Club Events

The Club run many sorts of events from our fortnightly weekend rides, through to overnighters or weekends away (not to be missed) to our fantastic Fun Day events at the Phillip Island circuit.  This is the place to keep your eye on to see what is happening. 

Events may appear here before registration is open. If  the event is a limited-numbers event, there may be a wait list option for you to put your name down in case anyone cancels. 

Many events are free, some are not, some events require a deposit or full payment up front, some events have limited numbers.  So, be sure to check the event details by clicking on the event below.  In the event that you are no longer able to attend a paid for event we do have a Refund Policy which you can review here.

Only financial club members may book an event, although unless the event is specified as 'members only', a club member may book for their non-members guests.  Again, check the event details.

    December, 2018A Saturday - now open for registration!

    Want to kick off the 2021 Fun Day season on the new(ish) Broadford track surface.  Here's your chance!  This will be our only Fun Day at Broadford this year so make sure you make the most of it.  

    It will be run under an MV permit as we have done before so if you do not have a current annual MA licence you will need to purchase a one event licence.  But if you are planning on doing 4 or more track days throughout the year it's worth considering getting yourself an annual licence to save some $.

    The ride departs Butler’s Pantry at 9:30 am and is a full morning to Alexandra via Warburton, Marysville and Eildon. Lunch venue is Alexandra’s corner pub. There'll be a coffee/glutton stop at Marysville en route. Finish is Healesville for a distance of 275 km plus commutes.

    Plenty of twisty stuff and at a pace suited to most. No planned fuel stop before Alex (205 km) so start with a full tank, as always.

    Joining the ride at Marysville is feasible for those who want to arrange it.

    • Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit
    Register

    If Broadford wasn't enough for you then make sure you also add the Phillip Island Fun Day into your diary.

    Early Bird pricing will be available for the first 3 weeks before prices go up again so jump on early to save yourself some $.

    It will be run under an MV permit as we have done before so if you do not have a current annual MA licence you will need to purchase a one event licence.  But if you are planning on doing 4 or more track days throughout the year it's worth considering getting yourself an annual licence to save some more $.

    Details of services available on the day will be confirmed shortly.

    And yes, we've put an order in for good weather.  If you remember 2020 (the year that nearly was) the day we had booked in early May was a perfect day for riding so we've asked for the same again :-)

    We will also arrange the usual dinner in Cowes on Sunday night as a separate event so keep your eyes out for that one.

    Join us on a round-a-bout route to Woolamai for lunch at Inline 4 Cafe. The format is an extended morning of riding via Powelltown, Neerim and Loch. Lunch is lateish but we’ll have a decent smoko midway.

    Homeward return is direct by highway for Melbourne people, more of the same for Gippsland members. Psyche yourself for 240 km between Rowville and Woolamai.

    Suited to all levels of rider (on singles, V4's or ring-in marques of non-L2 configuration).

    This sets the date for the 2022 Tiger Hunt:

    Friday, Feb 11 – Sunday, Feb 20, 2022

    Macquarie River, Ross

    The plan is to head straight over the Highlands from Devonport for the first night at Strathgordon. It is followed by two nights at Tullah Lakeside Lodge on the west coast, single nights at Deloraine and St Helens, then a double-header in Hobart to finish. It is a double clockwise swirl that gets the west in first, just to confuse the anti-counterclockwisers.

    Features of this Hunt include a multi-option day based from Tullah, quality time in the hills of northern Tasmania, working in the historic town of Ross (pictured) and sampling some new roads down south. Detail will be published in August Desmoto.

    Provisional route is here
