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!
