Mystery Ride Part II at Melbourne's northern suburbs

August 5, 2018 from 10am to 2:30pm
This is part II of the Mystery Ride organised 3 weeks ago. After losing three riders in a traffic jam along the way (my apologies) and a few more at our lunch stop, our group dwindled down to the Magnificent Seven. The event was rather too jam packed for one day so there are still plenty of things to see. Hence, welcome to part II of this ride but with less mystery. Ride Description:We’ll meet at a cafe that’s new to our club in Preston. Our first stop is Edwardes Lake. Next its off to…See More

Honest, I was just cleaning it and it went off.…
