The Capital Tour

For the fifth installment of the Biblio Turismo annual ride were heading to the Australian Capital in November 2010!!!

CLick here for the 2010 Biblio Turismo Ride Itinerary !!!


Biblio Turismo is on again.

We are on our way to our Nation’s Capital. The Cruising the Capital Tour
will leave Campbelltown on the 11th November at 9.30am.

Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way.
Yeah go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all your guns at once
And explode into space.

If you work in a NSW public library come with us by motorbike, scooter or car to Canberra along the pleasant back roads of the Southern Highlands. As you race past the bucolic scenes of grazing cattle you can enjoy each other’s company. Make new friends or just ride like you stole it.

Come discover Mittagong, Goulburn, Braidwood and Queanbeyan get to know your state and meet fellow librarians who will greet you with scones and tea and talk the night away over smooth wines and great tasting food.

We are real riders, rain or shine, sleet or snow WE GO. Refer to previous rides to see how much fun we have.

Canberra will be an exciting day though a short ride of only 100 k. This is your opportunity to visit the Tidbinbilla tracking station, see some of their new public libraries, visit the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Studies Library, lunch at the National Library and be a guest at the Parliament House.

Haven’t you ladies always wanted to walk around Parliament House in your black leathers and meet a few senators for afternoon tea? I’m sure the men do.

If you live in the ACT, please join us for the day, the more the merrier. If you work in a library or know someone who does, you are invited. Remember you can come by scooter, bike or car. This is a publicity ride so the more of us the better the publicity.
We will spend the three nights in a motel in either Queanbeyan or the ACT.

On Saturday
I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin’ with the wind
And feelin’ that I’m under

And so to Cooma. One hundred ks down the road. Last one in town pays for morning tea. A visit with our southern cousins.


Like a true nature’s child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wannna die

And so off to Cabramurra NSW highest township for a photo op.

Before you get to have lunch a bit more hard riding so the females in the group can show us how wild they are.

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Off to Jindabyne and then Thredbo for lunch.

Back to our motel for a final dinner and some cool ale before an early start Sunday and back to our Walter Mitty lives as humble librarians.

So if you want a wild weekend you can tell your grandchildren about, plan to be at Campbelltown at 9am on the 11 November.

You pay for all your own accommodation meals etc. We give you a free t shirt to celebrate the event. Although the event is organised by Gosford City Council and is sponsored by Keith Ainsworth Booksellers, all the responsibility is yours.
Make sure your vehicle is suitable for the trip, take a mobile phone and as few clothes as you need. Remember the lighter you are the faster you can go.

Dust off your helmets, fill up your tanks and pack your smile, it's time to meet our colleagues in the ACT and celebrate all that is great in the world of libraries whilst enjoying the exhilleration of two wheel motorized travel aboard the greatest invention since sliced bread....the motorcycle!!!

If you want to join the ten of us already going then email me now so we can make final preparations.
