On Saturday 20th February, 126 registered riders and drivers plus one registered pillion set on our 2016 AL’s RIDE. With further pillion riders and passengers in cars totalling 169.
All the rides were enjoyed with no majors problems experienced and minor distractions/delays limited to my flat tyre on the Bundanoon to Bathurst Ride together with some minor misdirection leading to a jaunt along a dirt road. Regardless, everyone arrived in Bathurst safe, well and in good spirits. A big thanks for the assistance provided with lunch enroute by The Clubhouse Hotel at Rockley, The Rylstone Hotel at Rylstone and The Tourist Hotel in Oberon. Great meals at each location so if you’re travelling in the area don’t forget to support and enjoy these establishments.
Local Bathurst Police and Highway Patrol then assisted our rider, drivers and Bathurst locals by assisting our group to ride as one unit along Havannah Street to Mount Panorama where everyone had the chance to experience this landscape and be part of the AL’s RIDE 2016 group photo.
We had hoped to have a final figure for the monies raised by now but unfortunately a few of the accounts have been slow to arrive, a number of other events have taken up time and some shortage of personal available to process all these accounts and pieces of information have conspired to delay our final figures being established and these funds progressing to our charities.
We must make special mention to Brett MORGAN who organised the donation of the bike lift by Levanta Superior Workshop Solutions. This top quality equipment raised a further $1625-00 for our cause.
Travel safe, Keith
