Ulysses Club

Eight riders left Billy Beans Café in Gurwood Street at about twenty to ten, last week with Young in mind for lunch.

First stop was Temora where they stopped at the Tourist Information Centre for 15 minutes or so and then navigated to Young via Millvale.

One rider short cut the ride and was heading back home through Cootamundra but our ever vigilant Tail-end Charlie realised the error and rounded him up at Stockingbingal and headed him up to Young where they all regrouped and settled in to an enjoyable lunch at Wilders Bakery.

After lunch the group all headed back to Wagga through Cootamundra and Junee.

Another great ride on a crisp winter's day.

Saturday morning Meet and Greet was not a great event.

Only half a dozen turned up on a cold miserable day and I do believe quite a few had gone away for the weekend.

On Sunday, it was not an official ride day but I went on a ride with three prospective members.

The ride took us through Wantabadgery and Nangus to Gundagai and then to Brungle and Tumut where we stopped for lunch.

There was a veritable truckload of bikes on the mountain roads and by noting the number plates most seemed to be from the ACT.

After we had had our lunch we continued on from Tumut to Wondalga and up over the Pine Leaf Road to Rosewood and at this point we noticed a fair drop in temperature, however, as we motored down the Tumbarumba Road toward home base it got a wee bit warmer.

We diverted off the Tumba Road to Humula and Tarcutta and ended up coming home through Borambola arriving a little over 4pm.

This coming Sunday a ride has been organised, but as usual no one has told me where, however, be at McDonalds Edward Street Car Park at about 9am ready to roll at 9.30am.

Our next Branch meeting is on the 18th at The Radio Club Rooms in Small Street, starting at 7:30pm. Keep your eyes peeled and I will give you details of "The Christmas in July Ride" which is coming up next month. Ride well ride safe.
