EOI: Champion’s Ride Day (Feb/Mar 2020)

Expressions of Interest

Our Club Ride Captain, Tony Jones, is planning on doing a Champion’s Ride Day at Broadford Raceway in February/March 2020.

Ride days are an awesome way to enjoy your bike, without worrying about cars, trucks and speed cameras. Surrounded by like-minded enthusiasts, ride days are a safe and professional way to have the best fun on two wheels!

All you need is:

  • Full leathers, motorcycle boots, gloves and a full face helmet (or hire on the day for $75)
  • A bike with good tyres and brakes, nothing leaking or falling off, and no gear racks (or hire a bike on the day, from $395)

Sessions are graded (based on your speed and experience) into Starter, Intermediate, Intermediate-Fast, and Advanced groups.

Cost: $180 (or half price if this is your first time, and you go with a mate who’s done it before!) + $30 for a Motorcycling Australia Recreational day licence

Optional extras: Gear hire $75. Bike hire from $395. Photo package $55.

Background

Following on from the Club’s successful trips to Tasmania in March 2016 and 2018, we are proposing a return to the Apple Isle in March 2020.

Tasmania offers many tourist attractions, fabulous motorcycling roads, beautiful scenery, and good weather in March, usually!

We propose departing Melbourne on the evening of Thursday, 19 March 2020 on the Spirit of Tasmania, and returning on the Spirit’s evening sailing on Saturday, 28 March 2020.

Those interested in attending may wish to depart and/or return earlier or later, and this is totally at your discretion.

There is no specific itinerary at this stage. If there is sufficient interest in the trip, then an itinerary will be drawn up closer to the time.

Note: The Club does not do group bookings for ferry or accommodation. It will be each attendee’s responsibility to book their own fares and accommodation.
