The Long Weekend, One Day, No Pannier Tour (Again)
Sunday March 3 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Please Note: This page may be updated prior to ride.
As last years Long Weekend, One Day, No Pannier Tour was a successful days ride, we are going to run this one again which is very handy for the up and coming CTAWA 2019 Victorian Goldfields Tour run by Trevor. Members participating on Trevor’s tour are encouraged to do this ride as it would be good training prior to the CTAWA 2019 Victorian Goldfields Tour. The idea is to have a long days ride as a tour and we can all rest up on the Monday public holiday. A good training ride and you will get to meet your fellow tour riders. Please note, if the weather is exceptionally unkind, the ride will be shortened.
Meeting at the Mandurah TS for a 8.30 am start, we head off in a clockwise direction, east, through flat farming country side on back roads to Pinjarra where we will have an enjoyable morning tea at that quirky tea room which we affectionately call Patrick’s cafe (because Patrick found it). Purchasing our lunches from the world famous Pinjarra Bakery to have on the road, we head further east (towards Dwellingup) but turning onto quiet back roads heading south and eventually west where we will scoff down our lunch somewhere on the banks of the Harvey Estuary/Peel Inlet From here we travel north towards Yunderup where we will have afternoon tea then back to the Mandurah TS for home.
This ride will be conducted as a tour, at touring pace. However there will the opportunity for the hoons of the club to ‘open up’ on some of the sections.
