About 12 bikes assembled at the Info bay at 10am. The ride originally was to go via Mt Barker bakery but was changed to Kendenup at the ride briefing.
A couple of us dropped into the Mt Barker Bakery to check and sure enough Geoff and David from Denmark were waiting.
Morning tea at Kendenup put a strain on the local cafe which ran out of a few items, we were also visited by the local traffic police. Fortunately they were only interested in the bikes. I put on my wet weather gear to fend off the odd shower on the way to Bluff Knoll and stayed dry as we hit a few showers along Salt River Road.
The turn-off at Tenterden was supposed to be marked by someone who must have forgotten and a few of us overshot the turn and had to backtrack. Don Frazer was a bit behind us and ended up going through to Cranbrook where he picked up fuel.
Some went to the Bluff Knoll Cafe and others made use of the Club's National Park passes and went up to the parking area and lookout for lunch and were rewarded with spectacular views of the Stirling Ranges.
A few comments, don't change the route set out in the magazine, someone will be waiting there. Check you have enough fuel as a few worried riders at Bluff Knoll were calculating if they had enough fuel to get home.
I think all the riders will agree, a great ride, thank you Garry Taylor for organising it.
