This year's snow season at Mount Donna Buang was a tad short (only 2 weeks or so?), so I thought that all was lost when it came to doing a snow ride up Mount Donna Buang.
This is Melbourne.
And in Melbourne, the weather is guaranteed to never (or was that always?) let you down...
So with a <A href="http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDV17102.shtml">forecast</A> for snow down to 800m this weekend, it's time to go riding...
Can be done on a road bike, but >23mm tyres would be recommended. Personally, I'm taking the MTB and fast tyres.
Sunday 27 Sept
Meet at Launching Place pub
Probably rolling out at 8am
Likely to follow <A href="http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Donna-Buang-Snow-Ride">this route</A> (thanks Pete!)
<A href="http://www.bv.com.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=10016">Last year's thread</A>.
Reserve the right to cancel this ride if the snow doesn't eventuate on the weekend. Will post on Saturday arvo and again in the evening depending on conditions...
