Date: Sunday 25 September 2016
'Rego' (i.e. get a cue sheet) from: 9.30am
Start Location: The Basin Reserve (see map below)
Finish: Same as Above
We'll start and finish at the Basin, its a short 3km ride from Boronia Station. Otherwise there is typically plenty of parking at the Basin or the ride out from the city is very relaxed along the Eastlink trail and Dandenong creek trail.
Exact route to be confirmed, but we'll check out all the old favourites from past rides, Basin Olinda Road, Ridge Rd, Silvan Rd and much more.
There'll be a little bit of single track but a CX bike will be fine with maybe a bit of walking.
So, like most MGG rides, road bikes and especially road cleats are not advised.
There will be two stops on the ride and the Basin has a bakery, cafe, shop and bottle store for before and after ride snacks.
Update 5/9/16: Course Recce done, 65kms with 1800m of climbing, some of it quite pinchy but some fun (easy) single track to enjoy, two stops for food and drink, it all finishes with a great downhill roll.
