I reckon this ride would interest alot of the folk in the northern suburbs. It's a little different from the other regular rides.

Start Time: 6:30pm Thursday Evenings
Distance of Ride: 1.8km Circuit, depends on how many laps you do.
Ride Contact Details: Aleks – The Bike Shed, 1/63 Hamilton St Craigieburn 3064
Phone: 03 9308 1788
Hot Laps are a great way for experianced roadies/racers to get some good training in, and also great for beginners and even recreational roadies.
National boulevard is a 1.8km circuit loacted behind the Ford Factory in Campbellfield. It is used by Coburg CC and the Northern Vets as a Criterium circuit. Its Fast, wide, smooth, well lit and safe.
The stronger guys usually get into a paceline and push hard, while those not interested in vomitting take it at their own pace. The circuit is great beacuse no one really loses contact, even if dropped.
Its great because it can be used to do Sprints, TTs, pacelines, mock races and base kays and also give less experienced riders time in a bunch.
