Adventure Ride set for the weekend

ADVENTURE was put on hold for the Gympie Motorcycle Club’s Gympie Adventure Ride earlier this month but the event will take place this weekend.

Gympie Motorcycle Club spokesperson Donna Jeremy said riders were eager to get down to the Imbil Showgrounds to kickstart the epic ride.

The Gympie Adventure Ride is a non-competitive navigation ride open to all licensed riders on registered bikes, taking in national parks, state forest and shire roads.

Taking in breathtaking scenery, Saturday riders tackle 200 kilometres while Sunday 120 kilometres are planned.

Spectacular views out across the Sunshine Coast hinterland will also be a highlight of the ride, allowing participants a unique appreciation of the natural environment.

Jeremy said numbers were capped so riders had to get in early.

“Entry includes route sheets, camping Friday and Saturday night, along with meals,” she said.

Cost for the Gympie Adventure Riders is $145 while Adventure Touring Riders pay $130.

For enquiries, call Motorcycle Country on 5482 6911 or Andrew Brook on 0419 642 963.

Meanwhile, in other Gympie Motorcycle Club news, Jeremy said wet weather ensured bikes remained locked away in the sheds.

“Due to wet weather, the last two races the club was to attend were cancelled,” she said.

“We won’t be racing now until the weekend of November 13-14 in Kingaroy.”

Gympie riders will again be looking at demonstrating their dominance at the event, continuing what has been an exceptional year on numerous podium finishes.
