UPCOMING CLUB RIDES
WE ARE BACK. THIS SITE HAS BEEN INACTIVE FOR A WHILE. NEW POSTS COMING SOON!
Details for the November S3 ride (Sun 17 Nov) have now been posted.
SEE HERE for further info...
Due to the Djerriwarrh Festival that is being held in Melton this weekend there will likely be road closures on High Street affecting access to Jolly Miller etc.
As a result the ride details for this Saturday 9 Nov will be as follows:
Eyensbury Golf Club car park
Leaving Eyensbury, riders will follow Exford Rd through Rockbank and make their way up to Toolern Vale, then onto Bacchus Marsh before returning to Eyensbury to complete the course.
As usual the ride will be weather permitting, so if it is raining in the morning assume the ride is cancelled.
Otherwise, please consider the forecast and dress accordingly.
Please note that the Wednesday evening club rides are back on again (as of Wed 6 November 2013).
As usual, the meeting point is Waves car park on Coburns Rd and the departure time will be 6pm.
Also, the next organised club ride will be held on Sunday 17 November 2013.
We will be re-visiting last month's Sunbury ride and details will be posted shortly.
A number of MCC members achieved their 2013 Around the Bay goals yesterday but one in particular stands out.
Mark Mangion achieved an amazing ride distance yesterday of 328 km’s (yes, three hundred and twenty-eight kilometres).
Mark posted his thoughts about the ride on Facebook and with his permission I have included it below.
To everyone who rode in the trying conditions yesterday,
well done in achieving your goals and I hope you are recovering well today.
For those participating in the Around The Bay ride (or any other large rides over the coming months), Michael Wright (MCC member) has kindly offered his services to give your much-loved bike a tune up in preparation for such rides.
For any MCC members that are interested, Michael will be available this coming Saturday (9am to 3pm) to conduct this service.
Michael will be conducting these services from his home in Melton.
The cost of the service will be up to $40 Max (depending on what work is done/required, it may be cheaper).
What to bring with you on the day:
Once your bike has been tuned, Michael will take you on a short ride to ensure everything is OK and you are happy.
Deer Park Wellness Trail (Christies Rd to Robinsons Rd)
For any Caroline Springs locals who have been detouring around the Deer Park Wellness Trail, due to the Regional Rail Link works that have been taking place over the past several months, the path is now open for use again.
I rode down the path earlier today to check it out and it is fine to use.
I urge everyone who sees this to read the below link (twice if necessary) - including the comments at the bottom.(Dave)
VERY valuable information for anyone who has an accident whilst cycling.
Fingers crossed you'll never need to use it, but if you do this just may prevent a bad situation becoming even worse!
