Sunday 6th January
Mirboo North via Grand Ridge Road

Ben Warden (tbc) leading
10am Officer South BP
Ride will not suit inexperienced riders; not recommended for first time Club riders.

This ride suits sports bikes - it strings together the best roads in Central Gippsland. First stop Korumburra Bakery via Drouin if you miss the start. (96 km) Then up through Arawata (3 km of dirt) and Leongatha along endless twisty roads looking for the perfect sweeper, touching on the Grand Ridge Road with spectacular views of rugged mountains and glimpses of the sea. We'll visit Limonite and travel to the end of the Grand Ridge Road bitumen before returning to Boolarra South.

Mirboo North bakery for lunch pre-ceded by fuel at the top servo. (118km) Then we'll do a loop down to Hallston and back to Mirboo North before pressing on to the famous Thorpdale corner sequence and Trafalgar for fuel. (88km) The Hallston loop offers the chance to skip 60 km of twisties and have a breather for 35 minutes before rejoining the main group. Or jump on the back of your partner's bike.

The Committee has booked accommodation at the NSW Sport and Recreation Centre in Jindabyne. This is lodge style accommodation with 2 beds per room (7 rooms) with shared bathroom facilities, and a large kitchen/living area with a big screen TV. We have stayed eight times before and are so impressed with the cost, quality and food, we keep coming back.

The Australia Day holiday falls on Friday 26th of January. Given the distances involved (600km plus every day), a four day weekend allows us to take full advantage of the great location.

The plan is to ride up on Friday, ride around the Snowy Mountains Saturday and Sunday and return to Melbourne on Monday. This means three nights accommodation. You'll need to take annual leave for the Monday.

Typically temperatures are in the high 30's at this time of year, but at this altitude the temperatures will be around 5 degrees cooler making for ideal riding conditions.

As usual, this special event is offered on a strictly first come, first served basis. A full payment of $131 is required, payable in to the Club bank account. The deposit buys three nights accommodation and the first night's meal. If you wish to stay less than three nights then you may choose to organise others to use the nights you are not using. It costs $131 no matter how many nights you stay.

A BBQ pack is being offered for the first night which includes sausages, steaks snd green salads. This allows us to eat as early or late as we wish on our own private back patio area.

All you need is your toothbrush, a change of clothes and near new tyres. Street legal, race replica tyres will not last much more than two days so regular road tyres are a more sensible option, unless you are prepared to change them.

The route for Day 1 is via Orbost and Delegate on the Bonang Highway. Brilliant roads for the whole weekend. Check out the Club Magazine for February 2011-2018 in the Members area.

Shorter Day rides will be organised for Days 2 and 3. A rest day is an option. Home will be via the way we came - great roads and relatively "safe".

This ride will not suit inexperienced riders; it is for Members only.

Places are limited to 14 people in the lodge. First in best dressed. The cost is sensational value: 3 nights accommodation and a substantial meal for $131 (tbc).

Email the Secretary or Treasurer your e-bank transaction receipt to confirm your place.

Cancellation Policy: as the Club has to pay up front, the full and final amount is required. If you pull out, then you need to find a replacement to get your money back. Otherwise, no refunds.

Alternative Accommodation: there are two pubs in Jindabyne, a caravan park (cabins, on site vans, etc) and numerous motel options.
If there is a demand, we will book additonal units at the NSW Sport and Recretation Centre - at a slightly higher rate. These are excellent.
