It was Beachy's task to work out rides for each day of the Rally, Beachy spoke to one of his students who he knew came from Broken Hill with the view of getting the low down on great places to ride. His student told him about "The Broken Hill Riders". This is a group of bike enthusiasts who get together every Sunday and ride off in one direction or another for the simple pleasure of going for a ride.
They have all sorts of bikes, new old, sports, cruisers and everything in between. Apparently they get between 30 and 60 bikes each Sunday. They meet up then head out to a pre-determined spot where they have a Morning Tea trailer [see opening picture on this video] to cater for themselves. Everyone puts in a gold coin and gets coffee, tea and biscuits. We were invited to join them for their ride when we were in Broken Hill as you will see in this video clip. It may not have been a thrilling curving scenic ride, but it was a lot of fun to join these Broken Hill Bikers. We rode out along the Barrier Highway to a rest spot on the edge of the road for our break. Talking to the group we were able to find out about their rides and bikes.
