Greg is taking us to a new destination for this ride. Starting at the western departure point and heading out through Meredith for morning tea then via Cressy and Colac to the volcanic area of Red Rock. Should be an interesting venue and a great ride.

Roger is heading out west to take us on another great ride through the hills. Starting at Kalkallo we will wend our way around some lovely districts to either Ballan or Bacchus Marsh so a  bit of a mystery ride this time.  Roger tried this one on 11 Aug and due to antarctic weather only two riders turned up for a truncated version, so it is on again.
