Christmas Lights Night Ride Saturday 22/12/2018

Posted by Amanda on December 19, 2018 at 3:30 PM

Hi everyone, hope your Christmas planning isn’t too draining and that you’re finding time to keep sane.

Ado and I have been on a few trips to plan our Christmas Lights Night Ride … and this is what we have come up with.

Leaving Yamanto Maccas at 700 pm ish- we know that the advertised ride says 6:30 pm but what’s the use of looking at lights if the night sky isn’t with us.

We will slow drive-by visit the lights around Ipswich region, and ride to Diane Court Springfield where we will stop for around 15 minutes (there are quite a few houses in a row we can visit). We will then head back to Ipswich for a special visit to the winning street Nova Court. The owners are allowing the bikes to park in their driveway, but unfortunately any tin tops following will have to find theirown park on the street. For the tin tops…there is no parking in Nova Court – so park in the surrounding streets.

We envisage the ride to be approx. 66 klms and we will be on the bikes and in the tin tops for approx. 1 ½ hours. With the stops, we’re looking at around 2 hours.

At the end we invite you to join us at Yamanto Shopping Cent- we thought we might park in the top carpark and visit the Yamanto Tavern for a little drinkie or coffee n cake. Maccas is just a few steps away if you want to visit there.

BTW we will bring the big school bell with us – so listen out for the wonderful sound … when you hear it it’s time for stands up.
