https://netrider.net.au/calendar/?action=details&id=769 Beginning at Warrandyte, through Kangaroo Ground and Yarra Glen then to Kinglake for a quick break and re-group. From Kinglake to Yea via Flowerdale for lunch (and fuel). After lunch we will head back to Yarra Glen on the Melba Hwy before heading to back to Melbourne. Once we get back to Yarra Glen we can decide if we want to take a) Straight home. b) Back for another run through Christmas Hills. c) Head to Healsville, Woori Yallock and back through Lilydale. This is intended as a sedate ride appropriate for learners. As always of course, all abilities are welcome and experienced riders encouraged to come along and help guide the heard. :grin: [-o< Ride Level: 1 Meet in Warrandyte in the carpark directly opposite the pub, ~500m towards the city from the roundabout.

To melbourne from there will depend on whether you want to go direct to Melb, or via Healsville & Woori Yallock. Fuel: There will be time to get fuel in Kinglake, Yea and Yarra Glen (on return) if needed. Please make sure you turn up with a full tank. This ride will have a Ride Leader, Tail End Charlie and there will be Corner Marking. Any volunteers for TEC and corner marking would be greatly appriciated. Note: If it is a particularly wet day, the ride will be postponed until the Sunday or cancelled if that day is also wet. Ride Leader: Seany (a role I'm willing to share) TEC: glipschitz Corner markers: With current numbers, the safest option will be to make it a group effort. The rider directly behind the ride leader at each turnoff will mark the corner for the rest of the group. Thankyou in advance to the volunteers. You're all wonderful.

I will explain all rules and best practice in the pre-ride briefing.
