    Hi all, after numerous requests to run a GOR trip, I've come up with an itinerary/route that I think you'll like :playful:

    The long range weather forecast looks good, so it's time to head out again, this time for a cruise along our scenic south-west coast. This ride will be structured to allow newer riders a chance to experience what it's like to ride in a group, on some of our nicest coastline, knowing there'll be a few experienced riders amongst them to offer support and advice.

    There'll be ample points along the way where we'll be pausing to take a break, have a chat and grab some photo's. I'll be leading this ride at a sedate and cruisey pace, and like any other ride, no rider is ever expected to ride beyond their abilities or venture out of their comfort zone and no-one gets left behind, you are here to enjoy yourself. A portion of this ride will be heading inland through the Otways where there's a mix of straights and also plenty of fun twisty sections :sneaky:

    **If any Geelong based riders would like to come, there'll be a brief stop at BP Waurn Ponds where you can join in.

    Proposed route: http://goo.gl/maps/GAzLx

    Corner marking system will be operating and I'll be looking for offers from anyone who would like to TEC (Rider at rear who helps out a rider who has stopped for any reason and also does their best to keep traffic from getting too close to the group) :unsure:

    I have sourced accommodation in Warrnambool at a place that allows us to park our bikes safely away at night close to our units, and depending on numbers, most bikes will be under cover. Then it's an easy stroll to dinner and cafes as it's very close to the centre of town. Towels and linen are provided.

    Numbers attending this ride will be limited, so to secure a spot please PM me for banking details as soon as you're able to confirm (y)

    Amendments will be made to this opening post from time to time, so please check back here frequently for any changes, thankyou :) :)
