Things are quiet at MGG HQ as we tackle other rides, but Rolly over at fixed.org.au is putting together a semi supported overnight camping trip that looks like a good time, whether you have a sweet fixie, a beared randonneur or a Tour Divide style MTB. Details below:
FOA is proud to announce it’s first ever sleepover!!!
Join us for a supported overnight camping trip to the Upper Yarra Reservoir Park on Saturday April 27th.
Just bring all your gear to the roundabout at the rear of Fed Square at 8am (SHARP) on the 27th of April and we’ll take it for you, allowing you to enjoy the cruisy ride to the park. The ride is approximately 65km (sealed) or 85km (unsealed) from Lilydale and there will be a sealed and unsealed option for those attending. The unsealed option would ideally require tyres of 30mm+ and involves approximately 900m of climbing.
The 8:30am train to Lilydale will be overrun as we head out en-masse, Reefton bound!
Your campsite, BBQ, transport of all your gear and route map is all provided in the ticket cost. Please BYO alcohol to Fed Square for transportation. Please note riders are required to bring their own breakfast supplies.
The campsite has the following amenities!!
Hot Showers (!!!!!!)
Camp Kitchen (this includes fridge/freezer/ice/boiling water/tables)
All participants will be given a route map and a cue sheet prior to the event.
PLEASE NOTE – THIS EVENT WILL OBVIOUSLY BE AFFECTED BY THE WEATHER, IT IS CAMPING AFTER ALL! PLEASE PACK WARM CLOTHING FOR TRANSPORTATION IF NECESSARY. IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, PARTIAL REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN, BUT CAMPSITE COSTS ARE NON REFUNDABLE AS WELL AS SOME BOOKING FEES ETC. But you should totally just come anyway.
Please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if i’ve missed something obvious!
