I am planning a jaunt down to the snowy mountains on the weekend of
April 25 - 26. It's not a long weekend and I am told that double demerit
points finished at the end of Easter although it is the last week of NSW
school holidays. However this shouldn't worry us too much as most of the
route will be on back roads with the exception of the commute down on
the first night.
This ride is suitable for medium to large capacity bikes with riders who
don't mind doing up to 600k's per day over some of the best motorcycling
roads in NSW. Anyone is welcome to come provided you and your bike (and/or
pillion) are up to traveling moderately long distances at
moderately high speeds. The aim of the trip is to have fun and enjoy the
company of fellow motorcyclists.
The trip will be run in much the same way as the Oxley Highway and
Alpine Netrides (for those of you who have experienced them or read the
You will need to make sure that you have plenty of life left on your
tyres these, roads are notorious for wearing out tyres really quickly
<grin> as some of the Alpine Netriders will attest and tyre replacement
en route is not possible. Finally be prepared to have heaps of fun.
I have pre booked accommodation for a limited number. If the group
bigger I'll try to get more but can't guarantee a place.
