As you may be aware the BMW Motorcycle Club of Victoria runs an annual mid winter night ride called the Icicle Ride.
Well its on again! This year it runs from 6pm Saturday 6th July to midnight, and it's our 33rd year of running the event. Also we are pleased to announce that proceeds will go to the Royal Flying Doctor Service, a first for the ride.
It starts from the BP Service Centre on the Princes Highway, Officer. Melway 214 C6, it's the outbound servo on the M1.
Registration starts at 4pm, with a ride briefing at 17:50 for a start at 6pm.
Route instructions for the first leg, which finishes at a soup stop, will be handed out at the start. Routes for subsequent legs are available from the stops, and the ride culminates in a cooked meal, all in the registration cost..
You can ride the route yourself, or follow in an organised group. It doesn't matter which, just be there!
This year we are changing the time to finish about midnight rather than start at midnight, to make it a more attractive ride for those who prefer the challenge of a mid-winter night ride without the physical and mental strain of staying awake all night. We hope that the ride remains the same challenge as previous years and I will have to be very impartial when making the end of ride awards (but I do like a single malt)
