At the respectful hour of 10:45 am we meet at the Sutton bakery for coffee before setting out on a two-hour run through the Southern Tablelands country side before ending up at the Brindabella Hills winery for a late lunch.
The weather was perfect; 25 degrees and sunny.
When I planned this run I was not expecting many takers as it was going to travel over known roads and end up just back in the ACT border. But 12 cars and 22 members agreed to join Cecelia and I on our run. Maybe it was the start time or the promise of fine wines for lunch.
We proceed through Gundaroo, Gunning and onto Dalton were we stopped for the photo of the cars parked along the side of the street.
Continuing onto Jerrawa and then down the Hume highway and onto the Barton Highway. No need to stop for coffee as this was a short run.
Safety back inside the ACT we turned off to take the winding road to the winery.
The winery is set overlooking the Murrumbidgee River and the views are impressive.
Some members had not been to the winery before so after taking in the views we were all seated for a quality meal with assigned wines if you chose that option.
Members could make their own way home after lunch but several of us stayed for some time just taking in the relaxed atmosphere and very pleasant company.
