Discussion in 'VIC' at netrider.net.au started by MT1, Jan 3, 2012.

  1. meet point > new maccas in Ringwood.
    no not the old one at Eastland. the new mc mega 24/7 maccas, where the holden dealership used to be.

    time > anytime you want prior to 9:45am. won't be there after then. will be gone already.

    who > me, you, and whoever else rolls up. all welcome. level 0-100 inclusive.



    how > no tec, no corner marking, no ride leader, no rules. you can collect antlers on the freeway if you want. just don't crash into me.

    where > just point to point , Ringhole maccas > Portsea pub by lunch time.
    so it's bang smack down Eastlink, right at Thomson, hit the coast at Carrum, follow the shoreline down to Portsea. around 2 hours one way probably.

    why> need to get bread and milk

  9. not a bad road, with the ocean to your right. but traffic holiday period, woah.

    the good news is, Loretta finally released the penguin she caught at PI last week.
    had about as much fun as we could with it.
    but time for the little fella to swim home.

  10. Sure you wouldn't prefer going the back way through Hastings and Flinders? Far more enjoyable route and less traffic...

  12. I actually enjoy taking the Esplanade Rd route from Mornington Main St end all the way to Sorrento/Portsea (lunch or quick stop at Sorrento Pier) before backtracking the same way until Boneo Rd. Taking the right turn reveals some wonderful roads around Boneo, Cape Schank, Flinders, Hastings with a mandatory stop every time into Tyabb Westernport Aero Club (touch with my past).
    Beautiful roads down that way.
    Sometimes, I might vary it slightly with a run up Arthur's Seat.
    I agree 100% about the traffic on the way down to Portsea - arse-numbing, frustrating and sometimes VERY slow, usually with radar guns/mobile speed cameras positioned inconspicuously....
    Out of action for the next 2 weeks (work commitments aka sweating, stressing, studying) but once done, looking fwd to a jolly down these parts again.
    :)

  18. That's the way we took in, through Mornington with a coffee stop at Main St then followed the coast line all the way to Portsea. Was a bit of holiday traffic in Rye but a good way to practice your filtering skills hehe Took Mooroolduc Hwy & Eastlink Fwy home. Not as fun but quick
