i am 100% open to any suggestion for any trip details.
nothing on my mind at the moment.
but i normally ride strait to the Diamond Creek up towards Kingslake and then Sunbury and then i dont know how but i end up in wallan and craigeburn.
last weekend i rode to healsville thorough lilydale,black spur road,mansfield,then alexandra,yea then again somehow i ended up in seymour this time.
route was amazing.only put off was the traffic from ringwood to Lilydale.
We could make a time on saturday to meet somewhere,by the time we finish our coffee i am sure we can find somewhere to ride.after all we living on a continent,it not like we'll be running out of space

Sounds good.

There is a few newer members in the western suburbs now and it would be great to meet up and have a ride.There are a lot off things that can intimidate new members though, "what if's" are the most commen.

what if.....

I can't keep up,
it is to far for me to ride,
they go on a dirt road.

You don't need to plan an entire ride, just a couple of details of your intentions can make a big difference to the turn out.

I'll PM my mobile number later

meeting at plaza is ok with me.if we could set a exact time and spot i'll be there with my gears thats of-course you guys wanna go for riding after coffee.
we can exchange ideas and discus about things,that way i thing it would clear and ease the nerve's of any new riders as Perseverance mentioned.
