Lunch at the Wombat Pub
If all you know about Wombat is that it is just up the road from Wallendbeen, and not too far from Nubba or Murringo (not to mention Berthong and Thuddungra), then this is the mid-week run for you. A crisp run through the South West Slopes and a chance to learn a little more about our local(ish) region could be just what you need.
Want more? You've got it! What could be better than a chance to experience Jon Chapuis' run leadership, the company of a bunch of fellow Club mates and a counter lunch at a ridgy didge Aussie country pub (first trading in 1877, it is reputed to have the longest running continuous liquor licence in NSW)?
Jon will drop the starter's flag at McDonald's in Conder, and take the long way to Yass for coffee at Roses Cafe. We'll miss the boring Barton Highway and instead travel the back roads through Tharwa, past Tidbinbilla and the Cotter and head to Yass via the Mountain Creek and Wee Jasper Roads.
After recaffeinating, we will head up the Burley Griffin Way and Wombat Road to our lunch stop. All up, around 200 km of terrific country roads.
The lunch venue is fine, and there are more than a few Club members who can vouch for the quality of the pub refreshments.
We need at least 15 people for the pub to open, so please register early with Jon.
