I agree that it is looking like finding accomodation in Yea would be difficult, so maybe we should consider the two different suggestions below ...

I think that's what Steve (hubby of Karen3.1) is planning to do - Steve, feel free to correct me. Then you have the advantages of not needing to find accomodation, too...I'm sure we could find enough cars between us to get to Whittlesea & make this happen.
I don't care which one of the above suggestions we do - Whittlesea to Flowerdale return, or just to Whittlesea.
I have never done the Kinglake ride before, and my work friend says Kinglake is really nice ... so given Whittlesea -> Flowerdale goes past Kinglake West - I think it is a good opportunity for me to have a go at the Kinglake climb!
Anyone else interested in doing the side trip from Kinglake West to Kinglake return (or some other Kinglake ride?)
I'm probably the only one with a hybrid now !!!
As for transport ...

(starting location ~ Broadmeadows, I think)
Dave was also suspecting he might be able to get a car of some description (starting location = Glen Iris)
What does everyone else think ???
