I'm in Kinglake. I don't mind taking the lead on this ride as I know the whole Yarra Valley very well. I ride the hills most weekends.
If you guys are in the CBD then don't worry about meeting in Kinglake. We could just meet in Warburton at the bakery. I like to go up the Reefton across to Marysville. Down the Reefton is not as fun. No point going back via the Black Spur due to cops and traffic. We could meet in Warburton and go to Marysville. Have a coffee or some lunch then go back the same way. Only a few hours if people don't want to be out all day. Sunday the 3rd sounds like the best option I think. If some of you guys are local to Kinglake, then I can meet some of you here then we can do Chum creek to Healsville and across to Warburton. Bit of fun on the way to the meet. Any CBD or western suburbs guys that will give you time to get to Warburton. I'm in favour of early runs but since you guys got a bit of travel could make it 10am in Warburton.
