Here we go again.... this is the same cruise we did first time out and its still the best
This is the Melbourne Meetup and Cruise RSVP and organisation thread. Post here your attendance, what suburb you expect to be leaving from, if you're a driver post if you have spare seats and if you don't drive and want to come along for the ride we'll organise you a seat.
This is the route for the cruise: Google Maps
We'll be meeting at LaTrobe University at 10:00am. We'll then make our way up through Peter Brock's hometown of Hurstbridge and up the extraordinarily twisty Heidelberg-Kinglake Road over Mt Beggary. Our first major stop will be in Kinglake for a morning coffee and chat. Then we continue east to Toolangi and then south along the superb Chum Creek Road to Healesville. From Healesville, we'll go up the Maroondah Highway, an excellent stretch of road you might have heard of, it's called Black Spur drive. At the top of Black Spur drive is our lunch stop, the Black Spur Inn. From the Inn, we continue to Marysville and down Reefton Spur via Reefton to Warburton where we'll probably do a run up and down the magical Mt Donna Buang. Then it's just a relaxed cruise back into the city.
What to bring: Full tank of juice, 2-way radio, camera, some money for a counter lunch.
The day is a very relaxed day and you should be back in Melbourne mid to late afternoon depending on how many impromptu stops are made along the way. It's a great day to enjoy some scenery, superb tarmac and have an enjoyable day meeting each other while enjoying that thing that brings us together: our cars.
Look forward to seeing you there!
We usually get a pretty good turn out so make sure to RSVP in this thread so I can make a booking at the Black Spur Inn for lunch!
