All rides using the southern Ride Start point will now leave from a new location at Officer.
The Committee investigated suggestions that the old Dandenong start point had become less than ideal due to the urban growth and the longer distances needing to be traveled to get to the real riding roads, and has decided upon a new location at Officer.
We think that the new Officer location strikes a balance between riding further to get to the start and then starting from a point closer to the good roads. The new location allows easy access to all places south and east, and also very easy access to the north for rides going up into the Dandenong Ranges. The location is off the freeway (which allows departure in any direction) but close to it to allow easy access.
The new Officer Ride Start location is:
Coles Express servicestation
439 Princes Highway
To get there via the Monash / Princes Freeway, go past two "Berwick" exits and take the next exit which is signposted "Officer C101". The freeway exit sweeps right onto the old Princes Highway, then the Coles Express is a couple of km along on your left. Ya can't miss it.....

See you there!
Oh, it might take a little while to get this info onto the Ride Start Locations - that takes more computy skills than I have!
