Wish I could join in but I can't this weekend.

You mentioned the traffic between Ringwood and Lilydale ... I avoid that route when I can.

Have you considered Eltham - Kangaroo Ground - Yarra Glen - Healsville as an alternate route?

I ride around this area and up to Eildon, Yea, Marysville etc quite frequently and look forward to perhaps joinjng in on a future ride.

Have to agree with Saturn 5 .... starting around 7 or earlier is worth considering ... in my opinion less traffic then makes for a more enjoyable ride?

Found Some

Found three Wee Stroms at the Plaza - two in the car park and one near an entrance.

One was mine, but Ahmett, Perseverance and I had a coffee before the other two headed off for a ride and I went back home to finish the washing.

The Racecourse Foyer (near the SuperCheap store, opposite the first pedestrian crossing) is a good rendezvous point and there's plenty of room for bikes.

Ahmett's Wee Strom got some admiring glances and good comments (his had been washed!).


There's nothing I can't do, but there's a lot I won't do.
SUZI - I'm in love with her, but I'm afraid she's taking me for a ride.
SUZI - she dumped me, I was hurt, but we're both recovering now. We'll be going out together again once we're both feeling better.
We're both better now, but with heated grips, SUZI's now hot stuff!
Alas, poor SUZI [DL650 L2A 2012 - 2015 R.I.P.], I knew her well. After being dumped a second time, I must farewell her.

I'm not flighty, but SUZI II [DL650 L5A] has now stolen my heart.

It was a little late to be heading off, but it was still a great day, more of a meet and greet.

After leaving Douggie, Ahmett and I took a short ride. Bacchus Marsh, Blackwood, Trentham, Woodend, Macedon and up to the cross, then back through Gisborne to home. Should have taken an extra layer as its always a few degrees cooler out that way.Lots of gentle winding corners threw the forests and a few tighter ones up the mountain. Only stopped a couple of times, once to snap this shot.

You can guess which one is mine.
