Macquarie Towns Motorcycle Restoration & Preservation Club Annual Rally
169 motorcycles gathered for the annual MTMR&PC rally, based at Windsor in Sydney’s northwest, with brilliant sunny weather throughout. Excellent organisation meant there were marshals in bright blue vests on every major turning as the ride meandered through the back roads of the historic district. Saturday’s ride commenced at 9.30 and took entrants to the morning tea stop at Ebenezer Presbyterian Church – the oldest continuously operating church and the oldest school building in Australia. Suitably refreshed, riders then headed north, crossing the Hawkesbury River via ferry at Lower Portland and on to the tiny Hillside School at Glenorie for lunch and judging. With the promise of a balmy day reaching 26 degrees, a good turnout of entrants backed up for the shorter Sunday ride which concluded at the Yarramundi Lookout overlooking the Penrith Lakes.
End of the Sunday ride at Yarramundi Lookout.
