For today's ride, our enterprising Ride Captain has decided to devise one of Jaks "cornivorious" routes. There is a bit of double tracking involved here, but they are bloody lovely roads and no one is likely to complain, and there are certainly plenty of corners. Riders will be guaranteed plenty of opportunity to "do their thing"!

This is the plan:

BP Servo at Yatala - Tamborine Village - Mundoolun Connection Road to Canungra - over the top - turn right into Clagirab Road - Advancetown Pub (break) - back up Clagiraba Road - right then left into Henry Roberts Drive - to the top - down the Goat Track Road to Canungra Pub (lunch) - back up the Goat Track Road - Tamborine Mountain - Bearded Dragon Hotel - turn left then right into Mundoolan Road - on to Shell servo on Mount Lindesay Highway - right then left into Camp Cable Road - on to Logan Village Pub for our goodbyes.

There is a ride route map here.

The Vietnam Veterans and Veterans MC's Anzac Day Dawn Service is a very moving event, and one that definitely shouldn't be missed.

During the service, Steiny will be laying a wreath on their Cenotaph on behalf of our club.

FOR CLUB MEMBERS ONLY: After the ceremony, we will be riding back to Steiny's place for a BBQ breakfast. The club will be providing all the food, etc.
