Sunday ride to Williamstown

It’s been a little while since we’ve had a quiet, social ride just to ourselves… so I was wondering; are you free this Sunday, 9th July?

The Plan is to meet at “Cow Up A Tree” (Docklands) at 10am and ride around to Williamstown. A pretty cruisey affair, and great if you’ve just bought a Brompton, joined the group, or haven’t been riding much since it’s turned a bit nippy of a morning.

A stop for brunch/lunch at a cafe is definitely on the cards so bring something warm for when we stop.
If we decide to catch the punt back across to Fishermans Bend on the return leg (as we have previously) you’ll need $5 for the fare. 

As always, the route is subject to change on the day as decided by consensus agreement between whomever turns up.
Looking ahead to our end of month ride, the suggestion penciled in for Sunday 30th July is to venture out of Melbourne to Castlemaine (not far from Bendigo). There we catch the Victorian Goldfields Railway (steam train) to Maldon for lunch before riding back to Castlemaine.

This ride may be weather-dependent. A large portion of the ride is through a forest area on unsealed gravel tracks, and can get quite boggy.  

As always, if you wish to contribute a ride suggestion, please feel free to comment below. 

Happy Bromptoneering!

      Hi Elsbeth,
      A rather crucial piece of information that I neglected to include! 10am is the meeting time (I’ve updated the post; thank you!) – we’re not into early starts here.
      Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.
      : )

    Can my brompton bike take the 50km Around the Bay ride? I’ve registered but not sure if my brompton bike can handle it ):

      Hi Florence,
      There is no problem with your Brompton handling the route. We have, as a club and as individual riders, completed longer rides and on rougher surfaces than roads.

      If you are concerned about your ability to complete the ride, please join some of our group rides prior to the event.
