The route may vary, depending on the weather.

Fabulous turn out for your ride Darren and thank you so much for organising it.  I's with David, I loved seeing all the different farm animals wondering what the heck they were looking at and then bolting or running in the paddocks with us... although the little fluffy dog that ran across the road in front of Greg who had a 4 Wheel drive right up his rear was extremely lucky he is alive today...that was a scary sight to see in my mirror.

A promise well kept: riding Westwards, splendid winter weather and a wander in areas rarely visited. Thanks Darren for finding us those great roads. Loved seeing all the farm animals and their reaction to our Vespas.

I have just done a recce on most of the route and I can confirm that there are no gravel sections apart from some roadworks, but they should be completed by the time we go through. It's only a very small bit anyway.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, I'm not 100% certain of what lunch options will be available when we get to Creswick. However, there are take away places in Creswick that are open. If in doubt, bring a picnic! :-)
