For those who like to ride new roads, make new friends, shoot the breeze and eat delicious treats from the General store - this is for you. 50 Grinders turned up the first time to test the waters and confirmed it's a great day out on the bike.
Here's the dirt from Angry on the ride.
Melbourne Gravel Grinders #3
Date : Sunday 5th June
Rego opens : 9:30am Start time : 10:00am
Start and Finish : Hurstbridge train station
Distance : ~80km
We'll return to the Hurstbridge area for this ride but on the south side this time. Plenty of nice dirt roads, a moderate amount of hills and some awesome views. We'll see Smith's Gully, One Tree Hill, Sugarloaf Reservoir, Kangaroo Ground and a whole lot more. Train leaves Flinders St at 812am, arrives at 918am. This is your only option unless you drive out.
