[Melb] Beginner ride, Sth Gippsland Area. Sat 3rd Sept.

Discussion in 'VIC' at netrider.net.au started by firefling, Aug 15, 2005.

  1. Hi all,

    Mouth and I have decided to do another beginner/learner ride to Wonthaggi via Poowong->Korumburra->Inverloch and having lunch at Wonthaggi pub.

    Please have full tanks at meeting point and don't forget to wear warm clothes as it is near the coastal region. If the weather looks to be crap, we'll most likely postpone the ride.

    Date: Sat 3rd Sept
    Meeting at: Cranbourne McDonalds (Cnr Camms Rd and Sth Gippy Hwy Melway: 133 J2)
    Time: 9:45am leaving 10:00am sharp!
    Duration: 200+ kms

  2. Sounds great, I'll be there :wink:

    As it's a learner friendly ride, it will be a casual pace below or equal to the posted speed limits. Anyone looking for high speed runs, choose another ride :)

    The route has a couple of small (only a few km's) sections of tight twisties that are good for learners, and is mostly open and flowing country roads. ~30km of dual lane highway out of and into Cranbourne.

  3. According to the Weather Channel website with the 28 day rain forecast you should be ok. If I can get out of bed then I will join you for this one. Oh well, early start gives me more time to get home.

    :):):):):)
