Its all starting to take shape ............ post ride's up soon ....................
Hi all, below are the planned rides for the Sat and Sunday of the Meet. The Sat Ride has been split into 2 rides, one longer ride to keep all the Die Hards Happy and a Shorter Run for those of you that just want to go for a lovely cruise along some of the most scenic roads in this part of the Country. I don't care what your riding Level or Skill levels are, the Short Sat ride and the Sunday ride is perfect for everyone. You will not be holding anyone up because we are not in a hurry to get anywhere ..... we have all the time in the world.
Each Group will have a lead rider and a Tail end Rider, we will speak about how this works on the morning of the rides.

Beautiful run down into Eden where we will head down the Wharf and try to get a Group pic then keep heading south to take Imlay Road over to Bombala where we will Fuel up and have lunch at the Globe Hotel (parking at the rear) approx 12 - 12.30 . After Lunch a cooshy 1.5hrs ride back to Merimbula Which now includes the Dubster Loop over Mt Dubster and a break at the Lookout ......
Excellent choices JR.
But I notice that you are missing a nice little diversion thru Candelo via Myrtle Mt Road, which comes off Mt Darragh rd. You use Darragh Mt Rd for each ride so a 12min diversion on a nice bit of recently sealed road (last 5 years) is worth while. Great photo opportunity at the Myrtle Mountain lookout particularly on ur last day. Just a thought for consideration.
I'm hoping to get down to Merrimbula for a catch up but there is a bit happening at the moment. Either way have a great time, except for the Hwy the roads down there should be relatively quiet this weekend.
Shiny side up!
Great rides! Looking forward to them. My pegs will be worn off and no heels on the boots after this set of rides.
Buy an adventure bike.... Won't be a issue then
No issue. Can get about 4-5000kms per boot. I was once told that you'rr not cornering unless you have at least a boot on the ground.
Will look at that Dubster ...... thank you ..........
Thanks Dubster .. I have included this into Sundays ride .... it looks awesome ..... only thing missing is you to lead us through there ........
If I can get my daughter moved into her new digs with no drama I will try and get down there for a day - It would be good to put faces to some of the commentry - I'm working on it!
See you soon brother
