Sunday 19th �� Meredith via Brisbane Ranges ������������������������������������������������������� ����Geoff Jones leading

10 am West Gate Shell Servo

Geoff will lead us over the West Gate Bridge taking the third Werribee exit to avoid as much of suburbia as possible before heading off towards the You Yangs and Anakie. The roads are pretty straight up until this point but from now on become more exciting with uphill sweepers as we traverse the Brisbane Ranges on the west side. On to Maude and Meredith for morning tea at the BP servo.

After the break we'll pick up the twisty and steep Durdidwarrah road across to the east side of the Ranges and back to Anakie. Now we'll start riding along the old Club Hill Climb route up Mt Wallace. You'll marvel at the poor state of the road - gravel and potholes on every corner - and wonder how we ever held time trials up here. On to Ballan, Greendale, Trentham and Lancefield for late lunch.

The final leg will pick up Pyalong, Broadford, Strath Creek and Kinglake West. Expect around 380 km of varied roads.
