MBC Ride to Fairfield Park Boathouse – 1 November 2015

Apologies for the late notice everyone. This Sunday’s ride is technically our October monthly ride.

Meeting place: Federation Square
Meeting Time: 10am
Route plan: To ride anticlockwise circuit around the Capital City Trail, stopping at Fairfield Park Boathouse for a few photos, refresher, whatever takes our fancy. We then continue around the Capital City Trail back to Federation Square.
Distance: Approx 30km
Time: Approx 3hrs

Fairfield Park Boathouse & Tea Gardens is located on a bend in the Yarra River just north of where Merri Creek joins the Yarra River. After passing under the Eastern Freeway (M3) we stay on the Main Yarra Trail and it’s 2km up the east bank.

Rejoining the Merri Creek Trail could be a little more circuitous, but at least the trail does cross to the east bank at Westgarth, so we won’t have to back-track.

We’d love to see a few more faces of Bromptoneers that we met at BUCMEL earlier this month, but again – apologies for the late notice. It’s also a long weekend for many Victorians (Melbourne Cup Day on Tuesday is a public holiday), so if you can’t make it this for this ride, we hope to see you next time.

If you are able to come along on the ride, please indicate this by either commenting below, accepting your invitation for this event on our Facebook page, or follow and message us on Twitter.
