HUNTER VALLEY ADVENTURE RIDE
Attention all adventure bike riders: the crew at www.trailbikerallys.com.au that organise the mega Watagan Trail Bike Rally and Buladelah Trail Bike Rally events each year are turning their hand to adventure bike riding.
Rod Cartwright, Clive Ward and the crew at www.trailbikerallys.com.au are hardcore adventure bike riders themselves, so it's no surprise they should want to put their skills into an adventure bike based event.
So without further ado, the inaugural Hunter Valley Adventure Ride is all set to fire into life on the weekend of March 20/21, based from the plush surrounds of the Crown Plaza Resort at Cessnock in the very heart of the Hunter Valley wine country.
The ride will include two dedicated adventure bike loops, one north of Cessnock in the direction of the Barrington Tops, and the other south in the direction of the Watagans. Both day rides will feature self-guided navigation loops, with route-sheets supplied.
Saturday night will feature a mighty shin-ding in the form of a gala dinner at the Crowne Plaza Resort, which will include guest speakers and a raft of trade displays -- and yes, the TRAIL ZONE and www.offroadexplorer.com crews will be there with bells on.
The press release for the ride follows, so check it out and then we'll see you there!
