Weekend Rides, Daylesford/Hepburn region, Victoria Australia

I'm hoping to start a regular (maybe monthly, on a weekend) uni ride,
taking in some of the great cross country/bush tracks around the
Daylesford/Hepburn region (Victoria, Australia), also including
surrounding towns.

An example would be a Sunday morning ride around Lake Daylesford,
including heading to a few of the mineral springs nearby, ending up at
a cafe on the lake for a caffeine fix. Another example might be trails
through the Wombat Forest.

If anyone is interested, cool bananas! :p

Sounds like a good idea:)

It's been a while since I did any muni, it would be good to get back
out into the bush again. Any idea when the first ride might be?

Hey, I did a day's riding on the Great Dividing Trail, from Daylesford
to Castlemaine. The bit right near Daylesford was a laugh, very
technical in parts, although probably not a good weekend ride as I
think it may officially be no cycling. The bits around Vaughan Springs
were nice riding too though, and legal. Was a good day's riding, I
think about 60km.

The bike shop in Castlemaine directed me to some nice trails too, they
have a nice loop that they built up for the Singlespeed worlds which is
about 10k I think, with lots of other bits off it for a decent days
riding.

Cool.

There's also all the mtb tracks in the forest around Woodend - I've
been meaning to get over there to check it out on the uni:

I live about 15 minutes out of Daylesford, towards Malmsbury, and
everything permitting, ride most days, mainly in the nearby forest and
reserve. Maybe somewhere like Woodend would be a more convenient trip
for Melbourne guys?

Whilst we are on the topic of thread jacking can I mention there will be
a road ride from Southern Cross station to Brighton this Sunday
4/5/08?

Meet at the corner of Spencer & Collins Streets at 11:00. The ride
will be down the Port Melbourne light rail trail and the bayside trail
to Brighton and return. Should be about 30 km all up.

PM me if you have any questions.

The Chiltern Muniuni weekend sounds great Mal, hope there is a good turn
out. I'd love to get up to North East Victoria sometime this year, but
I don't think May/June is possible :(
