Before starting off the group gathered for the ride briefing discussing the need to ride responsibly keeping within our abilities and to look after each other.
Meanwhile, the Ulysses retrieval vehicle with Tracey at the control was sent out to help a broken down scooter that had failed to arrive at the ride starting point. Its rider was safely conveyed back home to collect car and trailer to recover the scooter.
The Braidwood to the Bay leg involved traveling in a steady flow except for the occasional hold up with slower vehicles such as horse floats. Due to the increased policing on the Kings Highway we rode carefully towards our first coffee stop at Nelligen, where our group enjoyed the peace of the river while waiting for our food and caffeine hits.
We continued after the short break weaving our way down the road towards the Adelaide Hotel at Moruya. The rising temperature was adding to the enjoyment of a lovely stretch of road with a great selection of curves dotted along the way.
We rode into the carpark at the rear of the Adelaide walking into the hotel to find our table reserved for us. Anticipating what was on today’s menu we started off with cold drinks to cool us down while listening to the diverse conversations, tales tall and true, over our lunch break.
We traveled back to Mogo via the coast road to stop and take in the sea breeze and check out the wild life from a coastal lookout.
As usual for a Sunday we did encounter a great number of people traveling west with us, slowing the ride back to Braidwood. We stopped off at Braidwood to have a rest and a drink, saying our "au revoirs" before continuing on. Our journey from Braidwood to home was a less stressful ride as the slower vehicles were spaced out making it easier for the traffic to travel at a good pace.
Once again we had a great day out with fine food and friends - we hope to see more of you on our next ride.
