Ride and Ruffit Rally 2018

We have been invited by the Bendigo Historic Motorcycle Club to a weekend at their Llanelly club rooms, (VicRoads Ref 43 F5), 4 kms west of Newbridge, on Sat 13th and Sun 14th October. (Please note date change as previous date clashes with the Moto GP). The club rooms are a converted historic school situated on spacious, grassed grounds.

Participants can bring their tent, swag, sleeping bags etc and sleep in the club rooms, in the supplied marquees, under a tree, under the stars etc. There is plenty of space for your car, ute, caravan, etc. There are water, toilet and shower facilities.

The BHMCC will provide all meals which includes lunch on Saturday, Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast, Sunday lunch and all the tea, coffee, biscuits etc that you care to have. All this for the total cost of just $70 per person.  I must say that that the meals provided in previous years have been fantastic and I’m sure this time will be no exception.

If you don’t want to ‘ruffit’ the nearest motels are in Dunolly and Bridgewater Fuel is not available at Llanelly or Newbridge but is available at Bridgewater 20kms NE, Inglewood 20kms N, Dunolly 20kms SW

Meet at the BP servo outbound, 1789 Western Freeway, Rockbank, (Mel Ref: 355 D12). 8.30am for 9.00am start.
We will travel via Ballan and Daylesford with morning tea at Newstead. Top up with fuel at Maldon then arriving at Llanelly 12 – 12.30pm. Total distance 169 kms.

The Bendigo club will then supply lunch and afterwards we will go on a short ride of 2-3 hours of places of interest in the area.

After Saturday dinner we will enjoy an evening of socialising (and perhaps some liquid refreshment) around the camp fire.

After breakfast we will again be escorted on a short ride of 2 hours around the local area.  Lunch will again be supplied at Llanelly and we will depart around 1.00 pm for the ride home.

We will return via Newbridge, Maldon, Harcourt, Woodend then Gisborne (possibly stopping here for coffee) and dispersing from here. Total distance of 163kms.

This is a very relaxed rally, with Saturday night an especially enjoyable time chatting around the camp fire.

Those people wishing to make their own way to Llanelly should arrive by 12.00 pm for lunch.

$70 per person will be collected at Llanelly.

Those intending to come please notify Graham Boulter on 0407769295 or email vpres@cmccv.org.au  by Sunday 13th October so catering arrangements can be finalised.
