Course descriptionWe're heading out to the south east this time. From Officer we'll head south east across farm roads to Nar Nar Goon for the 1st stop. Then north, some forest and a few hills to the 2nd stop at Gembrook before heading south and mostly downhill back to Officer station. Less climbing than the last ride.
Route is a lot smoother than the Belgrave ride, a CX bike is ideal but if a roady with 28's is all you got bring that.
7.45am Flinders train arrives at Officer at 8.52 with no changes.
There is no 'official' shorter route but there is a Vline station at Nar Nar Goon that accepts myki if you need it.
Update 13/6 : Had to re-route course to avoid everyone getting their feet wet early on, now 88kms with ~900m of climbing.
Update 24/6: there is nothing at Officer station (no toilets, no food, not even a coke machine) so bring food for the 1st leg or else its a 1.5km ride to a servo.
