Day 1 (75Kms)
For the first part of the day we will meet at Tallarook and from there we will be transported to Mansfield which is approx. a two hour drive away.
From Mansfield we will ride a 38km stretch before stopping for lunch at the Merton BP/General Store, they have sandwiches, burgers, etc. From Merton we continue to ride for 24Kms to Cathkin where we turn off the main trail and ride another 13Kms to Alexandra where we will stay overnight.

Day 2 (72Kms)
After a chunky breakfast we ride 13Kms back to the main trail, then 23Kms to Yea where we stop for lunch. From Yea it's another 36Kms back to Tallarook.

Cost of transport from Tallarook to Mansfield is at a flat rate of $295 whether it's for one person or the maximum of ten people, so if we aim for ten riders we'll each pay $30.57 including PayPal fees. If we fall short of ten people we will need to make up the difference in cost on the day.

I'll look into the the accomodation at a later date.

Please ensure that your bike is well maintained and in good condition and I'll check that everyone is carrying two spare tubes, or one spare tube plus a puncture kit, as well as a pump and basic tools.

Remember the bits:
Cash, basic tools, tubes, rain gear, water, snacks, overnight gear, etc.
