After some consultation with several learners from the saturday group, it has been bought up that maybe a weekend away(one night) might be a great idea? Obviously open to all newbies, Ls, well any riders. But the main objective is to allow everyone to achieve a longer ride away from the city, which many dont seem to get a chance to do, from either time, confidence, or knowledge factor. With the social factor The main questions will be 1) Time - Oct, Nov etc to allow for planning of kids, pets, parents etc 2) Estimated group numbers 3) Volunteers - more experianced riders for lead and TEC 4) Location - I have some ideas which are not too far from melbourne, to counteract rider ability, fatigue(plenty of stops) etc and possible routes. Can we have a show of "hands" who may be keen? And if you have suggestions, ideas, post them up..
