Next Sunday ride has to include a bakery

Good roll up to Catalano's this morning.

Robin and His Royal Griceness left early to do a 700km lap in a day on a real GS and an Urban GS. I suspect Chris will be missing his 1200GS by the time he hits Nannup.

Dinga was back from his trip east and was keen to get one up on Bozo on the best bakeries.

BillB, German Paul, Dinga, Peter, Bolton and Bozo headed off on a short ride to Millbrook Winery. After camping for 10 minutes at a rail crossing and being distracted by a slow moving pony car (5 litres but two star safety rating) we got into the sweeping bends of Canning Road before taking a slow descent down the scarp on Canning Mills Road before doubling back on Chevin Road. By Gardiner Road we had lost a rider but he was found by the time the group got to Croyden Road. A flip through Lady McNess Drive and soon we were at Albany Highway. The group turned off on Jarrahdale Road and all safely arrived at Millbrook Winery though there were a few moments on slow speed gravel covered corners and getting parked up.

Underwhelmed by the coffee and cake one member headed to Serpentine Dam Café whilst the rest returned to Byford via Nettleton Road. One the way out we came across a 4WD stranded on some lateritic boulders but it seemed to be being sorted so we rode on.

The hills were pleasantly cool but it hit 36 degrees on the coastal plain on the way back.

Although members of the group were diplomatic there was a strong undercurrent that coffee and cake does not cut it for a Sunday Ride.

Toodyay Bakery next Sunday?

In deference to Swampy we operated without a tail end Charlie.

Good to get out for a short ride.

I still like Bakeries included in a ride, After all you have to feed the inner man and that's why I got married..........twice :lol:

Bill

Sorry to hear that the bike drop caused a painful injury. Hope it sorts itself out quickly.
