The ride can take several routes and is determined on the day of the ride. Friendly bunch of like minded local cyclists.

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!
