Spanish Motorcycle Rally 2016


Our 16th rally will be held on the 12-13 November 2016.

It is open to Spanish motorcycles only, so dust off those Bultacos, Ossas, Montesas, Gas Gas etc. and come along for a friendly family oriented event at the 1500 acre property "Rivervale", bordered by the Shoalhaven River, NSW, one and a quarter hours drive east of Canberra.

To get there turn north up the Larbert Road from the Kings Highway (approx. 10km west of Braidwood or 3km east of the Warri bridge over the Shoalhaven River) and drive 8km to the rally site.

Entry to the rally is free, but a ride fee of $20 per rider applies, to be paid to the property owners. Most entrants turn up on Friday, to make it a long weekend.

BYO everything, there are unlimited free camping sites, a bush loo and washing / swimming is in the river. Fishing too if you want to throw in a line.

There is no racing or trophies, just friendly trail rides or for the more adventurous there are several moto-x tracks, an enduro loop and challenging sections for trials bikes.

There will even be a ride to the local pub if enough road registered bikes turn up.

A gymkhana may be held on Sunday morning if enough riders desire it, featuring the ever popular drag race, ride-the-plank, slow race and slalom.

At night sit around the campfire and tell a few yarns washed down by your favourite brew with other Spanish motorcycle enthusiasts.

Footpath parking - quick questionnaire


Fellow rider and
MLA Jayson Hinder is looking at the possibility of a footpath parking trial for the ACT.
To help, he is asking for feedback from riders:

• If you don't ride to work now, would you if you could park on the pavement near your workplace?

• Are there any unused 'hidden' spots and corners near your workplace that would be suitable for footpath parking? Send location details and photos if possible.

• In bad weather, when you didn't want to ride to work, would you use the bus instead of your car if you were provided with a MyWays card?

Either respond to the
Facebook post with info
or send an email to:
secretary@mraact.org.au

Thanks,
Miss Nicky Hussey
