- 140 william street, melbourne
Wednesday Road Ride approx. 110km through the Victorian country and bush.
Meet on Wednesday 1st of April 9:00am at the spot (140 William Street, Melbourne CBD)
Open for all registered riders and interested.
For many of our international guests perhaps the only chance to really get out of the city and see some of our beautiful country. We will take the train to Lilydale, a 8$ return train ride (plus 6$ for buying a myki-pass) and then set out to a loop of a bit more than 100km, passing three breweries until lunch (all flat) before facing one 21km ascent at 5% to the top of Mount Donna Buang. Another stop right after the steep descent, from there on almost perfectly flat back to Lilydale.
Make sure to be there on time, bring your bike (no shit), water, sunscreen and perhaps some food, as well as money for food, drinks and transport. Back late afternoon for dinner if everyone’s keen.
