Spin Around Lal Lal - Sun 5 May at Lal Lal

May 5, 2019 from 9:30am to 3pm
A spin across the tablelands exploring back roads and some little visited places - from the forgotten town of Morrisons, then up and across to Lal Lal, and across to Buninyong, via Mount Buninyong. Landscapes, spectacular views, and history. What's in Lal Lal? - the old station, nearby Lal Lal falls, and the hotel where we'll probably have lunch.

Jindivick with Gippsland gang - Sunday 17 February at Mitcham to Jindivick, Gippsland

February 17, 2019 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!
