Malmsbury run

Sunday 19th July I led a ride to the Moto-Bean cafe at Malmsbury and the nearby Mt Alexander. I only took a couple of pics and forgot to take any at Moto- Bean, however, some older pics from a prior ride can be viewed HERE

Fellow Ulyssian from Melbourne (and former prolific blogger) Raymond Herd met us at Ballan for morning tea and then rode to the cafe with us. Just as we were leaving when another friend and Ulyssian from Bendigo, Rob H, showed up. Sorry we didn’t really get a chance to have much of a chat Rob!

It was chilly when I left home.

Grassy’s new Honda CTX 1300. This is the first one that I’ve seen.

Stopped at Mt Alexander

Unfortunately it was a boring run home from Newstead onwards, however, I wanted to get us back as quickly as possible as the temperature had remained under 8C for virtually all of the trip and there were a couple of new riders who were feeling the pinch with the combination of the distance and cool temps. All up, approx 365 kms for the day.


Lexton pub for lunch

On Sunday 21st June I took a winter ride with the Ulysses club to the Lexton pub for a roast lunch. It was clear and sunny, however, only around 6C – 8C for much of the trip. The pub did a great job of serving around 24 of us really quickly and the food was great as well.

Morning tea at Gordon.

Happy riders after lunch

Did I mention that it was cold? Here’s Robyn checking out ‘Tall Paul’s’ new Triumph.

All up I covered around 415kms for the day and rode some roads that I’ve never been on before. A great winter’s day out.
