Sunday 16th�� Licola and Wellington River����������������������������������������������������������� ���� Peter Feistl leading

10 am Berwick

From Berwick we'll make our way to Longwarry, Jindivick, Old Sale Road, Yallourn North and Tyers for fuel. If you fuel here you will not need to get any at Licola, the round trip of 210 km just in range for most bikes. Next we will head down the 16 km of highway to Toongabbie and around through Seaton and Licola for lunch. The 23 km detour up to the Wellington River is optional but worth the trip. The return route will retrace our steps back to Tyers to break up at Longwarry North. Expect around 380 km for the day. Ride will not suit inexperienced riders; not recommended for first time Club riders.


Sunday 23rd Reefton Spur ����������� ����������� ����������������������������������������������������������� ��Ben Warden leading��� ���

10 am Yarra Glen

When I had dark brown hair, I used to lead rides which others referred to as Ben's Twisties. This ride may qualify. The route includes Myers and Chum Creek Roads to Healesville and around to Warburton for morning tea after 75 km. Then up and down Mt Donna Buang, depending on fog density, across the Reefton and down to Marysville Bakery for lunch after a further 120 km. Then up the Acheron Way till the dirt before back tracking across the Black Spur to finish at the Healesville Bakery after a further 55km. We may have to fuel up at Warburton to make it right around unless card only access fuel in Marysville is to your liking.

10 am Berwick

Route will be via Lang Lang, morning tea at Loch, lunch in Wonthaggi, finish Drouin. Estimated 320km.

Sunday 6th ���� Snake Valley������������������������� �� �������� ����������������������������������������������� ����Geoff Jones leading

10 am Whittlesea

The plan is to head out through Eden Park (eight consecutive corners) to Wallan, Romsey, Woodend and around the back way to Trentham for morning tea. Then on to Spring Hill, Glenlyon, Daylesford, Blampied, Creswick and the Ballarat servo and Subway for fuel and lunch. Expect it to be very cold. Wear your full wet weathers just to keep the wind chill at bay. Then on to Snake Valley and Linton through the gold rush diggings before turning east and heading for home picking up Mt Mercer, Meredith and the Brisbane Ranges to break up on the outskirts of Werribee. Great, hand picked roads. Expect an easy 375 km for the day. No sun glare today as we'll have the sun at our backs for most of the day.
