Perhaps a ride in the coffe & cake style might be a nice introduction. Also, should be the chance of a bit of off the path action around Kew & Collingwood in the Yarra bend area, unless your'e not allowed to ride in there anymore. Or split the difference and get onto a rail trail just out of Melbourne? Lilydale - Coldstream, Warburton, or Eildon. Any rail trails or similar just out the North of Melbourne Slow6? I don't get out that way much anymore!
Okay. How about we meet @ the Studley Park Boathouse & partake in a bit of Yarra Trail action before scoffing some of their delicious baked potatoes with sour cream? The trails are a bit crap but the meet 'n' greet is the real object of the exercise! The ride is more of a 'bonus'...
Here's the Boathouse's website & the location on Google maps. What do you think? The location is pretty central so it's kinda fair for everyone.Boathouse websiteGoogle Map

anyone thinking to buy any of the retrobike riding gear?
I have thought about it but because I get all my gear for bugger all the price is a bitter pill to swallow! I'd be able to commission an Austalian Retrobike kit for less... if the powers that be were agreeable & we could get enough to commit to a kit or 2... No, wait. It all seems like too much hard work. I take it all back!
