September Club Rides

21 Sep
Rod Bailey’s Shed

For this month’s ride we tried something a little different. Thanks to Lew Hylton, we were invited to view a private mini museum of magnificent motorcycles. After a quick ride through the hills we are welcomed by the owners Rod and Allison with a fantastic spread of coffee and cakes before we viewed the collection of great bikes. Rod gave us a run down on each of the bikes and then after a little cajoling he started the Ariel square four and what a magnificent sound that was. (Look for Peter Perry’s post on “Classics at Hart” Facebook site to hear it running.) After a well spent two hours checking out the bikes some of us headed off to Mt. Pleasant for lunch then home.

Collingrove Hill Climb
Part two of our monthly ride was two weeks later and a visit to the Collingrove Hill Climb, where we watched competitors blasting up the track on everything from an electric bike, a Honda Grom to 70 year old Manx Norton’s. Some of us made the trek to the top of the hill to view the track from there while others stayed around the start line to watch the bikes launch off the line, some of them quite spectacularly with the front wheel pointing to the sky.
 
Although it was rather cool the sun was out and it was a most enjoyable way to spend the day with fellow enthusiasts.

Ride to Milang -Take 2

9 Aug

After last month’s ride to Milang railway museum being aborted because of the rain this month’s ride wasn’t looking good with mist and rain in the hills. We only had only six riders for this months ride but once we cleared the hills the sun was shining and we were on our way. After a short break for coffee at Meadows Alan decided to head home. The remaining five of us then set off and criss-crossed the Peninsula until we were forced to retrace our route at Currency Creek with the road flooded and an expensive Mercedes stranded in the flooded road.

When we finally made it to the museum we were treated with tea and scones in the diner then a guided tour of all the exhibits.This museum is well worth a visit if you are looking for somewhere to go for a Sunday ride.
