Our club is again heavily involved in the organisation of this year’s festival, which runs for 9 days from October 1st – 9th. The club is hosting 3 events and hopes to see many of our members participate in them.
Club member, Peter Perry, has devised a ‘Painted Silos Tour’ for the opening day – Saturday 1st October. These tour rides are for those who prefer their motorcycling rides just that little bit longer. There are 2 rides: The Tour Ride 404 kms and the longer Endurance Ride 670 kms.
Day 5 Thursday October 5th, our club is hosting the Barossa Valley ride. A ride leader has been appointed, but we still need volunteers to help marshall the course. The SA Adventure Bike Riders have also arranged a ride, which should appeal to off-road riders, both rides meeting for lunch at the Vine Inn, Nuriootpa.
The final event of the festival on October 8th & 9th is Classics at Hart to be held at Harts Mill, Port Adelaide, which includes a grand display (focusing on Australian made machines, but not excluding other marques), a cavalcade along the northern beaches and a Show ‘n’ Shine, organised by Levis MCC. Members are encouraged to enter their bikes for the display and again, volunteers are called for to help out over the weekend. This is our club’s major event for 2022 and we hope to attract a lot of public interest, as we have done in the past.
See under the Events menu at fomsa.org for a full overview of the festival including entry forms or look at the calendar on this website.
Ring Lew Hylton on 0488 800 857, if you’d like to help out the club as a volunteer.
