Default Great Alpine Ride...........

The weathers finally starting to cheer up round here and that means it's time to plan a mountain ride.It wont be until late October (good weather) but If anyone wants to tag along they're welcome.It'll be a 2 nighter taking in the Great Alpine Road and a loop around the Snowy Mountains.

Excellent roads and scenery....

Free 5 star accommodation provided....OR.....we'll just camp on the side of the road somewhere.

A la carte banquet dining provided.......OR........we might find some fresh roadkill we can chuck on the campfire.

Cold Chisel and The Giants have been booked to play for us......OR......If they cant make it I think theres a juke box in the pub.

Penthouse Pet strippers have been hired to entertain us........OR.......there might be a coupla local skanks in the pub.
