Nunijup Mother's Day Ride

by Chester

Chris and Ruth at the lake.
Thirteen bikes turned up at Mercer Rd on a nice summery autumn day. It was good to see two mothers there, Chris Offer and Ruth Wolfe. Max and Ross were there too.

It was great seeing them after a while since they last joined us on a ride. We all set off down Chester Pass Road to Porongurup Road through to Mount Barker and the bakery for morning tea. Geoff, from Denmark, turned up and said it had taken him an extra half hour to get there due to a hiccup with an incident on the way.Lunch time at Lake Nunijup.

It was then off up the highway to Martagallup Road, arriving at Lake Nunijup for lunch. While we were eating, Daniel and his buddy appeared through the bush on dirt bikes having taken some back roads from the west of Denmark.

Max, Ross, Ruth, Chris and Brendon beside Lake Nunijup.
After socializing on the hall verandah, one group decided to head back via Kendenup - Woogenellup Road. Some headed straight back via Albany Highway, Daniel went bush, and the rest of us took Sturdy- Boyup Road and on to Muir Highway then Spencer Road to Narrikup for a coffee break.

Ruth was concerned she was very low on fuel and said that 250km would stop her. I followed her back to the big roundabout where she gave me the thumbs up and headed down Hanrahan Road. I checked the speedo when I got home. It was 248km, so I guess Ruth made it home on the fumes.
