[VIC] Thompson Dam Mega Twisty Ride - Sun 27th August

Discussion in 'VIC' at netrider.net.au started by [FLUX], Aug 26, 2006.

  1. A rather late-notice ride. I was waiting to see what the weather was going to be like on Sunday, and it looks good. 8:30am ride-starts are also a bit of a killer, so here's an alternative ride for Sunday if anyone wants to come along. Will post to calendar is there's enough interest, but it may be too late by then anyway.

    Meet Time: 9:45am
    Meet Location: Berwick Safeway Fuel+, (next to McDonalds) Clyde Road Berwick, Melways Ref: 111 C10
    Depart Time: 10am
    Ride Class: 4 (Experienced)

    LOTS of twisties. No unsealed roads. Very minimal highways.

    Route:

    1st Leg: Meet Point to Moe for Lunch and Refuel (144kms)
    Beaconsfield Upper, Pakenham, Nar Nar Goon, Longwarry, Jindivick, Noojee, Willow Grove, Moe

    2nd Leg: Moe to Yarra Junction (Fuel and Drinks), via Thompsons Dam (179kms)
    Yallourn North, Tyers, Rawson, Thompson Dam (stop for a squizz), Erica, Willow Grove, Noojee, Powelltown, Yarra Junction

    (Then as time permits, and depending on group's enthusiasm)

    3rd Leg: Spur Loop, ending at Healvesille (98kms)
    Warburton, Reefton, Marysville, Healesville and ride-end.

    OR

    3rd Leg: Yarra Junction to Rowville (79kms)
    Yarra Junction, Gembrook, Pakenham Upper, C0ckatoo, Emerald, Wellington Rd to Rowville BP and ride-end.

    Ride should be finished by around 4:30-5:00pm.

    Sound good? See you there.

  2. Any one? No one?

    C'mon. What's better? Soul-searching for the meaning of relationships in an on-line forum, or just getting out and sharing some good roads together?

  5. :grin:

    Looking forwards to seeing both of you there, and perhaps a few more. It'll be a good day, covering some excellent roads not often covered by the usual spur day-trips.

    Hoping to see some more people at the meet point.

  7. Hi Cathar. Did the ride go ahead? If so how was it? Would have loved to attend this one. Don't know how far behind the 2 fiddy would have been. :)
