Last Months Rides
Thursday December 5th 9 riders started from Kooyong, cycling along Gardiners Creek Trial to join the Yarra Trail at Burnley. Crossing over the Yarra River at MacRobertson Bridge we rode along the South side of the river to Southbank for coffee before returning. Great to see John Phillips back on his bike. Great ride, thanks Thelma and Ian.
Thursday December 12th 10 riders set off from Pettys Orchard for a short ride over the Yarra River to Eltham for coffee then returning to Pettys Orchard where we joined our family members for an enjoyable Christmas break up lunch.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
