Anyone riding June long weekend 2019

Post by MELONHEAD » Wed May 22, 2019 4:20 pm

The "boss" has told me I should go for an overnight ride this June long weekend, so who am I to ignore her orders. I am keen on an overnight, or possibly 2 night ride. I am in Lake Macquarie. Is anyone planning a ride I might be able to tag along with, or is anyone keen to tag along with me? I am riding a 1090 Adventure R and am a lot more softcore than I was on the 640 Adventure, but still like doing big kms to get the most out of the day. I am keen to ride some nice gravel roads, some tar as well, and head west away from the coast.

Hi Marc,
I was thinking of heading out around Canowindra or something like that as well. I don't know any dirt roads out around that way but am sure you do. I might be able to wrangle 2 mates as well. Were you thinking one or 2 nights?

Hi Lee
Im thinking Saturday Sunday atm.
Canowindra is an ok town but very expensive to stay in.
Wellington and even Murrumbateman is a great destination, awesome dirt roads and great pub feed as well.
Murrumbateman on a 2 day ride is hard to not cover some of the same country on the return.
Can make a great loop ride with Wellington as well and some brilliant riding, its a great destination.

I have plenty of good routes for the areas and happy to sort accommodation etc..

There is just one proviso, and that is, my mum had a bad fall on Friday, broke her hip and had surgery this weekend,
So far so good but anything could happen, hopefully be all good but you never know :?

I had no firm plans to visit Canowindra. Just looked like a place far enough away on the map. I am more than happy to go with your recommendations as I have not ridden out that way at all really. I totally understand your situation. I can find plenty to do if you have to pull the pin to look after your mum :thumb:

Never stopped in Grenfell
Not a lot there.
Cowra is a far nicer town to stay in that area.
