John has the odd road up his sleeve…..
What a ripper!! Out to Wandin, then on to Cockatoo, Pakenham, and then Garfield for morning tea, where we hooked up with Alf & Pat from the South Gippy Branch.
Then out through Poowong, Loch, Moyarra and Kongwak (quite impressive roads, as it happens) before descending into Inverloch for lunch!!
But it isn’t over till it’s over!!
Home was just as good!! Dalyston, the Archie’s Creek Road and Glen Forbes, before dropping down to The Gurdies!! Simply sensational!!
However, from there, it’s a fairly boring freeway home – I didn’t grumble!! One of the best rides on our calendar!! Most pulled over there for farewells!! There were, as it transpires, the foolish amongst us who stupidly said this morning “let’s do the shopping at 3.30!! I’ll be well home by then…..” At ten past four, someone we all know was begging for forgiveness… Hmmmm… there’s a story in there somewhere. Ha ha.
Thanks to John Cook for another pearler!! Just great. Thanks to Holly, the world’s best TEC!! And you’d better thank the photographer too (Sailbad) or he’ll cull your pics!!! (Just kidding)!!! Pics here - https://ulyssesmelb.com/ride-album/john-cooks-lilydale-inverloch-21-06-20
Sailbad The Sinner has a Kalkallo to Bacchus Marsh Ride – don’t miss it!! We did a COVID19 recce ride and it was great fun!! The Glenmore Road Stepdown was ugly, especially downhill….. We may do Ingliston as an alternative….
