As we were in town during our trip, I made contact and we called in and met with a group of Fremantle Branch members during their Saturday morning get together by the port. We were made very welcome and enjoyed a chat in sunny conditions overlooking the busy port.

Good news, members!!
In order to give you a better option for booking your place at the 2019 Mansfield Oddyssey, we will try to bring registration forms and information handouts to upcoming rides! Anyone attending this Sunday's Lilydale to Mansfield Ride can collect forms and info handouts before the ride. See Greg G for the handouts!!
A select group of 7 rusted on regulars was joined by new member Claude Olave on his first outing with the group for an autumn ride which proved surprisingly chilly. Steve Bailes offered to take the rear and other riders included Andrew Kennedy (still awaiting the final component to mount his heated grips), Colin Voss, Geoff, Carlo and Vince Green. We headed out the Western Highway then turned at Leakes Rd to take the back way to Bacchus Marsh through Exford and Parwan.
Sadly Greg was indisposed for his scheduled Kalkallo -Bacchus Marsh ride on April 21st, something about a pulled hammy while attempting to catch a falling Hayabusa. However there was a good turn out, the weather was fine and a good time was had by all. We followed Greg's route (see his earlier post) at an especially gentle pace as it was Easter Sunday, but I elected to not take the Glenmore Road from Ballan to Bacchus Marsh as I hadn't ridden that way for a couple of years and didn't know the road condition.
