The DOCV is very much a riding club, so if you're a new member or a member that has not yet been on a club ride, this ride is for you.
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 camaraderie and shared experience of a group activity
The ride departs from Platters Cafe at 10.30 am and takes us via Kinglake West, through to Marmalades Cafe in Yea for lunch. The ride finishes at Healesville. Total distance of 199 km (~3 hours of riding) plus your commutes.
Plan your commute to the Platters Cafe to arrive no later than 10 am, as we have various formalities to cover-off before we depart. Usually before a ride, we like to have a coffee, introduce ourselves to one another and have a bit of a chat. So most will tend to come at least 45 minutes before departure time.
There will be a fuel stop in Yea, but as with all rides, you need to have a full tank at the start.
A fun route with nothing too challenging at a comfortable pace.
Note: As of the time of posting of this event, we are still under lockdown. Nevertheless, we are still planning to hold this event in the hope that the lockdown will be lifted. Just before lockdown, we were subject to a limit of 10 ride participants plus a leader plus a tail-end-charlie. So we are setting the number of registrations for this ride with that in mind.
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.
