John Cook's Alpine Tour 2018

Pics to follow but.......

A few videos from the Ulysses Melbourne Alpine Tour - possibly better named the Alpine Swim!! Despite serious rain, it was a lot of fun for Peter Gleason and I. On the whole, my wet weather gear did a fairly good job!! Must have grown webbed feet in the rain when I was riding in France last year. One of these in particular shows the Ulysses "corner marking" system, and the uncertainty of people marking corners when Tail End Charlie isn't who you think he is!!!

I’m not going to talk about the obvious things which cause most of the deaths and serious injuries on our roads namely driving whilst impaired (by alcohol, drugs or fatigue) driving while distracted (e.g. texting) or deliberate risk taking such as inappropriate speed and overtaking when unsafe etc.  All I can say is don’t do those things and do your very best to avoid the idiots doing so.

Trail / Dirt Bike riding

Hi all, 

I recently picked up a Suzuki DRZ400E and am now doing single track/forest riding with a group of older guys.

If any Ulysses members are interested in joining us on our monthly trail rides, send me a message for details.

Each month we organise a ride to a different forest/location and ride around single trails etc. Nothing to fast.

Aimed at smaller dirt/adventure bikes with knobbie tires a must.
