[Melb] - Saturday 11 June Ride - to somewhere ?

Discussion in 'VIC' at netrider.net.au started by doonx, Jun 10, 2005.

  1. I can't make the Sunday ride

    Does anyone want to have a blat somewhere on Saturday ? Not an early start as I'm out for dinner and drinks tonight, say 10am-10:30am getaway ?



    Weather permitting.

  3. Saturday's bad, you free Monday?
    Thinking of popping down Geelong way and fit in a couple of back roads to the GOR.

  5. ForecastFox (plug-in for Firefox) tells me it should be fine (only 22% chance of rain 18degrees down to 13 degrees)

    BOM doesn't seem so optimistic

  6. COME ON YOU SISSIES...

    REMEMBER THE HALLS GAP RIDE... Rainy, dry, rainy, sunny, etc.. it was fun... now, for the speech.

    We ride because we can. We ride because we are men. Are we to let the weather dictate when we can or cannot ride... To this, I say NO.

    Come my brothers and sisters, lift yourselves from your pathetic sun searching rides and come to one that is truly an advanture.... A ride that may be dry, wet, cold, icy, snowy..... Who knows, but that is the excitement of it all.... I am a motorycle rider, I am an adventurer, I am a man amongst mice.... So, step forth and become men.....!!!!!

    Ride with us tomorrow or forever be known for thy failure.......

  11. I chose to ignore that part of Doonks post......if I'm putting the geelong boys up for the night and also getting up at the crack of dawn (I"m definately not a morning person) then he can drag his arse out of bed a few hours earlier.

  14. Helldog and me are keen for a Saturday ride....... But is this ride friendly for someone with my experience/inexperience (just off L's)????

    I don't want to be holding the group up all day

  15. Cool, excellent.... We will give details at coffee tonight.

    OK, the blackspur is a relatively easy ride. Very smooth since road re-surfacing. Just take your time and dont ride too hard and you will be fine.

    Mansfield to Mt Buller is the BEST run. VERY smooth, quite wide with some killer switchbacks. Again, just be careful and ride within ability.

    No real stopping until we get to Mansfield though and then it is for fuel and a sprint up the mountain for lunch.
