Six years ago, a subcommittee of Yea and Alexandra Rotary Club members first met to plan an inaugural ride on the Great Victorian Rail Trail. The three objectives were to get more people riding the trail, more visitors into Murrindindi Shire, and to raise funds for the YMOM program, and other youth projects.
A very successful event on Saturday 17th April met all those objectives.
Close to 150 riders turned out in perfect weather to experience country hospitality at its best, and judging from the favourable feedback, they are likely to return with friends in future.
Thanks to our small committee-Ian Gibb, John Cannon, Steve Costley and Melinda for their organisation, to our members who filled the roster for registration and marshalling duties, to Ian for mechanical support and pest control (many European was nests were treated) Friend of Rotary Graeme Robb, was on hand to provide First Aid; RC Yea looked after the barbecue lunch, and Nutfield experience.
