Midweek Ride : Tuesday 21st May

27 May
Richard – the ride leader on a CB1100XX

Another very enjoyable ride started with 15 riders leaving Hawthorn Crescent and heading up Greenhill Rd. Richard, riding his formidably fast looking Honda CBR1100XX, lead the ride on this cold and overcast day. We stopped briefly at Summertown, to make sure all our riders had made it up the hill and then set out for Lobethal, and our morning stop. Basket Range Rd, at Uraidla, was closed for work, but following the detour signs returned us to Basket Range Rd a little further on.

Once on Lobethal Rd it was through Lenswood to our morning Coffee break. The Bakery was warm and comfortable the food excellent and the company enjoyable, it required some determination to get back on our bikes again. Mount Pleasant was chosen as our lunch stop. The route took us to Cudlee Creek, Chain of Ponds, Gumeracha and Birdwood, to Mount Pleasant, where we stopped at the bakery opposite the Town Hall.

The ride more or less ended here, after lunch some riders set out for home going back towards Birdwood, the rest headed home via Tungkillo, Mount Torrens, Woodside, Nairne and the Old Murray Bridge Rd, through Bridgewater, Stirling and the Tunnels.

Not a long ride but enjoyable all the same. Congratulations and thanks to Richard for an excellent job leading the ride!

Next ride: Sunday 2nd June.
