MBCNSW May 2021 night drive to Bilpin

Last night was the monthly MBCNSW May 2021 Night drive.   This month we did a repeat of our very successful November 2020 drive to Bilpin.    As with last time, we met in Windsor and then headed up to the Apple pie cottage for a late dessert.

Unlike the warm summer weather of last year, it was a little colder last night.   Only one brave soul (our club president) did the drive with the top down, with temperatures ranging between 5-13C.    Probably due to the cooler weather, the turn out was a bit smaller, but we still have 11 people on the drive.

This time instead of heading up through Richmond, we took a back road through Freemans Reach.   It was a much nicer drive and one I would do again.  The drive up to Bilpin is very pleasant at night with minimal trucks to get stuck behind and a lack of traffic in general.
