NB Not the usual Officer Start Point
Yes - you read correctly this is the 25th anniversary of annual autumn alpine run which started life as the “Autumn Ice Run in May 1998.
After experimenting with a traditional run in May 2021 (which was fun but ….), I decided to try and make it safer and give us more daylight by going at the end of March and before school holidays – Easter etc.

Ride Leader - John Cook 0419 599 530
Depart Early 0800 from Outbound at Officer NB on the Freeway east of Berwick, not the usual Officer start point.
Ride over Victoria's highest sealed road (Mt Hotham) cross the Tawonga Gap and stay overnight at Tawonga near Mt Beauty.
While keeping things very simple and traditional,
I intend to vary the route a bit this year and head south of the highway to Sale for the morning refreshment stop.
I have also discovered some quite interesting sealed side roads between Bruthen and Omeo so I plan on using those to avoid some of the bumps and roadworks presently on the Great Alpine Road.
Everyone to arrange their own accommodation.
I have booked accommodation at Mountain Creek Motel, Tawonga and plan to dine at their restaurant on the Saturday night. They even have a drying room!
They have a fully licensed restaurant on site
Please contact them direct and mention the Ulysses Booking for a better rate than advertised.
