    Learner 3 day Trip into the HighCountry (y) :D :)

    OK guys, for those of you who asked about a Learner HighCountry Trip....

    RIDE LEVEL: Touring 1 intermediate. Please see: https://netrider.net.au/threads/ride-level-ratings.159944/
    WHEN: Sat 17, Sun 18 and Mon 19 November.
    MEET: MacDonald's 398 Plenty Rd Mill Park, cnr University Dve. (Shell Servo next door)
    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: 8-30am for 9am SHARP leave.
    WHERE: Into the HighCountry!! ;)
    ACCOMM: 2 nights at Bright in 3 bedroom cabins (all linen and towels are supplied).
    COST: $80 per person (covers both nights).

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

    Places visited will be 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 at Healesville where we say our good-byes before going our own way. See route: http://goo.gl/maps/eBTfc

    The TEC, who will know the exact route, 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.

    4 riders have already put up their hands to share TEC duties, thankyou. (y)

    CONFIRMED (Paid):
    Kat Rider

    RIDE FULL, NO MORE NAMES BEING TAKEN, those on waiting list will be PM'd if someone pulls out. :unsure:

    Feel free to post here or PM me with any questions. Amendments will be made to this thread from time to time, so please refer back here for updates.

    IMPORTANT: Attendees to please read and understand this link https://netrider.net.au/pages/group_rides/
