[VIC] Ride to Yea, Sat May 13th

  1. [VIC] Ride to Yea Sat 13 May

    This is a version my semi-regular Saturday morning ride and very similar to one posted by Seany a couple of weeks ago.

    Route: Warrandyte, Kangaroo Ground, Paton Hill, St Andrews, Kinglake, Kinglake West, Flowerdale, Yea (lunch and refuel here) then Break O'Day, Glenburn, Yarra Glen (via Melba Hwy), Kangaroo Ground and back to Warrandyte


    Meet at Warrandyte in the carpark directly opposite the Grand Hotel approx. 500m towards the city from Kangaroo Ground Rd round about. Melways ref 23, E11. There are some photos in this link https://netrider.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=19068

    Meet: 10:00am
    Depart: 10:30am
    Distance: approx 200km



    This will not be a fast ride and the emphasis will be on riding at your own pace. Learners are welcome but should be aware that the section from St Andrews to Kinglake is very narrow and twisty and there is big drop off along most of it. This section is probably not suitable for real beginners. I love this bit of road but always treat it with a great deal of respect - no being a hero here.

    This ride will have a Ride Leader, Tail End Charlie and there will be corner marking. Experienced riders please let me know if you would like any of these roles.

    The ride will go ahead unless it is really, really wet but depending on who turns out and state of the roads the St Andrews King lake section can be avoided.

    Dear Mods: Due to being a bit of a technological nuff nuff, I think I’ve stuffed up the whole calendar thingy. I started out this morning with a calendar entry and a post but when I tried to edit the calendar entry I ended up with a post and no calendar entry and then there was a calendar entry and no post, so I started over. You should have essentialy the same calendar entry that you originally approved waiting to be approved again. Feel free to delete or merge this thread with forumbots if that thread is generated. If you haven’t received a new calendar entry from me please let me know and I’ll re-submit it. I’ve put this post up now anyway because I’m not going to have internet access tonight and I’d like to give people decent notice of the ride.

  9. Cool... just found this thread... I'll probably come along tomorrow and bring a couple of mates that are yet to do any group rides :)

    I went to Seany's ride to Yea the other week and had a great time and some amazing views when looking in the mirrors and seeing 30 odd bikes behind me winding around the twisties :grin:

    Would be great to get another big turnout... I can also help out with Corner marking if needed??

  18. Thanks to the hardy few who turned out for on Saturday. By the time we left the group consisted of Roughcactus, Cadbury, Cejay, Spasmo and myself.

    The ride was a little on the chilly side but heaps of fun, particularly the ever so sensible final leg into Yea :p Lunch was great as was the conversation. Can't wait until the next one :grin:


    jdm, sorry we missed you. Hope to see you on a ride soon.
