MidWeek Decide and Ride 22 March 2018

Once again the TRCUB (Triumph Riders Canberra Ulysses Branch) with a token BMW rider  braved certain rainfall to experience the joy of a midweek ride. 
It was decided to do a Cotter Loop (incl Uriarra) from Nichols and have lunch at the Krack'd Peppa (Rose Cottage). 

It was also decided that this would be a pictorial ride report for those that prefer looking at pictures.

The following brave souls ventured forth:

  • Michael Winters     Triumph Trophy
  • Les Robinson    Triumph Trophy
  • Mike Kelly    Triumph Thunderbird 1600
  • David Dawson    R1200GS (Token Other Rider – LAMB SALAD eater)
Deciding to ride
After very little discussion my decision to do the Cotter Loop was accepted and as you can see we steeled ourselves for the task ahead.

We are here!
First stop was the Mt Mac lookout for the Cotter Dam, we did not actually go to the lookout however we did prepare our tyres for the road ahead.

Helps traction
And as light rain started to fall we headed south into the gathering gloom. The rain eased up before Murray's Corner and with absolutely no traffic it was a great run to Tharwa.
Parking Ulysses Style
As it started to rain again it was straight on Krack'd Peppa at the Rose Cottage (corner of Isabella Drive and Monaro Hwy) where we had an excellent meal and excellent service.

Mick's Shish and Fips

Unfortunately the photos of food did not work out except for Mick's Shish and Fips so you are all spared David's very healthy Lamb Salad and the 2 Cheese burgers which were excellent.
