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

Jindivick with the Gippsland gang Sunday 17 June at Jindivick Cafe, 1055 Jacksons Track, Jindivick

June 17, 2018 from 8:15am to 4pm
Let's catch up with the club’s Gippsland chapter and go back to Jindi. After this event you'll wish you had grown up there so let this ride implant an idyllic false memory of a carefree bare-footed rural childhood in a very pretty part of Victoria. As we need to book a table for lunch, please confirm your attendance ASAP.DestinationThis is a pleasant 220km day ride to an out-of-the-way pocket of west Gippsland that one hardly ever has a reason to visit. Jindivick is a small hamlet which sits…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!
