Tuesday 23 July Pt.Nepean

Nothing blogged so I'm riding to Point Nepean or thereabouts if anyone wants to come. Pt. Nepean is one of the better rides that we do: easy, flat and sealed all the way. Turn around points at Sorrento or Portsea if you don't want to ride all the way.

9.30 Start at Safety Beach - usual spot at the toilet block. Marine Parade about #75

Distance 66km but can be considerably shortened. Decide at the time. Elevation about 1000m but that too can be changed depending how we feel on  the day. About 70% asphalt, 30% smooth gravel but that too can change if it has been affected by rain.

Tuesday 14. Short one - Toolangi

Start:  9.30 Green St car park , Healesville.(market site)

Route clockwise, Healesville King Lake rd - Myers Creek rd. Don't know the exact stats cos didn't have Strava switched on last time I did it. My guess less than 40km and about 600 m climbing. Not steep. Nothing more than 4 or 5%. if its steeper I'll shout coffee. 
Coffee at the much over rated Beechworth Bakery - if we have to !

Tuesday, May 7, 2024


Rendezvous:  9.00 am Hermons Corner or 9.30 Kallista fire station.

Route:  Upper Coonara rd, then the easier part of The Wall to Olinda, Silvan rd, Olinda Creek rd to Kalorama, then the tourist rd back to Olinda & Ferny Creek followed by Sherbrooke rd  back to the fire station. Coffee ? who knows - perhaps Mt.Dandenong.  Distance about 40 km ? unless you want to go down to Montrose and up. Perhaps not.  Altitude probably nudging 1000m.

Monday, May 6, 2024

The Alexandra ride. Participants: Kerri, Kirsten, Jon, Jurgen. Brass monkey temperature & fog to start off but turned into a beautiful day. Great ride. One of the best gravel rides that we do. Wheregarwen rd in particular was delightful to ride along. We chewed up the hills like pros
