SABERS opening ride for 2017

on .


Sunday 8th January 2017

Seven bikes started from Prospect on a much milder day than we endured yesterday (date of the scheduled ride). Five regulars and two visitors. No pillions today.

Norton Summit Road was awash with the lycra brigade...we negotiated around them all safely...even the two abreast testosterone warriors racing each other to the top. Mostly the tree and vegetation debris from our recent storms has been swept from the hills roads so we could enjoy the scenery as we went.

In Clarendon we picked up another rider. Lots of motorcycles out today...nice to get many return nods/waves. The Hindmarsh Tiers Road as always was a joy to ride. The Yankalilla Bakery was very busy as usual but the many friendly staff served the queue promptly. One rider left us here...he assured us he wasn’t going home to do his washing...!

We stopped in at Lady Bay to remember Tim Hunt, one of our founders taken by Leukaemia. His ashes were spread in the sea here.

Nice to have little wind on Range Road...a most enjoyable ride.

Fuel stop in Victor and two more riders left us.

Cleland Gully Road was fun again...only one set of dairy cow dung tracks across the road today...! And we soon found our way to Meadows along the favoured Bull Creek Road.

Three more riders joined us at the bakery where we recounted the journey with coffee and cake.

A fabulous day out and a great start to 2017 for SABERS. Thank you to everyone for marshalling and Tony for bringing up the rear.

Good day
