  1. Ok Ladies and Gentlemen.
    I propose the following.
    Leaving from the Bayswater Rd carpark of Anaconda Outdoor store cnr of Bayswater and Canterbury Rd's Ringwood East at 1030. Melway 64 G3.
    Heading up through Montrose, Kalorama, Mt Dandenong, Olinda, Monbulk, Emerald, Cockatoo, Yellingbo, Woori Yallock to Healsville for lunch/coffee etc. Lunch to be taken at your choice of venue.
    Then From Healsville to Yarra Glen, Christmas Hills, Kangaroo Ground, Warranwood, Ringwood North, Croydon back to the start point.

    Now for more details.
    Start Time is 1030
    all riders to be at start point no later than 1015
    Rider Briefing at 1015
    All riders to be geared up no later than 1025
    Corner markers will be used as will Tail end gunner
    No one is to overtake leader
    No one is to undertake anyone

    Some of the roads to be travelled are twisty and could still be damp and or mossy. Peoples discretion is to be exercised. The Ride Leader (ME) will not travel faster than posted limits.
    There are petrol stations near the start point BP and Mobil. Full Tanks are expected.
    If the weather is unfavourable then the ride will be cancelled.

    Rode this route yesterday. some notes on road conditions.
    Olinda Monbulk Rd - one very sharp hairpin corner, be careful
    Emerald Monbulk Rd - narrow, lots of bends some sharp, light gravel on surface, restraint will be exercised.
    Rest of ride conditions are pretty good, will have to watch what the weather brings during the week.
    there could be a fair bit of traffic as well.
    More details at the rider briefing on the day.
