Event Description

Haven't done this for a long time so it's a repeat ride to Meredith and Steiglitz. We will also be exploring some different roads as I research a later ride down to the volcanoes near Colac. Done this one before? Do it again. New to the Club? This is a great first ride and suitable for all bikes. Some excellent roads and riding - it's time for some good stretches and to get those scooters purring. Calling you all out to ride!

Departing from the usual BP Servo, Geelong Road in Brooklyn at 9 am. Fill your tank here because we are taking the long way to Meredith. >Map and Visual/a>

We'll head up towards Ballan but switch back along a forgotten road to Meredith. Don't miss this - just beautiful with some surprises around the town of Morisson.

Arrive in Meredith at approx 10.45 after 110 km. It's time for coffee, look around, and fuel top up.

Through the hills to Steiglitz. The second home of Sandy and John Dynon from the original club. We'll have a quick look around what was once a thriving gold mining town. Bring your camera.

Then it's down to the Anakie Roadhouse for Lunch arriving about 1 pm. It doesn't look much from the outside but inside there is a bar and cafe. It has a certain eclectic charm (!)  It has recently changed hands again and it's friendly and well stocked too.

We'll get away by 2 pm and get back via Werribee to Melbourne at 3 pm, well before any expected rain. Err... do you really want to visit the fairy park? Please let us all know.

We'll finish the ride in Yarraville and say our bye byes.

Ride suitable for all scooters and rider experience. A couple of 100 kph short stretches. Back roads - no freeway, just nice. Great first ride out with the Club if you are ready. Click the image below to view / download the route on Plotaroute.
