Anvil Beach Ride

Bikes filling up the Anvil Beach carpark.
We had twenty-four riders taking part in the ride out to Anvil Beach, which was good especially as it was a bit drizzly earlier on. Having said that the day turned out to be brilliant, very little wind, sunny and warm. It was good to see Phillip O’Halloran who had come down from Kojonup.

          checking out a spare wheel for his bike - should fit!First stop was Elleker where we were joined in our coffee break by Ronnie and Antoinet and Daniel who rode his 350cc Ariel from Bow River. The owner owner of the Elleker Store is always enthusiastic about bikes and came over for a look a couple of times.

We then headed out past Torbay and Youngs Siding before turning off down Eden Road - this has to be one of the nicest rides in our area, especially on an older or slower bike.

Ken, Andrew, Ray and Mike at the lookout.
Shortly after we arrived at the beach Chris Sainty arrived from Denmark on her BMW. After a walk to the lookout it was time for lunch in the carpark. Later we headed back to Albany, although Chris, Garry Taylor and Stephen and myself had a ride down to the Nullaki Peninsular. The road ends up at the Denmark estuary, a beautiful spot.

We then headed back to Albany. Somewhere on the return trip I lost the oil cap off my BSA, which meant that I could watch the oil returning into the tank. But I was pleased with the Sunbeam Chris was riding as I had been having a lot of trouble with the head gasket blowing and thanks to having the head skimmed (1mm) the bike went well.

Thanks for Kim and daughter Carris for doing back-up duties.
