June 13 Ballarat Ride

Below are some pics from June's mid-week ride to Ballarat via Bacchus Marsh for morning tea and a heap of back roads. I can't do a map for this just yet as I haven't had time to work out all the roads that we went on. I know I wasn't the only one who had no idea where we were at some stages and it was great to ride some new roads. Morning tea was at a great little cafe down near the market gardens in Bacchus Marsh and lunch was at the Saleyards Hotel in Sebastapol. Thanks to Mark Nicoll for leading the ride and to Noel C for volunteering to be TEC. We had a pretty good turn out of 18 riders at Waurn Ponds then one more from MT onwards - which was greater than expected given the poor weather forecast. We dodged the rain and the northerly wind had dried the roads out nicely after Tuesday's rain.
