Kalkallo to Bacchus Marsh

Submitted by rogerfoot1 on Sun, 11/08/2019 - 3:51pm

With a week of true winter weather and near-record snowfalls this ride was always going to separate the men from the boys, or should that read the sheep from the goats?  The day dawned with photos sent from friends in the Woodend and Kyneton districts, the planned route for the ride, showing snow on their paddocks. So it was on with the thermals and suit liners and off to see if anyone was silly enough to come along!

Ardeer to Gisborne

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.

"Greg's Ride"

Submitted by rogerfoot1 on Thu, 02/05/2019 - 3:19pm

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.
