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.
