NSW Mountain Ride 12-15 NOVEMBER 2023: Led by Andrew Kennedy

Submitted by ANDREW.KENNEDY on Thu, 23/11/2023 - 12:09pm

        Five of us decided to get away into the NSW mountain and coastal area. Alf, Sam, Jack, Nick and myself. Plans were to meet Alf at Heyfield, then Maffra, Stratford, Bairnsdale for lunch then on to Cann River, afternoon tea and Bombala for two nights. All went smoothly and it's a pleasure to stay at the Heritage Guest house - the best place to stay and eat at in Bombala.

Motorcycle Hire in France

Submitted by MikeF on Tue, 24/10/2023 - 1:40pm

For anyone thinking about hiring a motorcycle in eastern France/the Alps area, I can recommend the company - 'The French Ride'.
They are based in Aix les Bains, about halfway between Geneva and Grenoble. They hire out a range of modern bikes, I guess 20-30 to choose from, and also hire most riding gear.
I enjoyed a 3 day hire from them in September, and was impressed with the professional and efficiently run business.
