'All Mountains' Run & BBQ
Sunday, 16 October 2011

This year's event drew 32 bikes (3 Girder forks and 3 other pre 1950) and was a really great ride around some of Canberra's lookouts, late night parking spots, whatever.

It was very pleasant weather with very little traffic, a mild 15 degrees at the start but getting into the 20's during the afternoon.Gathering at The Spanish Club with so much parking was very different to Eastlakes and presented shades of the Services Club.

Col Hill had spent considerable time planning the routes to the peaks of Red Hill, Mt Pleasant, Mt Ainslie and Black Mountain.
There was a very leisurely ride between each destination and a riders brief at each place gave impetus for safe arrival at the next destination. There were no excuses for being lost and no distress calls.
Bill Lewis again tested the steep hills and descents of the ride with his 1929 BSA Sloper without any apparent dramas.

Arrival at the Black Mountain peninsula site was greeted by the BBQ trailer ably manned ("personned" in PC gender speak?) with Steve Davey on the serving end to deliver a healthy portion of tucker for everyone.
Ray Lalic with the back-up trailer had a very quiet run and complained that he had no-one to talk to during his back-up trailer stint.

By 2pm everyone was ready to head off for other duties.
It was another cracker run for the VVC with many interesting bikes, a great run and no disasters.

Keep up the good work and see everyone at the Swap Meet on the 30th October.
