Colin's Version First
With the prospect of a warm and sunny day, some 20 odd riders gathered at the Lilydale start location.
It seemed as though all bike types were represented; notably the BMW GSA contingent, with Sam arriving on his 2 day old bike, as the tail rider.
The forecast of a 30% chance of rain looked more than accurate as I left Montrose in cold and drizzling conditions dressed in full wet weather gear. It was good to see an enthusiastic group of starters when I arrived in Lilydale, which was much busier than normal due to the annual Lilydale Show.
