Sunday, 7th February 2021 13th Annual Grampians “Ride to Remember”.
The spectacular 200km Ride is open to all licensed motorcycle enthusiasts.
The Ride will start from Ararat travelling the rural countryside to the fringes of the magnificent Grampians including the townships of Moyston, Pomonal then onto Halls Gap and a stunning ride through the
National Park to Dunkeld and back via Glenthompson, Wickliffe, Willaura, Maroona to Ararat. Click here to view the Ride Route 2021 or you can check out https://remember.org.au/events/other-events/
22-28TH March Ulysses National Rally is still planned for Mandurah Western Australia.
I have great memories of the last trek across the Nullarbor to the Albany AGM. This trip takes a bit of planning – fuel stops organised, accommodation, etc. And do not forget you won’t be the only ones travelling so accommodation does get tight. SA/WA currently haven’t opened their borders, but fingers crossed they do in time for the event. Given that we have been so confined in 2020 – it will be great to get out into such open spaces as offered on this trip.
