    Hi folks,

    Tomorrow looks like a cracker, best in months, so I'm going to be officially off sick and going for a ride. Thinking from Warrandyte thru Kinglake, then Yea, then Eildon, and back via Marysville and Black Spur/Healesville.

    Normally I ride solo but it's such a nice forecast, thought I'd see if anyone wants to join me.

    BitSarBitSar PetesulPetesul Lazy LibranLazy Libran Stever42Stever42 and others, any takers?

    Probably meet outside Warrandyte Grand Hotel in the parking lot at 9.15am, aim to leave by 9.30
    Please advise if you're interested so I have an idea who might pitch up.

  2. If only my tyres had been replaced today as I had planned.
    Now it's happening tomorrow, otherwise I would have liked to go on this ride.
  3. Nuts! Next time....

    Note to self - don't book tyres in for changing on best weather day of week lol...

  4. Sounds very similar to the loop I did on Monday.
    Weather looks promising, apart from the windy conditions predicted - should be a cracker of a ride...
    You might want to do black spur/healsville/marysville on the way to Eildon, instead of the return - this way the onward journey will be uphill & return leg will be faster...

    [Aug 15, 2016] Ride to Eildon (Kew, Vic)
  5. It is almost your loop precisely, I love these roads lol...
  6. Sorry fella, I too would love to take a sick day and hit up a ride on such a beaut looking day but I've just signed all the contracts on a bunch of major changes at work and I need to be around. Good news is I have signed them now so come summer I should be able to drop a day or two.
