Every Saturday morning, Rotorua Ulyssians meet at the Lakeside Café at 10.30 am for a “Big Breakfast” for some, and a tea/coffee for others. It is a great time for a general chin wag. Visiting Ulyssians are very welcome to join in the frivolity.
Most rides leave from the Rotorua Lakeside Cafe at 10:00 am. Please read each ride with care as the times and leaving place may be different.
The following are all “Weather Permitting” rides. If you are not sure if the run may be cancelled because of inclement weather, phone the Rider In Charge (RIC)
April 26 : Sunday
Tony Baker’s Poker run.
There will be a briefing at the Lakeside Café at 9.30am.
The Ride will start after the briefing.
RIC : Tony Baker
Each rider will be dealt a hand of 5 cards.
The RIC will stop at certain places where riders may exchange their “useless” cards for the same number from the RIC
There will be about 6 of these “certain places” in the Ride.
We may have our lunch, including takeaways etc, in an outside enclosed area with tables and chairs by walking to our left through the restaurant. This area has been reserved by management for Rotorua Ulyssians.
From the Maketu Beachside Café, riders will follow the RIC back to Rotorua via Manawahe Rd., Lake Rotoma etc.
The winner will be decided at a pl;ace in Rotorua where the ride will finish.
