Xmas in July
Saturday July 7 - Sunday July 8
Saturday, 7 July 2018
97 km, flat / hills, touring pace.
Meet at Midland train station at 9.00am for a 9.15am departure.
Come and celebrate Christmas in July at Toodyay in the company of your cycling mates.
We will ride North on back roads to Upper Swan with a stop at Ginger’s Café for morning tea, and lunch purchases for consumption en route.
Then it’s a cruise through the beautiful Chittering Valley and the more challenging ride to our lunch stop in the Julimar State Forest. I’m sure the first floor verandah at the Freemasons Hotel will be a popular place to have a beer or two after a nice hot shower. Our hosts Stella and John will be providing a Christmas feast of turkey, ham and pineapple, gravy and five seasonal vegetables, Christmas pudding with custard, bread baskets, tea and coffee and a glass of port. All this for $35 per head.

After our continental breakfast we head back to Midland via Clackline. This would be the start for those wishing to ride on the KEP Track and / or the Heritage Trail from Mundaring. Morning tea at the Bakers Hill Pie Shop will be in order, then we continue through Wundowie, Wooroloo, Chidlow and Mundaring before the descent down the scarp through Darlington to Midland.
Accommodation and meal costs:
Shared hotel rooms @ $50 per person, this includes the continental breakfast. There is a variety of room layouts available, i.e., twin, double and family with double plus single. So if you are prepared to share rooms and beds, the more people we can have on tour.
