Takes all kinds - clearly overestimated his abilities. I certainly don't !

It seems to indicate that, from today (unless circumstances changed), roads are open along the main 4 ascents, i.e. from Upper Ferntree Gully, Montrose, The Basin and Monbulk, right up to Ridge Rd. No mention of the observatory in this article, though.

Matt1 wrote:I think the 15 km limit was conditional upon reaching a first dose vaccination rate of 80% in the eligible population, which has been predicted as unlikely this weekend by the health minister. Next weekend might be a goer. The political commentary is very much oriented towards letting things rip once vaccination rates are up, at least until the hospital gets overwhelmed anyway. I expect there should be a lag between massive spreading and the hospital overload, so you might have a brief window to complete some rides in the near future, at the very least.
