    The Alternative Chocolate Ride
    I am still to work out the details on this but this Sunday I am running a ride with a visit to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery. This ride will be learner friendly. So if you are finding it hard to get a leave pass then let your significant other know you will return bearing chocolate.

    When: Sunday 24th May 9:45am for a 10:15am departure.
    Meet Point: Saint Helena Woolworths Petrol 307 Diamond Creek Road St Helena VIC 3088
    Approximate Finish time: 4:00

    Probable Route, Humevale, Flowerdale, Strath Creek Yea, Black Spur, Chocolaterie, Diamond Creek

  13. Did someone say chocolate?
  14. This place also has one of the best scones I've ever had. The jam they serve is made locally and it's just awesome...

    Coffee is pretty good too. :)

  16. Hope to see a few along tomorrow. I will decide on the details of the route depending on our numbers and timing. The extras on the route which I haven't decided on yet are:

    The tight Humevale route out of Whittlesea
    The Whangarewen Road. (Highly Probable)
    The Eildon backroad and Dam wall.

    And of course there will be chocolate. :)
  17. cjvfrcjvfr - can I put in a request for some white chocolate with raspberries please ;-)
