19th October Ride to Ebenezer
(ride report from Andrew Gunn)
Alan, Jim and Vic at the Tractor 828 Cafe
Vic phoned me last week and asked if I would like to join him and a few other club members for a ride to Ebenezer on Friday. “Meet at the Parkleigh Hungry Jack’s – 10:am” he says.
“Where are we going?” I ask.
“Ebenezer”, says Vic in his usual, expansive way.
“Don ‘t you know? How long have you been living in Sydney?” I explain to Vic that I’ve been living in Sydney since 1982 but I confess to being ignorant about where Ebenezer is, or even of having heard of it.
I found out. Jim and Alan joined with Vic and me after the rendezvous at Hungry Jack’s. Vic arrived on his Yamaha XS 650, Alan on his brand new BMW and Jim on his trusty Yamaha Virago. I was riding my Yamaha FJR (feeling slightly guilty about having left the BSA Lightning languishing back in the garage). We took a very enjoyable ride out west to Windsor, turning right at Pitt Town Road where the Australian Hotel is located on the corner.
From there we travelled along Cattai Road, Wisemans Ferry Road and through Maroota (I had heard of this place). Turning left, we found Sackville Ferry Road and crossed the Hawkesbury River at Sacksville (by ferry).
Half a kilometre on from the ferry we found the Tractor 828 Cafe on our left (the Cafe is in the heart of Ebenezer, the district) and decided this would be a nice place to stop for lunch and watch the grass grow for a while. The grass, having grown, was also being rolled up as turf by a turf cutting machine as we watched.
An hour later and we were on our way again, with the fine weather beginning to warm up considerably. We pointed our trusty steeds towards Windsor for the return journey.
At 130 Km round trip it was altogether a thoroughly enjoyable outing. The Hills Shire in the Hawkesbury region has some stunning scenery to be enjoyed on such a fantastic spring day.
This ride was so enjoyable that I repeated it a few days later with my partner Ruth on the back as pillion with me!
