MCC S3 Ride - Sun 19 May 2013

posted Apr 25, 2013, 7:56 PM by Melton Cycling Club   [ updated May 15, 2013, 2:18 AM ]
On 19 May we will be riding from Gisborne to Woodend and then on to Newham (near Hanging Rock) before retracing our steps.
The ride distance is approx. 80km and a map of the route can be viewed  here.

Riders who may find the full ride distance daunting should consider either just riding Gisborne-Woodend return or commencing and finishing their ride in Woodend.

For those riders wishing to ride the full route from Gisborne, you will meet at Gardiner Reserve (opposite the aquatic centre) at 7:15am to be ready for a 7:30am departure.
Riders who do not wish to ride the hill out of Gisborne will meet at the Ross Watt Reserve in New Gisborne at 7:15am to be ready for a 7:30am departure.

It is anticipated both groups will be in Woodend around 8:15am. Riders who wish to join the ride at Woodend need to be there around 8am in anticipation of the arrival of the Gisborne riders.
The Woodend meeting point will be the same place we stopped after the Trentham ride, the car park on Margery Crescent, just past Forest Street.

It is anticipated that there will be a coffee break at the Newham General Store before we return to our departure points.

The weather forecast for Sunday indicates the prospect of a cloudy day with a chance of showers.
Given that it is normally colder in Gisborne, riders should dress accordingly and perhaps include a rain vest in the event the showers arrive.
