October 7, 2018 from 10am to 3:30pm
A good short day ride to beautiful Mount Macedon using back roads, and a lot of secret secret short cuts. You'll be amazed to get there and back without a highway.  (Leaving aside Hanging Rock for a later event.) 170 Kms all up > See the Route Map here.However, I will probably change this route to make it more interesting. Suitable for all bikes and rider experience. It's especially good for new riders, or…See More

Mystery Ride Part II at Melbourne 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

Hi Les. If you would like to borrow a bike to get you around in the meantime, I can lend you one of ours. We have plenty between us, and you can borrow my 300 to get around town, or do the Round The Bay. Really no problems this end. We have plenty of ride options here - and I can feel the pain of not being able to ride!
