  4. Me!

    but you would need to be VERY beginner-friendly. Like REALLY beginner friendly - As in I'll have 3-4 hours on-road experience, if I'm lucky...

    (picking it up at 9am, going riding straight away)

  10. Suggestion. (not recommended for beginners, especially the GP run. you get a lot of unpredictable behaviour in that lot)

    Get to Cranbourne by 10 (check, I'm guessing) and join the GP run.

    About five K past Grantville, you'll see a crossroad with a rign pointing right to Corinella. Go left. Follow the road up the valley and into the hills. (Caution. some tight bits with so-so sight lines. Take it easy) Follow your nose until the road ends at a T junction. Go left, through Archies Creek, and once again follow your nose. Over the ridges and through the valleys of the Sth Gippsland hills, the road is a bit tight in parts, caution is advised. The road ends at a T junction in Loch on the Sth Gippsland Hwy. Good coffee opposite. Left takes you back to Melb. If you go right, cross the bypass road and head up the hill, (keeping to the right at the first junction) a nice little road will take you to the fragrant sounding town of Poowong. Turn left, and negotiate a series of 40 k/h bends, followed by a straight bit and about 10 k of sweepers that bring you back to Lang Lang. Turn left at the roundabout to get back to the Highway.

    (Alternative: turn right at Poowong. The road ends at a T junction with the Korumburra-Warragul road. Go left through some 'interesting' roads up to the Princes Hwy. Left back to the city, or pass through Warragul, and head through all the Neerims up toward Noojee. Close to Noojee is a left turn that takes you back through Powelltown to Yarra Junction. )

    Enjoy.

  13. If you cant make motoGP (like me) then forget the crowds, traffic, & cops, ride north - up to Mt Macedon across to Daylesford via Trentham, some nice riding on any sunny afternoon out that way.

    Don’t forget the scum of the roads (cyclists) will be doing their big ride thingy around the bay this weekend, avoid these lycra clad road scum at all costs.
