Meet BP Blacksoil 8.30am for 9am departure. Distribute 1st Card. This will not be a led ride as such but detailed directions and GPS route will be available. Riders may choose to ride in small groups.
Route via Walloon, Rosewood, Merryvale to Puma Aratula Coffee Stop and distribute second card.
For riders coming from further afield who cannot make the early departure then you are welcome to join the ride at the Puma Aratula and collect 2 cards and join the game. Coffee stop from just after 10am.
Short ride to Moogerah Dam Picnic Ground (Haig Park) to collect third card.
Longer route to collect fourth card at Mt Alford Hotel carpark.
Onto lunch at the Royal Hotel Kalbar by 12.30p for lunch and collection of fifth and final card. Winner declared with a $50 Bunnings Card for the winning hand.
A secret hand will be dealt at the start and sealed for the duration of the ride. The winning hand will be the hand that is the closest hand ABOVE the secret hand. If in the circumstance the secret hand is the highest hand on the day then the winning hand will be the closest hand BELOW the secret hand.
There are tar and dirt road route options exploring lots of back roads in the beautiful Fassifern Valley. Some of the scenery of the scenic rim on these backroads are simply stunning. I will be very surprised if anyone has ridden all of these roads and the feedback from those members who have assisted in the test runs has been very positive. All of the dirt sections are easily ridden by any capable rider on a road bike and a breeze on a GS (even two up). The dirt sections total between 20 - 25 km.
The food and service at the Royal Hotel is excellent - we have a table booked on the undercover deck BUT you must confirm your attendance as numbers will be strictly enforced due to Covid restrictions. You cannot expect a seat at the table if you just show up on the day unannounced.
Distances from start to lunch are 143 km (all tar route) and 172 km (dirty route). Fuel at Puma Aratula if needed.
Come along and have a great day riding with like-minded friends and a chance to pick up a $50 gift card.
