If you've not been on a member ride or are a new member, then this is for you!
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
This 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 ~200km (~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.
Established members are encouraged to get involved in the spirit of the event.
Please note: registration cut-off is 3 days before 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.
