[VIC] Thompson Dam Ride - Sat Oct 7th

Discussion in 'VIC' started by [FLUX], Oct 6, 2006.

  1. Sorry for the late-notice. CamKawa and I were chatting tonight at coffee. Cam's got a new bike and wants to finish running it in. The weather looks great tomorrow, and since the last Thompson Dam ride didn't go ahead, we thought we'd try for second time to make it.

    Here's the ride plan. This ride would suit more experienced riders due to the total distance covered. The Thompson Dam road is fantastic, wide, smooth, and we'll be covering a whole swathe of good roads on the day.

    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.


    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.


    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.
