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 The Butlers Panty at 9.30 am and takes us through to Noojee for lunch via Drouin and Willow Grove. The ride finishes at Woori Yallock. Total distance of 205km (~3 hours of riding) plus your commutes.
Plan your commute to the Butlers Pantry to arrive no later than 9 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 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.
Please Note: If you join the ride without booking by the booking deadline, you may not get a seat at the lunch venue, which is usually very busy.
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.
