Doonie's Winter Solstice Ride June 27th 2015

Not to be confused with any Monarchs organised Winter Solstice Ride. This is Doonie's Winter Solstice ride and the destination this year is the Delegate Hotel on the evening of Saturday the 27th of June in the year of our lord 2015. Ring the pub and make a booking, plan your own journey with or not with your mates. I have booked. I'm in. This is not a Monarchs sanctioned event but Monarchs who choose to come along are more than welcome. There is room to camp near the pub and elsewhere. Single rooms. Double rooms. Bunk rooms. Pub food, and a fantastic ride in and out. Come here on Friday if you wish. Four double beds. First in best dressed.

I know there is a ride organised for May and I reckon I'll be there. This is not to be confused with that but is a separate Winter Solstice event.
Doon.

Fail.

This is a fail. Doofus here forgot that date was the Monarchs 50th Anniversary Dinner. You can go if you want but I can't.

Dang.

27th june

Date changed to 27th June if you are thinking of coming. Pub phone number for bookings is 02 6458 8091. Lot of different ways to get there.

If anybody knows how to change the date in the header, please let me know.

I might be the only one interested

Its about once a month that I'll remind you about this. My annual Winter Solstice Ride is about going for a ride on possibly the coldest wettest day of the year. Certainly as near as we can get to the shortest. Its not for wimps but we do wimp out a bit. This year is the Delegate Pub just over the border into NSW. Ring the pub to book a room on the 27th of June Phone 02 6458 8091. A variety of accommodation is available. You could plan to come here to Briag, first in best dressed, then ride to the Pub Saturday, stay the night, warm room, big fire, cheap tucker and accommodation, good friends then come back here Sunday, go home Monday. Put the bike on a trailer for the trip up to my place and back. We don't care, or pick your own way in. Make an adventure out of it. Its been on for a few years and is always good fun.

Lucky you are planning on getting rooms because otherwise you would freeze your arse off.

Got down to about 3 degrees at night in May 2013 when we were last there.

Nice hotel.

Nother liddle bump. A great place to go to, plan a journey from anywhere you like. Stand around a fireplace, drink a bit of grog, talk a bit of shit.
