The time is near!
The Annual IBA Australia Memorial Rides are on again.

The memorial rides are held all around the world every year, to honour past members and fallen riders.

In Australia we hold them in September to align with the anniversary of the passing of David “Davo’ Jones, founding member of FarRiders, FarRider #1, and IBA member #22575.

This year will mark the 7th Anniversary of Davo's passing.

Your memorial ride (of IBA length) can be in one of two forms:

1. Complete an SS1600 or greater on the route of your choice, on or around the weekend of the 10th-11th of September (within a week either side of these dates).

2. Complete an SS1600 or greater, finishing at, or near, or on the way to Wilmington SA, on or around the 9th – 11th September, and participate in the Memorial Service at the site of the Memorial Plaque, Horrocks Pass Rd, Winninowie SA, on Saturday 10th Sept at 2.00pm.
(Details for the gathering and group ride for this one will be posted in due course).

For either of the attempts at an IBA Memorial Ride, with a dedicated IBA Certificate to be issued, you must register here:
https://rides.jasonjonas.com/regRequest.php?id=372

Anyone wishing to get along to Wilmington to honour Davo and other riders, but cannot complete an IBA ride, are very welcome to join us on Saturday the 10th of September for the day or for the weekend at Wilmington. We would be proud to have you come along.

All official IBA rides must be a minimum of 1,610 kms in 24 hours – SS1600.

All IBA level rides will be certified by Howard Entman of the IBA, as a specific “SS.... Memorial Ride 2016"

In the wording of your certificate, you will have the option of paying tribute to Davo, or to anyone you wish to name on your dedication.

I have a question.
I registered with Jonas but I read somewhere that I had to pay something for the ride. Is this true???

Or have I misunderstood.....and you only have to pay for the certification once the ride is completed??

No payment asked for or required for the registration Kimmie.
Just the usual costs associated with the Certification, directly to IBA.
I'm not sure where you may have read that, but no charges apply here.
When setting up this ride on Ride Master there is capacity to ask for payments, but not on my watch!

Thanks Nico. I think that's where I may have been confused.

Have a plan roughed out, just need to check op hrs on a few servos and book acco for my finish location and get some ride fitness and I'm all good ☺

Loud shirt will be packed and something PINK.

Nico, a while back someone said that the little diner across the road from the pub is out of business.

Is this true and is there an alternative?

LTP and I expressed through Wilmington last Sunday and both thought a new coffee shop was opened nearly opposite the pub. Sorry didn't stop to check it out, no time.

The old cafe looked still closed.

Edited....This looks like it.. Blacksheep At Tuckwells

Correct Russ, the Beautiful Valley Cafe closed down a couple of years ago.
Not sure of the one of which the fatman speaks. I'm passing that way in a week or so, I'll check that out.
Last year we had lunch Saturday at Quorn - very good cafe.
Sunday morning at Wozza's Vault in Melrose. Wozza is a real character, who runs a nice cafe business in the old bank building, hence 'vault'.

Plan is done.
GPS has new maps
GPS & Scala have new software updates (hopefully will fix the bugs I've been having lately)
Been riding to work....I know not the ride fitness I need but it's better than nothing & got out for a little ride this weekend.

So I take it after the Service at Davo's Plague we go back to Wilmington Hotel and I'll watch some of you drink copious amounts of Red Wine (seems to be the poison of choice)> We'll have dinner during or at the same time as enjoying our company and reminiscing. The maybe get some sleep.

Sunday the dawn of a new day and maybe some headaches, we head off in our various directions OR this mystery cafe will be visited for breakfast (to soak up some poison...he he he) and enjoy a coffee and raisin toast.
I'm trying to plan the trip home. I have to be back at work on Wednesday.
