The day is by no means a prerequisite to join regular Club rides but it is designed to be welcoming and to ease new members into the culture at DOCV. There will be an extended briefing to explain corner marking, etiquette and expectations. Please arrive comfortably before 9 AM to allow time, as well as for coffee and to meet everyone.
It is an all-bitumen route and kept to 220 km to suit the winter season. There is a short freeway section between Kalkallo and Wallan, otherwise it holds a good mix of roads and hopefully a few new ones for many.
The route heads north to Lancefield for morning smoko, onto Kyneton in a roundabout way where we will stop for fuel (140 km) then over Mt Macedon for lunch at The Macedon Lounge. The ride will finish at BP Calder inbound by 3 PM.
There is nothing too challenging and it will be kept at a comfortable pace. You are, however, expected to maintain the speed limit in the open sections. Please arrive with appropriate gear and a fullish tank.
Experienced members are encouraged to attend in the spirit of the event. It is a good winter route, your participation helps set the vibe and you never know who you might meet!
New Members can acquaint themself with the club's riding protocols and etiquette here.
