Ride to Yankalilla, Sunday 28th October

29 Oct

The ride was led by Lou Peilschmidt, because our club captain is undergoing some medical procedures which will put him out of action for a couple of more months. I’d like to thank Lou for stepping in at the 11th hour.There were 12 starters – most riders opting to ride modern bikes, although there was a Honda 750-4 and I did briefly see a 69 Triumph T120R at the start, not sure what happened to it afterwards, though.

We rode to the Meadows bakery for morning tea and ended up at the Yankalilla bakery for lunch taking in the views from the Myponga dam etc. We rode Bull Creek Rd, Nangkita Rd and Victor Harbor Rd on the way there – South Rd and Pages Flat Rd on the return journey. There were no particular incidents arising from the ride and no photos were taken. The weather conditions were good and everyone made it home safely. A few of us opted to tear down Range Rd and experience the twisting Wickham Hills Rd before arriving home.

Next month, I’ll see if we can get some photos published to show you what a great time everyone has on these weekend rides.
