OzHPV Gathering of the Clans - Corowa NSW 30/11 & 1/12

Postby Poiter » Wed Oct 23, 2013 10:27 am

Annual OzHPV get together.

All recumbent enthusaists welcome.
Venue is the Bindaree Motel & Caravan Park 454 Honour Street Corowa, NSW.
Bindaree has cabins, units, caravan sites and lots of camping areas.
Participants will need to book their own accommodation if they want a cabin/unit.
There are ample tent camping sites to just “turn up” for.

Corowa is 300km from Melbourne and 400km from Canberra.

Whilst the main gathering will be on the Saturday and Sunday, you may wish to extend your stay a few days on either side of the weekend.

Activities planned include winery tours, long rides, short rides, human power boats.
Or you can just sit around the campsite and talk about recumbents.
The terrain around Corowa is flat so no hills and there are many quiet back roads.

No entry fee to attend.

Please get this out to as many groups, forums and interested people as you can think of.

Kilt optional.

Looks like Riggsbie and myself will be there. Zockra is going out for it's first shakedown ride today, so it will finally be ready for Corowa :)

Make sure you go for a ride and have a coffee at the chocolate factory in the old silos. And of course, make the most of the wineries. All those pedal powered machines will look splendid next to the mercs, beemers and porsches!

I can see it now.
That would be a classic sight.

Get the carbon seat all shiny ;-)

I note the terrain is flat but I'm guessing you can't take the mango :(

I could but the Mango is not very sociable to be honest.....

It's all about having fun rather than going fast.....I would take a two wheeler but I think I might fall off after too much wine tasting ;-)

Just got home.....

Great weekend.....lots of characters, some good riding, some good roads, some not so good surfaces, great chats, great Parker's Pies in Rutherglen ! Made some good friends !

Great to see so many recumbents on the road at any one time.....apparently trikes are not supposed to go fast, no one told me.......I love my ICE Vortex FS :-)

Thanks to Peter Heal & Co for organising it !!

Also bought an M5 Carbon Lowracer as well.....oops.....
