It’s not only the end of lockdown and some restrictions, it’s also the last Saturday of July meaning we will start form Yarragon for our Westbury ride.

Look forward to catching up for an enjoyable and cohesive group ride. Please have your batteries charged and lights on for our ride.

Darnum will be over 5km away for some. Those who live closer may want to ride from Darnum can do so but will have to do so in pairs. Masks are to be worn when not riding.

29 May 2021 Ride

Yes, the weather is forecast to be good tomorrow morning. Yes, its the last Saturday of May BUT the recent Covid lockdown restricts many of us to ride our usual Yarragon circuit. This being the case I suggest those who should ride from Yarragon to do so and the other will have to ride within their 5kn radius zone.

Ian will be one of those who will have to ride somewhere closer to Warragul.

It will be partly cloudy with areas of fog in the southwest in the early morning. Areas of morning frost about the ranges. Light winds. Overnight temperatures falling to between zero and 4 with daytime temperatures reaching between 8 and 14.
