  2. [VIC] Mountain to Molehill Ride, 24th Feb

    Ride Class: 3


    Inspired by the PRMR post ride fiasco, this is a ride kicking off from the Bayswater Safeway servo on MOUNTAIN Highway, heading up the fun part of MOUNTAIN highway, over MOUNT Dandenong, over to Healesville, up Chum Creek road and up to Yea with a stop for lunch. Then continuing Eastward through MOLESworth and onto Marysville for an afternoon stop at Fraga's. What happens from there is open: Black spur laps/Reefton spur, etc etc.

    This is an Intermediate to Experienced ride: Moderately long distances (244kms mapped on google) with two stops. There are sections of advanced and moderate cornering, highways and country roads and scope for spirited riding. !This is NOT a learner friendly ride! There are also several highway crossing points which require confident riding skills to traverse in a group environment.

    Date and Time:
    Sunday 24th February, 10am for a 10.30am ride off. Expected finish 3pmish in Marysville - or 3:30ish in Healesville.

    Start point:
    Safeway Caltex Servo, 659 Mountain Highway, Bayswater.

    Other details:
    * TANKS FULL at ride off!!
    * Experienced riders definitely welcomed. (Enough experienced riders may result in a "fast" group.)
    * Since some of the planned roads become greasy in wet conditions, the ride may not proceed if the weather isn't dry and sunny.

    !Please RSVP in the thread listing bike type!
