There will be two groups riding up.

Slower or smaller capacity scooters or for those who want to enjoy scenery cruising at 75-90 kms/hr will leave 15 mins later.

Both groups will ride via Exford, Glenmore Road, Mount Egerton, Buninyong, Glenelg Hwy, Skipton, Mount William Rd and Moyston.

Coming home on Sunday will be same route in reverse.  Departure time will be determined once we find out what the program is for the morning!

See you there. :)

Back roads for the G'Town folk and will liaise (when Tufan is back from his Scooter tour of India) regarding either a meet up point with Group 1 or meet at Halls Gap. What time is Friday night dinner planned for pls? (sorry if I missed it somewhere)

We will all meet at the Caltex and it has been decided that we will ALL do the backroads route.

However, we will be asking riders on the bigger bikes or who are happy to sit on 90kms to join the first group who will leave first.

Shortly followed by all those who want a slightly slower ride that suits their vespas.

Once you arrive at the Grampians View Cottages, you can go to Reception where they have a list of the room allocations for smooth checkin experience.

For those who haven't had enough riding for the day, there will be a nice jaunt up the Mountain to check out some of the scenic views across the Grampians.

Dinner will be provided at the accommodation site.  $15 p/h to be paid on the night and I am sure you will be well looked after by our hosts Rob and Fiona.  BYO drinks and alchohol.

I will be sending a final email to all attendees soon so keep an eye out.

Cheers Julie

I'll join the back roads group. I will meet you all near the railway crossing at Yendon, between Mt Egerton & Buninyong fuel stop. 3km from my home. :-) Can give me an E.T.A?
