What about Lunch?
Garden Café in Queenscliff – this is a gorgeous garden café – CASH ONLY (prices approx. $13 sandwiches & meals $17 – $25)
How do we get home?
We finish the ride at South Geelong & catch the country train back to Melbourne, where we catch a train home or you can ride depending on how the legs are feeling.
Remember to bring your Topped Up MYKI Card, some cash for lunch and LBOYB ID cards (if you don’t have one yet then ask the Leader for one).
Also bring a spare tube and the tyre levers just in case.
BOM forecast is 24 Degrees C
Recommend you wear sunscreen
I estimate the ride to be 7 – 8 hours.
Let me know if you want to join in the fun, the ride is limited to 8 riders max, so be quick. (country trains can only carry a limited number of bikes)
