Our avid tour leader, Allan, along with hench-cyclists Karen and Kelly have been busy since new year researching the Goldfields Tour – 2019. Once again the tour is on Grandfinal Weekend – September 27-29th.
This year’s base will be near Rushworth – at a holiday camp on the shores of Lake Waranga. https://www.lakewaranga.com/?page_id=23
A minimum number of 30 is required to secure this accommodation, which contains shared rooms with single beds and bunks, large, well appointed bathrooms, huge kitchen and communal areas and easy access to the lake and local attractions.
The group will travel via Heathcote, and, naturally, the area abounds with wineries!
The rides will be on quiet roads, with some gravel sections, and the Murchison-Rushworth Rail Trail. Therefore Allan recommends that participants bring bikes with wider tyres – at least 35mm.
Please let Allan (0418 992 672) know as soon as possible whether you are interested in attending this year’s Goldfields Tour. This will allow Allan to decide whether it is plausible to book the holiday camp.
Because a firm booking must be made, and a minimum number of 30 is required to secure the holiday camp, there will be a non-refundable deposit required, payable around Easter.
It is expected that, as on previous tours, a bus and bike transport will be provided.
