We had very mild weather in the fortnight leading up to the annual Ice Run and despite the fact that many were away in Alice Springs, or still returning, we ended up with 36 people attending this year’s ride. Seventeen of us met at Dandenong and got under way promptly at 8.00am on Saturday 24 May in mild conditions with clouds looming further to the south and Samuel performing tail end duties. We did a “transport” run along the Monash Freeway for about 80 km past
Just back from Alice Springs after almost 2 weeks away.
As with most AGM's, the journey in getting there and back is often the most exciting part.
