Ride over Victoria's highest sealed road (Mt Hotham) cross the Tawonga Gap and stay overnight at Tawonga near Mt Beauty. 
I intend to keep this very simple and traditional by reverting to the late May date.  Everyone to arrange their own accommodation.
 I have booked accommodation at Mountain Creek Motel and plan to dine at their restaurant on the Saturday night.  They even have a drying room! 
Meal arrangements to be finalised closer to the time. 
This location also reduces the chances of getting iced in overnight.  
Please contact them direct and mention the Ulysses Booking for a better rate than advertised.  https://www.mountaincreekmotel.com.au  
Phone numbers are:   +61 3 5754 4247 | 0447 779 350 and their email is  info@mountaincreekmotel.com.au 
They have rooms which can accommodate up to 4 people in separate beds  - check the website and book rooms in your own groups direct.  

Return ride on Sunday via Myrtleford & Mansfield.   
Save the Date.  Please let me know if you're coming.  
If you've not been for a while come and do it again.  If you've never been come and try it.

  1. If you're coming please organise yourself and 
  2. Let me know you're coming

I already have a number of bookings including a couple from Gippsland and other members are already planning to meet us in Bruthen at lunch time. 
If you live in the north west of the State you could even ride up the Kiewa Valley and meet us at Tawonga enlightened
 

  1. If you're thinking of coming please book now and let me know.
  2. The venue will not be serving breakfast so I'm thinking of a 45 minute ride on the Sunday morning and having breakfast at a choice of bakeries in Myrtleford.
