Snowy 2016

Well, I don't know who is still hanging around this old water hole.. but...

It's nearly here again!!

Snowy Ride 2016
https://www.snowyride.org.au/

Think this is its 16th year, and our 13th straight attendance, 12th on the LT (not unlucky!)
So looking forward to this, since we are part-way through having half our home torn down for reno's... it'll make a nice break.

Re: Snowy 2016

An update if anyone is still around to read it.... LT riders are getting thin on the ground around here!

Another great Snowy Ride is done and dusted.
Over $250,000 raised to help combat childhood cancer, over 2200 riders and pillions attended.
Snowy Ride 2016 Raises More than $250,000 for Childhood Cancer Research ? Snowy Ride

I didn't see another LT this year, although another one (bfree) was in the vicinity for another occassion, but we didn't catch up.
Unlike most years when we do the main riding around the mountains on the Saturday, we chose to do our run up to Charlotte Pass on the Friday, as the weather was due to turn nastier (snow predicted) and colder.
At worst we rode in temps of about 2 deg C, -4 windchill. The following day it was 0 deg C and -7 windchill... but the snow/rain held off . We were tucked up inside staying warm.

Great fun playing in the snow that was still around....

Re: Snowy 2016

Always good to have heated grips available!
Also ran with a new Michellin PR4GT front tyre Hilton. Worked really well! Still had an old Metz 880 on the rear.
