Winters here so whats better than a nice hot chocolate, and I'm told that the Chocolate mill is really good. Sounds like the Zen Ride you say. well it is. Nice quiet learner friendly ride with lunch at The Chocolate Mill Copied route from Rob, due to time constraints (thanks could get in touch with you) STARTING TIME: Leaving at 10:30am from the outbound https://netrider.net.au/pics/maps/vic-portmelbourne.gif Shell servo on the Westgate freeway. Meet at 10am for fuel, coffee and rider briefing just before take off. We'll take the freeway and http://tinyurl.com/2swe6q back way to Bacchus Marsh (some 62km) and regroup at the Maccas. This leg is quite straight and dull, but BUMPY!! We'll leaving again at 11:30am. From there we'll take the http://tinyurl.com/358qek back roads to Daylesford (some 72km) which will see us take in the pentland hills road, wombat state forest and Trentham. Mostly sweepers, but a couple of 40km/h bumpy corners. Destination is currently the Farmers Arms Hotel - www.farmersarms.com.au in Daylesford, but that might change as the day draws near. The ride will be at legal speeds and below - this is about Zen, not twisty bashing - and will probably end up with a major gas bag over lunch! Peeps are free to make their own way back at any time, or we'll just reverse the route after 3ish. Who's in?
