Long Thursday Ride 2016
Our branch's first meeting was held on Wednesday 4th October 2000. The driving force behind the St George Sutherland Group's creation and the group's first president was Don Phinn. Fiften people attended the meeting. Today our meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month. The St George Sutherland Branch holds regular group rides and social events.
As with all branches in The Ulysses Club, the club is primarily a social club for mature riders who enjoy a slightly different lifestyle than that many people perceive of us "oldies". We enjoy a friendship and bond amongst members and just let our hair down (if we still have any) and enjoy life.
Our motto - Grow Old Disgracefully pretty much sums us up. We love a laugh and a ride on our bikes. We either go solo or take our partners. We have women riders who keep up with the blokes - (well nearly). We ride anything from Harleys to Hondas, scooters, vintage, classic or brand spankers.
We'd love to see you as a part of our branch if you enjoy fun, wind in the face and most weekends with a ride to somewhere, whether it be long or short. Our New Members rides are specifically tailored for.....New Members!!! Anyone can go, but we take a shorter run, mark a few corners, have a bit of a talk and stop for coffee and cakes. Have another talk, then maybe go home. It's all very casual.Our day rides can vary from short to long, depending on what the ride leader has planned for us. The long weekend rides and overnight stays are a hoot. We go all over the place and see many sights that you just don't normally go to - especially in one of those things called a car!
The Ulysses AGM's are a spectacle to behold for the new members. 5000 or so bikes, all converging on one town at the same time for a week long party. AGM's are held all over Australia. Past locations have included Broken Hill, Mt Gambier, Snowy Mountains, Mudgee, Canberra, Tasmania, Coffs Harbour, Townsville, Penrith, Albany. Newcastle, Mildura, Maryborough, Alice Springs, Wodonga and Phillip Island to name
Whether you join St George Sutherland or another
branch, enjoy the friendship and riding. We'd
love to see you here with us, so call someone
or just turn up at a meeting
and say Hi
The Telemachus Medal is designed to acknowledge members contributions to the Branch with which they have chosen to be aligned. Whilst still maintaining a meritorious standard its intention is to recognise service which is above and beyond the normal expectations of any member.
