Date changed (again), this time to the first weekend (3-4th) of November Even though the last ride I organised ending up being just me I shall not be discouraged, so planning on trying something similar for the end of this month. Could always be moved forwards or backwards by a week though, just in case I've overlooked some major event or something. Once again the plan is for a very relaxed and (mostly) legal pace, the emphasis being on simply enjoying the scenery and ensuring everyone gets to the destination intact and with plenty of time to sit around talking bikes over a few beers. Since I'll be riding a 250 this is once again a good opportunity for any learners wanting to get out and do some longer distance riding (although if you're on a 125cc this ride probably won't be suitable given the amount of overtaking on single lane roads that's likely to be required). Destination this time will be the brewery in Byron Bay, taking a very non-direct route down through the Gold Coast Hinterland. I was thinking something along the lines of this: http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=d&...101058,153.72345&spn=1.984233,4.22699&t=m&z=9 But certainly open to suggestions since that route's looking possibly a little too short at the moment. At this stage just thinking of tacking on a loop down to Ballina and back - but only because I've never been there before and it might at least add the chance to stop and take a few photos. Seems to be a few options for accommodation in Byron depending on how many people are interested - and what their preferences are. There is a backpackers attached to the Brewery offering everything from campsites through to individual rooms which looks to be a good option, but of course there are also other options in town within staggering distance. Plan for Sunday would be to take a longer route inland, providing a chance to do some proper rural highway kms and ensure a healthy collection of dead insects upon returning to Brisbane . Route I'm thinking of looks something like this: http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=d&...85823,153.305969&spn=1.972981,4.22699&t=m&z=9 Of course this route has been largely influenced by me choosing to go through towns with the same name as one I know in Victoria (like Clunes), or past places with amusing names (like Bald Knob). Once again, I'm certainly open to suggestions, especially if I've somehow included a long section of unsealed road. Plan would be to get back to Brisbane sometime around 4-5pm, though of course anyone living to the South or West of the city has the option of splitting off early (likewise anyone out Ipswich way).
