We were well primed by our Macquarie Towns Club mates that the Singleton rally was one not to miss and they were right! The small club of 65 members, Singleton Classic Motorcycle Club put on a fabulous rally with the hub of the action being the beautifully preserved Singleton Showground Grandstand Pavillion. Blessed with beautiful weather, there were two Saturday rides; a short run of 110km and a longer one of 230km. The latter took riders (and many pillion passengers) from HQ out through the vineyards of Broke and on to the morning tea stop at Lake Liddell, near Muswellbrook. From there the run continued to Denman and through some fabulous riding country to Jerry’s Plains before returning to Singleton for lunch and judging. Saturday evening’s prize presentation at the Singleton Bowling Club incorporated a trivia night and a hearty meal which was enjoyed by all. The weekend concluded with a short ride on Sunday morning with all the rides being expertly marshalled – a real credit to the organisers in what was a very pleasant weekend in the Hunter Valley.
