NB Daylight Savings Starts - Don't be late!

Dennis is to lead us on a ride for the first time so come along and show him some support. He will take us on a route he knows well from Officer through Pearcedale and Warragul on some great roads.

This ride was originally scheduled for 19 Aug but due to horrible weather, only Dennis, Greg G and Pat turned up and decided jointly that it was too dangerous to continue up into the hills so we cancelled and went home.

It has been quite a while since we've done this one. 

For those not going to the Moto GP, I plan to have morning tea at Meredith and then go down past the bollards etc at Geelong and via Eastern Beach Reserve (see the old baths etc) before it gets too busy over summer and then pop down to Portarlington for a relaxed picnic (BYO or buy there) lunch by the water. 

For those who live on the Mornington Peninsula or the south east in general there is the option of riding to Queenscliff via Indented Head and returning on the ferry to Sorrento enlightened
