Meet: (if wanted...): Emerald Village Bakery from 8am for brecky Leave: 9.00am Distance: about 350km plus your access Type: Class 4/5 http://www.members.optusnet.com.au/glitch1/rideclass/ Bring: the usual/ drink and wets ! Return: laaaate afternoon LEAVE Gembrook IGA Supermarket (Main St.) at 9.00am. Across on the now all-sealed stretch to Launching Place, up the Old Don Rd (2km dirt at Pantons Gap) to Healesville, again cross the Hwy, up Myers Creek/ Toolangi to the top of the Slide, Melba Hwy to Glenburn, across towards Flowerdale, north to Yea, another short dogleg and up to Highland in the Switzerland Ranges, another 2km dirt (from memory) towards Seymour, another dogleg onto the Hume Fwy for about 10km towards Broadford, across via Strath Creek to Flowerdale again, then the usual way home via Kinglake and the twisties to St. Andrews/ Panton Hill....splitting somewhere along the way. The 2 short dirt bits should be ok...but one never knows. Total about 350-odd km Gembrook-Ringwood. Just to make sure: It's NOT a beginners- ride, full tanks at the start please (no servo in Gembrook). Thanks to whoever posted the Kinglake-gravel warning I saw this morning. It's a fairly long ride on mainly 2./3./4. grade sealed roads with some short dirt bits in between. Technical stuff. Gravel/ potholes fairly regularly. Could get hot up there, too. Might get a shower on the way back. This is NOT superslab-territory for sporties.
