Sunday, 24 June, 2018 - 09:30 to 13:00

Stops:

504 Centre Rd Bentleigh (Coffee Fix), Arthur's Seat

Estimated Distance:

170km

Occasion:

Arbitrary Ride

Captain:

Sol Leski

Riders:

Sam Blumenstein, Volvi Goldberger, David Halperin, Tony Kaye, Les Kohn, Sol Leski, Rod Rabinov, Simon Rosenbaum, Graham Solomon, Glenn Wainrib


Plan:

Leave Coffee Fix at 9.30am and ride to Arthur's Seat for our annual Memorial Ride for members who have passed. Member Motti Kranz was a big fan of the Arthurs Seat ride and his love of that area was the impetus behind the annual ride.

Motti passed away in 2008 and the list of others who have gone will inevitably grow. A special memorial tribute to John Zilberlicht who passed away this year.

None of them would want us to be sad and down but they will be happy to be riding with us in spirit.

Ride Report:

Wonderful turnout. No rain but cold conditions and often wet roads. Sol led the contingent via the Moorooduc to the top of Arthur's Seat.

The group comprised Sol, Les, Volvi, Alex, David H, Glenn, Tony, Simon R, Graham, Rod, Clive, Jon and Sam. We had more than a minyan so big thanks to those of you who could make it.

We said Kadish at the top facing the beautiful view of Melbourne as the cable cars rolled up and down the mountain.

Unfortunately we have a long list to memorialise...

Bill Borofsky, Luella Efron, Chaim New, Motti Kranz, Batya Simon, Boris Litwinow and John Zilberlicht.
