Departs Lilydale.  Ride Leader John Cook 0419 599 530.  NB slightly early start time

Heading the "shorter" way (not via Gippsland) across the North East with a latish lunch stop somewhere like Yackandandah.

I'll be staying at the Victoria Hotel both nights (02) 6071 2672 - Make your own accommodation arrangements direct. 

Planned Saturday ride medium distance - Murray River Road, Granya Gap - Jingellic and Corryong before return to Tallangatta.      

On the return ride on Sunday I may well be returning to family duties in Sale on the Monday.   So that will be a ride via Mitta Mitta, Anglers Rest - Omeo etc.  

Please let me know if you're coming enlightened


It is with great sadness that I announce that Sally can't make it!!  Bummer - I'll have to go on my own!!!!!  YIPPEEEEEE!!!!  (Oops, sorry Sal....)

I have booked my accommodation at the "Vic" for the Tallangatta weekend.  Sadly, (be still my beating heart) it coincides with a bridal shower for Sal's daughter Gemma, who is marrying in early Feb. It breaks my heart to be away when this is happening, but I owe it to Sal to give her an "open paddock" with her girls.......  I am, as always, selfless to the hilt.........

I'm just hoping for a big turnup of my Ulysses mates - it'll dull the pain of not being there for Sal and Gemma.....

I think hydration will be the key this coming weekend.  wink  

That is one hot forecast surprise  Actually Melbourne's forecast is slightly hotter than Corryong.   We can assess when up there  indecision

Starting to envisage shade, river water at Jingellic and takign it easy on Saturday    

Hi John

I have already packed my bathers & towel!!  Leather pants have been replaced with Kevlars, leather jacket with flow cell textile, and I will freeze my water drink bottle Thursday night!!  Whilst the forecast is bad, in reality, the traffic light derbies in and out of suburban Melbourne might be the worst bits.  Once on the move, it's not too bad if you have adequate hydration!!

Never underestimate the value of a neck warmer soaked in cold water.....
