Quiet Sunday ride

Postby HughieP » Wed 06 Mar 2019, 4:24 pm

Looking like nice weather for a ride this long weekend. Am thinking of jumping the Vline up to Bacchus Marsh and exploring some of the roads from the Ballarat to Melbourne Classic of years gone by.

Rough plan as it currently stands involves catching the 8.23 from Footscray, jumping out at Bacchus Marsh at 9. Bit of a ride as per below. Nothing fast (unless you count the ride down Warrenheip) and probably catching the 4.52 from Baccchus Marsh back into town. Early bailout could apply at Ballan but I am thinking downhill with the wind from Ballan to Bacchus Marsh so why bail early.

If anyone is keen to tag along, let us know.

Four hours to get to the top of Warrenheip from Bacchus Marsh. An hour and twenty for the return journey. The ride out is mostly the ride Tim gave me to get up to Ballarat the day before 'the classic' in 2014.
