Saturday November 10
So many beautiful tree-lined roads, national parks and of course, plenty of hills and punchy climbs.
Whether you want a good training ride or to experience beautiful roads just 1 hour from Melbourne, this ride delivers!
You can ride at your own pace with the security of two ride hosts and a support vehicle. The group will re-gather at designated spots and we always plan for a mid-way coffee and toilet stop.
Please bring good front and rear lights and bright clothing for being seen. Whilst drivers are familiar with cyclists in the area, there can often be morning fog.
