    We have skipped New Years Day to run this on a Monday. It will leave from Healesville and head for a shady lunch at Euroa's Seven Creeks Hotel. A magnificent 360 degree view from Mt Wombat, near Strathbogie, is a morning highlight if the access road is OK.


    The ride will finish at Yarra Glen's Grand in a day of around 320 km....there is versatility if the weather is extra hot or wet.

    Postponed from September, this is a ride to lunch at Creswick's restored American Hotel aka "The Yank". It is very much a back roads kind of day and hopefully holds an upside surprise or two (excluding 1 km of rough but level road in Gleesons Rd, Mollongghip). It is a Wednesday excursion of 280 km, plus commutes to and from Bulla. An earlier finish at Bacchus Marsh is optional.

    • Sticks & Stones Cafe, 371 Belgrave Gembrook Rd, Emerald

    This is a place holder for the Big Hot Long Ride to Licola, exact detail to follow. Usual start is from Emerald for a solid day of 450 km plus commutes. The name says it all - not a day for chit-chat, barista stops or gourmet eating. There'll be a pie at the turn and cold beverage(s) at the finish.

    Save the date for another ride tailored to new members. If you are new to the Club then this is for you! Detail to follow.

    The DOCV is very much a riding club. Our rides combine interesting and enjoyable routes, good company and support and camaraderie that will stretch your riding horizons.

    Your first ride with the club can be a bit intimidating. After all you don't know anyone and you don't know what to expect.  So this ride is designed to ease you into club rides and get you started. It's classified as an "Easy Ride". It's a bit shorter than the typical club ride, has a few corners, and includes all of the club ride essentials:

    • Some great Victorian riding roads
    • Lunch at a reasonably priced but good venue
    • The shared experience of a club group activity

    It will be a fun route with nothing too challenging at a comfortable pace. 

    Established members are encouraged to get involved in the spirit of the event.

    Important: please take the time to acquaint yourselves with the club's riding protocols and etiquette. Your booking and participation in the ride will assume you have and requires it.

    Stay cool on a summer ride to Inverloch that starts and finishes at Pakenham. The morning takes in 40 km of Grand Ridge splendour to Mirboo North, then the south fall to Dumbalk and on to Inverloch for lunch. The choice of lunch venue depends on registrations but most likely will be Inlet Hotel.


    The afternoon return is a little more direct but will have its moments. The total day is 270 km plus commutes. Byo mesh, sunscreen and hydration pack.

    The plan is to head east with a swing through Willow Grove and lunch at Neerim South on return. There are options after that but the official route is a retrace through Powelltown and to disperse from Launching Place. Expect low traffic and high twistyness.

    • Beechworth Bakery, Healesville

    Come join Flavio's ride to Jamieson. Lunch is at the former Lakeside Hotel, now Jamieson Brewery & Grill, on the foreshore of Lake Eildon. Beware his disclaimer...the whiskey is smooth, double distilled, taken neat or mixed - to be enjoyed with friends but be wary it can bite if you over indulge!

    Meet at Beechworth Bakery ahead of a 09:30 briefing. Lunch and fuel is at Jamieson and return is approximately the same route.

    Suited to most but stamina is required for the 60 km each way on Eildon-Jamieson Road.

    Mini Turismo '23 will be based at Mayday Hills, Beechworth. The middle day promises fresh territory in the Upper Murray/Lower Mitta, well clear of our lycra friends.

    It's the Labour Day weekend - March 11-13.

    Seeking a volunteer leader to organise a ride on or about this date. March is the best weather month of the year, midweek roads are quiet and you have a regular band of midweekers to draw from (apart from a few in New Zealand) - just add inspiration! PLACE
