Bright Weekend 2016



It’s only 4 weeks until our Bright weekend in February (Friday 12 – Sunday 14). Those who have been before know all about it, but here is some info for newer BUGs.
This weekend is about relaxing, riding, eating, shopping & doing whatever you want.
We all stay at the Bright Big 4 caravan park in Bright in cabins, caravans, buses, tents and the park gives us a 10% discount. Some book in for Frid/Sat nights, others make an extra long weekend of it, others just for the Saturday night. I have already spoken to the caravan park, so they are aware of the BUGs coming. If you are a single rider or leaving hubby/wife behind, there are usually people sharing cabins so just ask around. I know there is a female rider cabin already.
We usually have a group BBQ meal at the park’s camp kitchen on Friday night and we may be doing the same thing on the Saturday night this year also, instead of going out to tea. It’s probably cooler at the park than in the pub.

Those daring 7 peakers usually ride up Mt Buffalo on Friday and Falls Creek on Sunday. Other rides during the weekend have been Myrtleford to Lake Buffalo, Bright to Harrietville, out the Buckland Valley, up Tawonga Gap, out to Wandiligong Pub for Happy hour, along the rail trail. You can do as much riding or as little as you like, on whatever sort of bike you want. Rides are usually decided the night before as people throw ideas about and groups form.
Come along and join in for a fun weekend.
Can I have some idea as to who is planning to go and when you are arriving please?
Guys just remember it’s Valentines Day on Sunday – flowers and chocolates always go down well.
