Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

Not surprised. No ATB and no GVBR will make a very large hole in BV's bottom line for 2020-2021 Mike I don't know about the ATB, but BV has published figures for the GVBR in recent years and they don't make a lot of money on it. If the number of participants are below I think 3,000, it actually mak...

Re: Melbourne lockdown

I'd rather use the 1 hour to be riding every last minute of it, rather than wasting it on getting a coffee. It does help, having a decent machine at home - but even that broke down last week :lol: and I'm waiting for a part to fix it (giving it a crack fixing it myself). Long live the Nanopress in ...

Re: Melbourne lockdown

We are lucky to live close enough to do the following rides: the Wall, Monbulk - Olinda (note: I don't think I can go all the way to Monbulk, but it is our closest Woolies so I can go shopping?) 1 in 20, Perrins Creek Rd. Sassafras Creek Rd / the Crescent, the Tourist Rd, Montrose to Ferny Creek. Al...

Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

What are they proposing to charge for The Little Vic? Mike The link to the flyer is: https://cdn-au.mailsnd.com/43483/V9jw9gg-vCd_Uab_aPZY2MdsDYb5bUByB_sd8mq1nfg/3293790.pdf It is expensive in my opinion. $2200 for 6 days, 5 nights and 4 days of riding. It includes all transfers and accommodation i...

Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

I doubt this year's ride will go ahead, even if the current restrictions are relaxed. Having 4,000 people close together, using the same amenities and sweating all over each other doesn't seem like a good idea. And a month later not much has changed. Now what about the Around the Bay. Some of those...

Re: Melbourne lockdown

From the Q&A on The Age: So no driving to go for a bike ride. It's arguable that you could drive, for example, to the nearest MTB trails if you intend riding MTB. The nuances are almost impossible to define or understand. No, not arguable. If you can ride your MTB locally to exercise , then you...

Re: How was your recreational ride today?

Thanks for the info Matt. I'll check it out but it can be very slippery on that side of Mount Dandenong.
The west side is completely different.

Re: How was your recreational ride today?

I just looked up Tchan track. Is it newish? I've done Barge and VW many times but never saw Tchan. It's not on my Feathertop map.
Saying that I may have done it not knowing what is was called. Is it the one with many jumps?
Did you drive to Olinda first or do you live up that way?

Re: How was your recreational ride today?

Very nice Matt1.
I was supposed to be riding somewhere along the Loire this month.
And seeing Rammstein in Holland.
Oh well, working is ok too.

Re: Ministerial Runaround on M80 Upgrade and Merri Creek Path extension link

Hang on, we have a Minister for Roads and a Minister for Transport Infrastructure? So roads are not transport infrastructure or transport infrastructure is a all transport excluding roads? And bicycle paths are not roads or are they roads for bicycles? If you are not getting a response from either n...
