All riders are invited to join us on Sunday 10th January for a special ride along the Maribyrnong River Trail from Newport to Brimbank Park and back again. We will be starting from The Strand car park at 10 am sharp. Please arrive in time to begin riding at 10 am. The car park is free and is very convenient to the bike path. It is right behind the Newport Power Station.
We will be following the Maribyrnong River Trail to Brimbank Park and back again. The ride pace will depend on the weather conditions and the riders that are present so that no one will be left behind. If the conditions are very hot we may shorten the ride accordingly but this decision would be made by the group.
Since part of the trail is unsealed, this ride is not recommended for road bikes. A hybrid or MTB would be more appropriate.
Lunch will be at Brimbank Park. The total ride distance will be around 50 km. It is a moderate ride, but probably not suited for beginners.
