16 MAY - THURSDAY TINKER DAY.
Starting at 10am from Steiglitz Road, NOT our clubrooms,
just off the Ballarat road (Midland Highway), not far from the Ring Road
intersection. We are going to visit a metal sculpture in Meredith which used to be located in NorthGeelong last year. We will travel to Meredith via Maude and Steiglitz so we can enjoy the hilly back roadson the way, use your powerful brutes on this trip as the hills are steep.
Some folks might like to meet up with us along that route if they live in that area.
I thought that we could have our lunch at the Hearn Meredith Hotel.
It was quite good last time we ate there.

25 MAY- SATURDAY SMELL THE ROSES DAY
This run will start from our clubrooms at 10.30am, and end up at Torquay for coffee and a chat at a popular café. The weather could be a bit chilly by then, so pack your warm woollies and Peter heater. We could use the back roads so as to get away from the worst of the traffic. There may not be too many opportunities for motor bike runs after this one,
so join the fun while you can. Cars welcome too.
