NOVICE, LEARNER, NEW MEMBER AND ANY ELSE WHO WANTED TO COME RIDE 23 APRIL 2016

Post by K2 on Sat Apr 23 2016, 17:59

After a ride briefing for many new riders that joined us (including Greg Morrison, and Heather from Warburton), some 20+ bikes headed out from Brunch on an overcast Saturday morning. The roads were damp for a while, but dried up nicely as we headed up Maroondah Highway through Lilydale and on to Healesville where we had a quick regroup and picked up another new rider, Chris. Without any cars in our midst, we got a fair run at the the early part of the Black Spur before encountering some slower tin tops - oh well! At the Marysville turn off we all got snapped by a furtive figure at the side of the road - no, not Senior Sergeant Ritchie, but our own Chris Collins who had snuck ahead. We pulled up at the Marysville Country Bakery to meet the other group who had ridden up the Reefton Spur (Ecka, Placid, Bryn and others) and Cutto who had been working up that way. The hungry bunch had a fair crack at eating the Bakery out of food and the staff responded to the challenge - good tucker, coffee and a bit of banter as we got to know the newer riders. Some of the group peeled off after lunch and went home via the Reefton spur, and the rest headed back to Healesville in bright sunshine where a few more peeled off to go home via "Woori". We waved goodbye to the Dempsters in Croydon and then it was just Bob & Kathy McArthur as TEC and Pam & I left in the group - I guess that meant the ride was officially finished!!

Thanks to Bob and apologies to Ron for double booking TECs - mea culpa!!

PS If I ask nicely, CC, can we please see some photos???????
