    I sometimes post details of upcoming VERi events in Victoria here.

    We have two more for 2017, Tallarook this weekend and Three Bridges in late November. Email entries have closed for Tallarook, but you can enter at the event. More details about Three Bridges will be available soon.

    Next year will be the 10th anniversary of the Harrow and we are planning a big event that is not to be missed!

    Jeez - that name rings a bell but been awhile since I lived at Boorowa, i grew up on a property called Geegullalong out the Cowra rd

    This little track is part of the Geegullalong Stock Route, this is where I learnt to ride & I'm still falling off [not as much anymore !]

    Been trying to get some info on the upcoming 3 bridges event and have had no luck. The veri vinduro website gives no info apart from a date?

    A few of the club's key players have been busy with the Bonanza and the vintage class at the A4DE in Cessnock, so we have been a bit distracted lately.

    The event is going ahead though, on the weekend of April 28-29. There'll be riding on Saturday afternoon and then from Sunday morning (exact time frames TBA). Camping available on-site on Saturday night.

    No pre-entry, all entries taken at the event on either day.

    Bikes don't have to be registered for this one as it's all on private property. However all riders will require an MA licence, with single event licences available. Minimum age for riders is 16.

    VERi works on a pre 1988 format, so no modern bikes (other than officials and sweep riders etc). All bikes have to be in a safe condition, and not too loud. There should be a tail light & headlight fitted (don't necessarily have to work).

    More details will be added to the VERi website and Facebook page as they are confirmed, and I'll share them here too.

    The address is 1120 Little Yarra Road, Three Bridges. There's an apple orchard at the front, just drive down the track and you'll find a clearing at the back to park/camp.

    Yep, turn up and ride. Bring some mates. Put as much or as little air in the tyres as you want.

    Entry fees will be announced soon.
