    ***TRIP OPTION FOR SYDNEY,CENTRAL COAST AND SOUTH COAST RIDERS TRAVELLING TO MERRIMBULA***
    Hi guys and girls.
    National meet is 3 DAYS away now so I'm planning the best route option to get there, leaving on the Friday morning the 25th.

    Meeting at the Coles Express on Appin Rd, St Helens from 7.30-8.00. It will be tanks full and stands up at 8.30 for a trip along the Princes Hwy.

    Arrive at South Nowra approx. 10.00-10.15 for a 1/2hr break. Coffee and fuel.

    Leave at 10.45 for Batemans Bay where we will stop for lunch. Arriving approx. 12.15.
    We will stop on the left just over the bridge.
    There’s a fish and chip shop there and takeaway burgers. Also a Maccas further up the road if that’s your preference.

    As you finish lunch, head along to the Caltex for fuel up the road where we will all congregate before heading off again at approx. 1.15-1.30.

    Next stop Merimbula where we should arrive between 3.30-4.00

    If you want to join us for the trip down, comment below.
    Or if you want to meet along the way, let me know and we will estimate a time we'll pass you so you can tag along.
    Bring on the National Meet Merimbula.....WOOHOO

    Hi Chops, If I could recommend a diversion that gets you off the Princes Hwy and will get you into Merimbula via a much more scenic and biker friendly road, I hate the trucks and weekend holiday driver on the Hwy and by the time you get there you will have put up with a lot of that sort of bullshit.. Take the turn off into Bermagui and follow the Sapphire Coast Rd all the way into Merimbula, it will bring you into Merimbula a couple of hundred metres from your destination with a smile on ur face and only takes 10 minutes longer. Just a thought. Keep the shiny side up!

    Ok ladies and gents. There’s a slight change to the schedule for the ride down.
    Although fuel range might be ok from St Helens Park to Batemans Bay, 3hrs in the saddle might be a bit long for some. So read my original post to catch up on the changes.
    Cheers.
