      If weather is looking grim please check our FB page (creatively called 'Illawarra Scooter Riders'), where comments will reveal whether we go ahead with the ride. Don't forget, our members' mobile numbers are in the 'Files' if you want to contact anyone that way. Or if you don't want to join the Facebook page you can contact me using Scooter Community's private message/email system. I'll give you the goss!

      Hope to see everyone there! (Well, possibly not everyone you understand....).

    Don't take life too seriously. You'll never get out of it alive.

    So today it is for this short ride from Wollongong to Stanwell Tops. It's grey outside but so far no rain, and the sun is trying to poke through. Fingers crossed all will be well.

    Happy for anyone to join us. Don't feel you have to be a member of our group, as we welcome anyone.

    Have a great sunday everyone! Smile

    Hi Shyted,

    Yes we are, probably the 24th seeing as Easter is on our usual ride day. I believe we're planning on heading South towards Nowra way, maybe to Sussex Inlet. Nothing definite has been posted yet, but I'll nudge the Nowra contingent along and get them to make a decision, then will post it here. 

    Feel free to join our Facebook page, 'Illawarra Scooter Riders', if you haven't already done so.

    Re: ILLAWARRA SCOOTER RIDERS - MARCH 2013 MONTHLY RIDE

    Illawarra Scooter Riders is a group from the Illawarra and Shoalhaven who ride together for fun. We have no formal meetings, presidents, secretaries or any stuff like that. We arrange our rides usually through our Facebook site, 'Illawarra scooter Riders', which anyone is welcome to join. We have a great camaraderie and enjoy each others company and contributions.

    Our next ride is on Sunday March 24th.

    Arriving at Top Deck car park at Wollongong Lighthouse, at 10.00am, and departing no later than 10.30am.  From there we pick up some Southern folk at Albion Park Maccas, and will depart no later than 11am. We'll then travel up MacQuarie Pass, turn left into Pearson's Lane, then onto the beautiful Myra Vale Road, heading towards Fitzroy falls, where we may stop for a look, or may not. We'll then head down into Kangaroo Valley and up the other side, across the mountain top then down Berry Mountain into Berry township. Here we'll stop for lunch at a cafe somewhere.

    After lunch we'll head out of town, North, turning right at the Northern end into Beach Street which will take us to the road behind Seven Mile Beach. We want to check out the damage caused by the recent tornadoes down that way, then will head North, via Minnamurra Bends and Lake Illawarra towards Wollongong.

    Learners and less-experienced riders are well-catered for on our rides as we're all happy to keep you nestled inside our group. Having said that, we also have some large-sized scooters, too, with very experienced riders. Everyone is very welcome to come along. In the event of wet weather we routinely postpone the event, and details will be on our FB page.

    Hope to see you there!

    Unfortunately a very senior moment set in and I had read the post where it mentioned Sussex Inlet and firmly got it into my head that that was where you were heading on the day and so I had me a lovely time in Sussex inlet ..... all on my own Smile

     

    The ice cream and vanilla coke were just fine though as was the sunshine, me laying on the front lawn of the RSL Club at the waters edge.

    I may get it right one day ..... maybe.

     

    You're as bad as me, you used to be so much better, that makes you worse.

    Lizziecro:
    Hope to see you there!
    Well Lizziecro it was a great ride, perfect weather, heaps of starters from near and far... but only 1 yellow Vespa??? The Illawarra Scooter Riders are certainly a vibrant crew of two wheeled enthusiasts. After the meet up and a few minor incidents it was off to Albion Park to grab a few more riders then up Mac Pass to the Highlands and the beautiful Pearsons Lane route to Fitzroy Falls. The ride stopped for a coffee and ian and I headed off to try and find our mate Jax who's hiding in the hills somewhere west of Marulan.

    I hope you all had a good run down to Kangaroo Valley and back to the Gong. Wish to thank Graham and all the crew for letting us join in.....oh and my appologies for my reckless overtake up the pass. Hope to see you all again soon. btw some of my pics which you can also find on smugmug.

    Great photo's Pete. Yes sorry I had to change my plans. The family were looking very lost and dejected at the mere thought I should leave the house yet again. Sad I let them shackle me back to the sink where I seem to belong. They like it like that.
