Because there are some people in this world who have no interest in overpaid meatheads chasing a pig's guts around, here's an alternative. Myself and a mate are heading over to the You Yangs for a bit of MTB fun. The plan is to start at the Kurrajong picnic area, so we have a reasonably flat warm-up, then head up to the Stockyards section & have some fun in the lumpies, before returning to Kurrajong. The ride will be longish (40-ish km), at a not insane pace.
Meet at Kurrajong Picnic area, 9:30am Saturday 29th. For anyone unfamiliar, enter via the main park entrance on Branch Rd, then simply follow the signs to MTB areas. Take Great Circle Road; turn off to the left immediately before it becomes a one-way road. There is no water on site, so come prepared.
*Weather Note* The forecast is looking a bit rugged, but the Youies tends to be a fair bit drier than Melbourne & the eastern side of the bay. That said, it is pretty exposed to the wind, so dress accordingly.
The Obligatory List
Just ride the bloody thing and enjoy yourself!
