This sunday a few of my buddies are heading down to Phillip Island as a kind of post-exam fling. Unlucky for me I have my final exam on Monday and so will head over that afternoon to meet them. Given that I'm gonna be on my own I'm toying with the idea of riding down (weather permitting) so I just wanted to ask you guys for some advice on a trip of this distance. No doubt many of you have tackled this ride to catch the GP but for a learner that's just been commuting for the past few weeks it seems a little daunting. A quick check of citysearch suggested that the most direct route would be via the south eastern then on to the gippsland hwy etc. Is this an easy enough ride, provided I make sure to stop and rest regularly and keep the snacks and fluids up?
