  • Location: Melbourne to Bendigo via Kyneton
  • Latest Activity: Mar 29

This is a back-roads route to Bendigo, with the intention of joining our Bendio crew for the Easter celebrations there, and participate in the Easter Parade too.

Being Easter Saturday we're expecting the roads to be extra quiet, so it will be a pleasant ride ride through Bolinda, Kerrie, Hanging Rock, Kyneton for a coffee break and refuel, then up through Metcalfe, Sutton Grange, and Sedgwick to Bendigo. Around 160 kms all up. And we won't be on any of the main highways.

Suitable for all Vespa and rider experience. A PX200 will lead the ride.

Attending the Easter Parade means you need accommodation. Please read the information below. The club has some limited reserved accommodation, but at some stage we'll have to let it go. You're welcome to come along to watch and join in the laughs even if you are not participating in the Parade.


Assembly Ground Cafe, 104 Fletcher St, Essendon (Right on the big Essendon roundabout) Map

Departure is at 9.00 am. AF1QipPH1VeOku1msYQ9vWEg7F1egYFMzPdjQin-_Gu6=s680-w680-h510?profile=RESIZE_400x

You'll need to arrive by 8.30 am if you want a coffee before we head off, or earlier if you are thinking of breakfast. (The cafe opens from 7 AM). If you want to meet us along the way then please coordinate with Greg.

Accommodation Options for 30 Mar - 1 April in Bendigo - Please book Now. 

The other option is to book something for yourself, but being Easter the options are limited and expensive.

    Greg / Julie,

    Looking forward to the "Backroads to Bendigo" ride tomorrow.

    Just a day trip for me.  I'll be riding back home in the arvo.



    Hey David

    if you would like to ride Chubby Checker PX200 up, the offer is there. He needs a good twist.
