Ride and Event Calendar 2018

Ride Guidelines, to enhance a pleasant ride experience:

  • Arrive early and prepared: alert, proper ride clothing, check bike condition, fuel tank full, tyres at correct pressure.
  • Riders ride within their own limits ("Ride Your Own Ride") and observe speed limits & other rules of the road.
  • Riders do not overtake the ride leader unless previously discussed with the Ride Leader.
  • Do not overtake anyone on the left (unless in a separately marked lane).
  • Tail End Charlie rides at a safe margin behind the slowest rider and indicates to each corner marker rider that they may continue with the ride.
  • At each turn, the 2nd rider (the one behind the Ride Leader) pulls over and signals the corner - and waits until the Tail End Charlie arrives.
  • Riders inform Tail End Charlie if they intend to leave the ride.
  • Visitors are welcome at Ulysses rides - please introduce yourself, and ask about our ride protocols.
  • New and inexperienced riders: please ask the Ride Leader to match you with a "buddy" for the ride.
  • All Branch Sunday Rides usually start from East Perth at 9:00am.

My Favourite Roads Within a Day's Ride of Perth - PART 3: THE EAST.
From East Perth at 9:00am.
  • If it's above 33C, I'll postpone.. stay tuned.

  • **** As the weather on this day is looking like being pretty HOT, I've decided to postpone to a later, cooler date. Stay tuned! ****

    • This is a familiar one to some of you, but I'll never get used to four of the roads in this loop! They can be enjoyed at a relaxed pace or a bit more enthusiastically at dizzying speeds up to and including the speed limit!
    • The road surfaces are pretty good, and there's no getting away from the sweeping bends and the fast-(ish) straights.
    • Distance: ~400kms. Fuel: Plenty along the way.
    • Where to? It's a surprise :-)
    • Coffee break: TBA
    • Ride Leader, John Morrison (0415 198 183)

    PS: Why not plan a ride on YOUR favourite roads within a day's ride of Perth and let me know about it!? -JM
