It's getting a bit late to post this - but - the annual February long weekend ride (11-13 Feb) is only a few weeks away if anyone is interested in joining in. Basic details are on the Vets site at http://www.stvcc.asn.au 100kms on Saturday - Orford to Bicheno. 220kms on Sunday - Bicheno, Lake Leake, Campbell Town, Fingal, Bicheno . 100kms on Monday - Bicheno to Orford. You organise accommodation in Bicheno. You organise food. You organise everything else. There is a trailer to carry all your bits and pieces at minimal cost. There are 24 signed up so far with a range of average speeds so plenty to ride with.

And I am signed up.

Planning to ride up to Triabunna on Friday morning (from Carlton), staying at Triabunna caravan park Friday night, then rolling back to Orford on Saturday morning for the 11am group start. If anyone is interested in riding with me, we could meet in Sorell, or at the Fingerpost Rd/Tasman Hwy intersection.

We stayed at the Triabunna caravan park on Dales' Big Loop a couple of years ago. It was clean and tidy, with van sites, tent sites, and cabins. Call them on 62573575 to book.

I think Barry is making his road racing debut with the STCC this year. Well that is the word on the street.

As to which race will he appear at is anyone's guess. I am guessing he may go for a TT focus, but I think he would go alright in something like the Hell of the South.
