  1. I'm taking a break from work on Monday - what better way to spend than to go on a nice long ride.

    Route - Kew -> Yarra Glen -> Healsville -> Buxton -> Taggerty -> Eildon.
    Start will be around 10am.

    Open to a few others joining in...
  2. I'd love to but getting off work on a Monday is impossible. Make sure you run up Skyline for the view while you're there, just watch the random gravel.

  4. I've not seen him lying across the road, perhaps I'm not riding fast enough.

  5. There's just something wonderful about taking a Monday off work :)
    The weatherman promises the weather is going to be good.
  6. Hi Spec
    May be interested in tagging along, will confirm tonight, as my son is playing a Grand Final today and if they win. I may not be in a good riding condition.

  15. This would have much more preferable than looking after a sick kid..

    Always love taking a sickie to go riding.
  16. Yeah, it was a fantastic day !
    Really enjoyed black spur & parts of skyline road to Eildon.
    Skyline initial bits were quite bumpy and the final sections near Eildon were under repair - hope they fix that soon...

    Going to put a few photos on the other thread....
