June 16, 2019 from 8:30am to 4pm
Oink oink! Toot toot!We’re off to the Pig and Whistle in Trentham East for lunch. This quaint 1940s hotel sits at an isolated intersection amongst a farmland setting once famous for potato growing in the area’s rich red volcanic soil. The food at this hotel has been personally road tested by Pete, Jo, Noel and David and determined to be several cuts above standard pub fare. Ride description:This is a cracker of a…See More

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. This is a pleasant cruise suitable for all sized Vespa - and all riders. New members - a great ride for you too. Lal Lal was a family drive when I was…See More

A quick one, while everyone's away. A whirl through some beautiful roads from Eltham, through Nutfield and Arthur's Creek, then across to Beveridge for lunch. Being Easter, this ride will probably be small, and the traffic conditions light. With some beautiful back roads it is suitable for all Vespa, with only a couple of necessary fast stretches. So please don't leave those oldies in the garage. Here is the…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!
