ice Run

Ride Report – 2017 Ulysses Melbourne Ice Run

“Talisker” - (from the Scottish)  - land of the wooded cliff and sloping hills, the secluded isle, the captivating land mass that becomes the navigator’s beacon”.

Thus begins this tale……

“ Master Helmsman, how shall we navigate?  Where lieth the Talisker?”  “Captain, I know of not, for she be veiled in a cloak of fog….”

Andy Strapz - 20th Anniversary 2017

Twenty years ago I was sitting in my shed and cursing a secondhand sewing machine as I learnt to use it to convert a “Eureka” moment into something useful. A few weeks later I stood at a swap meet in Goulburn next to a chunk of plywood with a few packs of Strapz pinned to it. I never dreamed this anniversary would roll around.
