Well done to all the Lancelin riders.  I’m told the weather proved to be a challenge at the start but all good for the rest of the ride and the scones were yummy. Looked like the burger and chips at the pub lived up to their usual expectations.  A big thank you to the support crew, Bill & Lill from the Willowbrook Farm Caravan Park for their hospitality and scrumptious scones and a special thanks to Kelli O’Neil who spent countless hours organising the event, we really appreciate everything you do Kelli, you make our club a better one.
