This ride was of interest to those who like to take a "longer ride" with the ride being the focus not the coffee breaks.

Most Ride to Eat FarRides are planned at 1000km minimum rides. They have to be completed within a 24 hour time frame, be it - say - 500kms on the first day of riding and the second 500kms on the following day - or the full distance in one hit. From start to finish a rider has 24 hours to complete the minimum of 1000kms.
They are not a group ride, there is no route to follow. The purpose of a FarRide is to be at the meeting place (usually an eatery) at the time stated and be able to complete 1000km within a 24hr period.

FarRides are aimed at those who are after a good long days ride and to meet, although briefly, with fellow riders with the same mindset.

This FarRide's meeting place was Thomas Lee Motorcycles, 145 Balo St, Moree, NSW ()

This was the first ever FarRide. There were just 14 participants, three of them pillions. We met at Thomas Lee Motorcycles then had lunch at a cafe in town. Most riders were Queenslanders with a few from NSW, most notably FarRider #2, Michael P, who is still a regular. The ride is memorable for being very cold, with temps below zero around Cunninghams Gap.
