Serpentine Falls Full Pannier Tour

Saturday, December 5 to  Sunday, December 6, 2015 

Both days are mainly on back roads with flat terrain, and at touring pace. Saturday, 5th December 2015, 58km. Meet at Wellard Train Station at 9.00am. 

After a pleasant ride through Wellard and a safe ride along Dixon Road we will stop for morning tea at the Dome in Rockingham. For those who will be cooking their dinner in the camp kitchen tonight, you can buy some provisions in Rockingham after morning tea. We then stay close to Cockburn Sound and Shoalwater Bay to Mersey Point, where we will enjoy our lunch while admiring Penguin Island in the distance. After lunch, we will follow Warnbro Sound all the way to Port Kennedy then on to Baldivis. A rest and an afternoon snack would be a good idea on Karnup Road, as we pass through Hopeland. As you pass through the settlement of Serpentine you could drop into the tavern and purchase wine or beer to have with tonight's dinner, or check out their counter meals for tonight if you choose to eat out. The tavern is about 2km from the Caravan Park. Bring your bathers so you can enjoy a swim in the caravan park pool or at the Serpentine Falls 1.5km away. There are limited supplies available in Serpentine, so you will need to bring what you intend to have for breakfast. 
Sunday, 6th December 2015, 30km. An easy day today as we ride through quiet back roads to Armadale, passing through Mundijong, Cardup, Oakford and Darling Downs. You may choose to ride all the way home.
To assist with the booking of tent sites, please notify the tour leader if you intend to participate. The cost of the tent sites and use of the facilities is $17.00 per person to be paid to the tour leader at Wellard Train Station on Saturday. It would helpful if you could have the correct amount available.
