Velo Vin­cent Rally

Old Bike Australasia - - CONTENTS - Re­port Joanne Wen­den

There were 11 Velo’s and 7 Vin­cents on the Satur­day run, which was a good turn out for us. Nice to see some new faces, camp­ing were Mur­ray Barr and Ch­eryl Fen­nell who were mak­ing their way down to do the Tassie Tour with their bikes in tow. We had a big run or­gan­ised for the Satur­day about 185km, start­ing at Oberon to Black Springs, Mt David, Rock­ley, Perthville and on to the Old Vale Cir­cuit which was used for rac­ing in the 1930s be­fore Mt Panorama. We did a lap of the cir­cuit for nostal­gia and ev­ery­one stayed be­low 60 km/h. Then it was on to the O’Con­nell pub for lunch fol­lowed by a short way back to Oberon via the Mut­ton Falls Road, turn­ing off just be­fore Tarana. Af­ter re­turn­ing to the camp, there was a short time for a break, and off to the rail­way mu­seum just up the road, which a kind gen­tle­man vol­un­teered to open up es­pe­cially for us. Sun­day we did a small run of about 100km af­ter brekkie. Thanks to Peter Wolfenden for or­gan­is­ing all that. The Jenolan Caves Car­a­van Park, we all agreed was a good venue, the cab­ins seemed big­ger than what we were used to, and on a whole we gave it a big tick of ap­proval.

Rugged up for the Satur­day ride.
