Another good ride from Greg whose rides are never a straight line so come prepared to do a lot of miles as we traverse Gippsland as we go the long way.


At this stage (6.30pm Saturday) the Bureau is still saying "showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening".  Jane Bunn is saying "no rain in the city till 3pm".
I have 2 alternate endings - from Korumburra's morning tea stop, we can go past Koonwarra and down through Tarwin Lower to Venus Bay, or to Fish Creek and across through Waratah Beach, Walkerville South and Walkerville, the latter being a terrific ride.  There's a bit over 35 minutes difference between the two, and in rain, 40 minutes is a long time.  My hope is that it'll be obvious by Korumburra when the rain will hit, and we'll choose the appropriate option!!  Rest assured Jane Bunn has your (and my) best interests at heart.......

Almost made it surprise  My riding jeans got a bit damp between Cockatoo and home.crying
Hopefully we have recruited a new roving reporter so stay tuned wink

Hey - me too!!

Light rain from Tooradin - heavy rain after I got home to Highett!!  There's a pattern developing here  tee hee!!

Thanks Roger Foot Tail End Charlie Extraordinaire....

Thanks John Cook photos on demand as always...

Thanks all of you who came along! 

Rumour has it that a few of these roads might be featured in another ride being planned by a Collingwood roughie (Greg G) and a sauve British chap (John F) - watch this space - no names, no pack drill!!!
