Members may recall that in the past we've done a couple of visits to an aged care facility in Malvern - basically to entertain the residents by showing off our bikes and talking all things motorcycling with them.
The second visit in particular was very successful, with a volunteer carer acting as MC and keeping the discussion rolling.
Now our contact at that home has moved jobs and is asking if we would repeat the visit at her new place of work in South Oakleigh.
With the weather forecast for tomorrow just what the little bear wants (not too wet, and not too hot!), I think I'll take a ride and recce a route for the "TBA" ride I've got in the calendar for 6th Jan.
If you're up for a ride tomorrow, give me a shout.
The plan (still developing...) is to start at the Ardeer start point at the standard 10am and head out to Lancefield by a wriggly route and then back down towards or over the Calder towards the Western Freeway (still planning that bit of the ride!).
