I went down to this to have a look at the new format. This was run by the Frankton Thunder people and not a Ulysses ride this year. The ride started at the Cambridge raceway instead of the Town Hall and was a lot earlier but it seemed a few people hadn’t got the memo about the change in plans as I saw a few bikes heading for Cambridge Town Hall as this ride was starting. Even I almost missed it as the ride was heading towards Hamilton as I arrived in Cambridge so I did a U-turn and joined in the center of the pack.

There weren’t many adventure bikes there I counted 3 including me

This BMW airhead was pretty nice though

There were 3 sidecars there

I know this one gets used on a few gravel roads
