    Learner Friendly Bright Trip (y) :D:riding:



    By October the beautiful weather will be upon us once again, so I've booked a few cabins at Bright for another fun trip into the HighCountry.



    RIDE LEVEL: Touring 1 intermediate. Please see: https://netrider.net.au/threads/ride-level-ratings.159944/
    WHEN: Sat 26, Sun 27 and Mon 28 October 2013

    MEET: MacDonald's 398 Plenty Rd Mill Park, cnr University Dve. (Shell Servo next door, Caltex at 377 Plenty Rd)
    You don't need to fill up here, but must fill up at Yea (80km further) before the next fuel stop (160km) if you can't make 240km.

    TIME: 8-15am for 8-30am SHARP leave, please don't be late:)

    WHERE: Into the HighCountry!!
    ACCOMM: 2 nights at Bright in 2/3 bedroom cabins (linen and towels supplied).
    COST: $82 per person (covers both nights). Free Wi-Fi too(y)

    This 3 day trip is aimed at the newer riders amongst us who are confident they have the skills to safely ride in a group for 300-400km per day, on some of Victoria's greatest bike roads. Riding in the company of some of the more experienced riders, the itinerary allows for plenty of rest/re-group/photo opp's along the way:playful:

    This is a no-pressure type of ride where each rider maintains a pace that suits them, one at which they feel comfortable. We all want to get where we are going safely:D

    Places visited will be Mansfield, Falls Creek, Omeo, Dinner Plain, just to name a few and even a run up the winding road to Mt Buffalo Chalet if time permits. Ride will end with a coffee break/refuel at Healesville where we say our good-byes before going our own way.

    Corner marking and TEC (Tail-End Charlie) will be operating on this ride and TEC will be an experienced rider who is patient enough to allow the slowest rider all the time they need to get to where they're going. TEC should be carrying a puncture repair kit, basic tools and a 1st Aid kit, none of which we hope to need.

    All welcome.

    Offers for TEC much appreciated(y)
