It was a bright and early start on Saturday when Marcus and Berni arrived at the Coffee Club in Frankston. Stig soon joined them and after a quick coffee we set off to the pier
carpark. There were plenty of bikes there already with many more constantly arriving. It wasn't long before we found everyone and we formed our own group, consisting of Ross, Vicky, Stig, Merv, Rowan, Steve, Marcus and Berni, in the carpark. Some of the riders
actually contemplated getting a coffee but renegged when they discovered the coffee queue stretched back to Carrum. Only Vicky was brave enough to endure the line-up. We feel she may have a serious caffeine addiction to attempt such an arduous
feat. After the welcome speeches and riders briefing, we saddled up and departed. 430 bikes left Frankston and travelled down the highway and then down Main St. Mornington, where we re-grouped. We then headed down the coast to McCrae where we had another
stop and then on to the Rosebud Secondary College. There was a fantastic spread of food waiting for us thanks to Food For All, the local CWA and several of the Peninsula Ulysses Clubs. One member mentioned that it had all of the basic three
food groups - pies, sandwiches and cakes - what more do you need for the bikers healthy eating pyramid. We delivered our donated gifts, tucked into the lunch and bought some raffle tickets. Stig was lucky enough to win a helmet. It was great day all round. The CRABs had a good ride, we did some marketing for the club and over 1500 gifts were donated by the riders. A great result.
