From tour leader Allan Marshall
So far there are about 14 interested in the Maryborough Rides. The tour will be on the 3rd-4th of October & leaving Friday evening. We will be staying at the Laanecoorie Lakeside Park, www.laanecoorie.com.au. I have booked the 4 bedroom house & a Deluxe Ensuite Cabin & 2 Powered van sites. They have one of the best camp kitchens that I have seen & we may take advantage of it. I should call the rides Cycle Central Goldfields.
Day one –Shuttle to Tarnagulla then bike tour around this old gold mining town, then bikes back on the trailer & go to Moliagul. We will bike around on 4 -5 KS of dirt Roads The home of the Welcome Stranger nugget & the Berth place of Dr Flynn the founder of the Flying Doctor service.Then we will bike it to Dunolly for lunch & a ride around this old gold mining town. We will have lunch here at the Bakery, who’ll stay open for us if we’re running late (as long as I let them know). After this we will ride to Bealiba its about here where my mother’s parents had 640 acres during the 2nd war I used to visit as a 4-5 year old but I can’t find the exact spot. Tour around this old town,then bikes back on the trailer & head for Laanecoorie to freshen up.
Day 2 – Still a work in progress – I’ve decided the route, but I want to drive it first. I will be showing some pictures & a talk at the AGM.
Good riding Allan Marshall
