Meeting of The Tribes – 2nd and 3rd November

andy bike outside 2Delatite Wines is delighted to be part of this great inaugural event in the High Country. Unfortunately although I do own a bike and used to ride to work sometimes (many years ago) it’s been a while since I pulled on my padded shorts ( no Lycra for me!) so I won’t be peddling in 2013. But to enter into the spirit we’ll have a wine sale all weekend and wine tastings up on Mt Buller……so come on up and be a part of it!

The Meeting of the Tribes is a cycling event for anyone on two wheels without a motor. It doesn’t matter if you are a mountain biker, elite rider, cafe racer, MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra) or inner city hipster fixie rider.
