https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/1-dayer-2018-geraldton-wa-registration-42262385934

This is the official 2018 Black Dog Ride route. It is a little different this year but it is a nice run with good roads. We have 2 stops along the way; the second one has nice clean toilets. Our support vehicles will have icy cold drinks to refresh and rehydrate on the stops. We will be stopping at Northampton Middle Pub for a bbq lunch before heading back to the Wintersun for raffle draws, a couple of items to auction, some trophy presentations and then relax to the sound of Cooky and the Toadman.

7.00 - 9.00 am On the day Registrations       
9.00 - 9.15 am Riders Briefing
9.30 am Ride Departs
10.30ish First stop
11.00ish Resume ride
11.45ish Second Stop
12.15ish Ride Resumes
1.00ish Northampton - lunch stop
3.00ish Resume ride
3.45/4.00 Finish Ride

So as per map we leave the Wintersun and head to Utakarra Road which will take us out to head towards Mullewa. We then turn left onto Tenindewa Road which will take us through to Yuna, then onto East Bowes Road which will takes us onto Northampton. 
On the way back we head south on the NWCH and then turn left onto Howatharra/Nanson Road which will take us to Chapman Valley Road where we will turn right. We follow that through to Waggrakine, around the roundabout to the WIntersun where the ride will finish.

Please note times may vary a little. We hope to see everybody on the day for another great ride and to bring everyone together for such an important cause.
